From chocolate rooms to fully customizable beds, Four Seasons has done it all. Or so we imagined. But throwing us off completely, the luxury hospitality brand has just introduced the Four Seasons Jet, the industry’s first fully branded private jet experience.
And all you have to do is pack your bags, literally. Each journey includes air travel and ground transportation, planned excursions, all meals throughout the trip and luxurious accommodations exclusively at Four Seasons. “Taking our legendary service to the skies is a natural extension of what we’ve been doing in our hotels for more than 50 years,” says Susan Helstab, Executive Vice President Marketing, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.
What this extension means to the discerning traveler is individually handcrafted leather flatbed seats, globally inspired cuisine and signature Four Seasons service – on board and on the ground. With Four Seasons on the fuselage and the iconic Four Seasons logo on the tail, a Boeing 757 has been completely retrofitted to feature interiors and exterior design customized by the company’s team of design experts. There’s also global in-flight Wi-Fi to keeps guest and staff connected, so that spa treatments, tee times, private excursions and more can be arranged.
All this only to augment the bespoke itineraries! And speaking of, the 24-day, 9-destination journey Around the World itineraries cost $119,000 per person based on double occupancy and the 16-day indulgent Backstage with the Arts costs $69,000. Beginning in February 2015, the Four Seasons Jet will transport 52 guests at a given time. The new jet, including staff and crew, may also be privately chartered at $110,000 or more a day, with a Four Seasons hotel stay required.
