Known for delivering the highest standard of hospitality experience across the world, the Four Seasons brand is synonymous with luxury and travel. In 2015, the brand made headlines with the launch of its first-ever private jet service, entering the Canadian hotel giant into a new era of travel and raising the bar for hotel groups across the globe.
Each year, the luxury brand unveils new exciting itineraries for the jet experience, offering the ultimate opportunity to travel the world in unrivalled luxury and with the utmost privacy, convenience and no holiday-planning stress in sight. The 2024/2025 itineraries have now been delivered, inviting families, friends, couples or individuals to discover locales and cultures and get to know the world in a way few have before.
The Four Seasons Private jet calendar begins with African Wonders, running from 29 December 2024 to 10 January 2025 and is the perfect way to start the year as you mean to go on. Beginning in Greece at the iconic (and utterly sublime) Four Seasons Astir Palace, the jet then takes guests to the beautiful African continent, with stops in Egypt, Tanzania, Rwanda, Mauritius, Zambia and finally, South Africa. Experiences include visiting the ancient Pyramids of Giza, soaring over the Serengeti in a hot air balloon (and a champagne breakfast in the bush), snorkelling in the Indian Ocean and experiencing the emotions of witnessing gorillas close up in Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park. Guests stay in Four Seasons properties along the way, including Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti, Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita and Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff, Johannesburg.
Following the African adventure, an Asia Unveiled itinerary will begin, taking place from 3 March to 18 March. The Four Seasons Private jet will soar to Southeast Asia this time, taking in its heady cities and idyllic islands. The trip begins in Tokyo before flying to Bali, Maldives, Hoi An, Bhutan, Angkor Wat and finishing up in Bangkok. Priceless experiences include learning the secrets of the samurais in Tokyo, watersports in Maldives, hiking to Bhutan’s cliffside Tiger’s Nest Monastery and enjoying a Vespa foodie tour of Hoi An. Homes-away-from-home include Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan, Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru and partner boutique hotel Zhiwa Ling Heritage Paro.
But hotels and experiences aside, one of the trip’s most comfortable and exciting parts is flying aboard the 48-seater Four Seasons Private Jet. The new custom-designed jet debuted last year, now offering more space to stretch out and move around, with a new addition being the Lounge in the Sky. Passengers can also enjoy spacious bathrooms, an improved in-flight entertainment system, a purpose-built passenger app, a concierge and a journey physician. The Four Seasons Executive Chef delivers a bespoke menu inspired by the trip’s destinations, and the team takes care of all ground transfers, luggage coordination, and general planning.
“Each Four Seasons Private Jet Experience has been crafted with a singular focus on our guests, building itineraries that celebrate the journey as well as the destination, and ensuring that each moment can be personalised to make the experience that much more memorable,” says Alejandro Reynal, Four Seasons President and CEO. ‘With Four Seasons’ genuine heart on display each step of the way, there is truly no travel experience quite like it.’
‘So many of our past guests have talked about the friendships they made with fellow passengers and the special bonds formed with Four Seasons people,’ adds Marc Speichert, Four Seasons Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer. ‘All itineraries allow for real-time customisation, personalisation based on guest preferences, and plenty of time to enjoy every moment. It’s why our guests love this experience and continue to book with us time and time again.’
Four Seasons is set to roll out more Private Jet Experience itineraries on the 2025 calendar. Limited space is currently available on Four Seasons Private Jet’s 2024 itineraries, with upcoming trips including Ancient Explorer (28 August – 20 September 2024), which includes a trip to Taormina and a stay at the star of season two of The White Lotus, and Uncharted Discovery (30 November – 20 December, 2023).
