Four Seasons adds two new private jet journeys for 2021
Aboard the all-new private jet, the whirlwind jaunts across the globe will visit Angkor Wat, Easter Island and Petra for the first time.
For some of the world’s elite, checking off their ultimate bucket list has just gotten a whole lot easier. In April this year, Four Seasons Hotel & Resorts announced it was replacing its current plane with a narrow-body Airbus A321LR aircraft, seating 48 passengers and featuring larger bathrooms, more social areas and interactive onboard workshops.
Now the brand has announced its itineraries for 2021, with some returning by popular demand, such as the Timeless Encounters trip, which visits bustling city centres and serene island in nine destinations, and the International Intrigue journey, which spans four continents and includes stops at Seattle, Kyoto, the Maldives, Marrakesh and St Petersburg.
Using feedback from past customers – with return jet guests making up 34% of the travellers in 2019 – Four Seasons has designed two brand-new offerings.
Scheduled to take off on 31 December 2020, the 21-day Remote Wonders trip will kick off in ultimate style with a New Year’s Eve party in Dubai before flying to Hoi An, where the city’s renowned Vietnamese tailors will design guests custom outfits. Then it’s off to Cambodia and Bangkok, followed by a catamaran sail through the islands of the Seychelles and a trek through the Rwanda’s Virunga Mountain to observe gorillas in their natural habitat. The journey will end with a torch-lit barbecue feast in Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park.
The other new offering is the 24-day expedition starting on 5 October 2021 called the Ancient Explorer. Starting in Miami, guests will stop in Mexico City for a masterclass with mescal distillers before traversing Easter Island by horseback. This will be followed by snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef, learning the art of Muay Thai boxing from professional boxers in Koh Samui, wandering the ancient streets of Petra and exploring the Great Pyramids of Giza. The worldwide foray will finish with back-to-back stops at the new Four Seasons properties in Greece and Spain, where explorers can discover Greece’s Acropolis or opt for a private flamenco class in Madrid.
