In a world first luxury hotel group Four Seasons will take to the air. With all the luxury of a flying five star hotel the sky is literally the new limit as the Four Seasons Jet becomes the industry's first fully branded private jet experience.
The iconic Four Seasons logo will be emblazoned on the plane's tail and the fuselage. Inside the re- fitted Boeing 757 interior will be customized by the company's team of design experts, with custom leather seats that convert into flat beds and 52 seats instead of the usual 233. With this much space and style TLTB expects this to be a truly high flying travel experience. Beginning in February 2015, the Four Seasons Jet will transport guests on bespoke journeys with a distinctly Four Seasons flavour. Everything will have FS flair from the moment you book your trip. There will even be a dedicated on-board concierge, who will coordinate with local Four Seasons concierges in each destination travel and Four Seasons in-flight staff.
Global in-flight Wi-Fi keeps guests and staff connected, so that spa treatments, tee times, private excursions and more can be arranged 'on the fly' to augment each itinerary. Travellers will also have access to exclusive experiences available only to Four Seasons Jet passengers.
Four Seasons created private jet journeys that focused exclusively on stays at Four Seasons properties worldwide in 2012. The 'company jet' takes things one stage further. It is inspired says Four Seasons by 'an ambition to reimagine the future of luxury hospitality'. The decision to offer one-of-a-kind trips aboard a custom-designed Four Seasons Jet reflects an understanding of our guests' evolving needs and preferences,' says Susan Helstab, Executive Vice President Marketing, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. 'It recognizes their desire to pair adventure and discovery with the luxury of a fully immersive Four Seasons experience.'
'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 Helstab, 'The Four Seasons Jet showcases the unforgettable people and experiences that make Four Seasons unique. It speaks to our pioneering spirit and the aspirations of today's modern luxury traveller in an imaginative new way.'
Three exclusive have already been created and can be booked from today., including an around the world extravaganza and an art tour. Reservations aboard the new Four Seasons Jet are open for the following trips:
