Private Aviation Vacations: Luxury That Starts From the Moment You Board the Plane.
There was time when first class air travel on a commercial airline was a real treat – but an international wave of consolidation, cost cutting and security have made the allure of Pan Am or TWA a distant memory. Certainly, flying private can be more expensive, but it’s luxurious amenities and convenience create a viable travel alternative for many.
New escape locations are very exclusive – so much so that commercial flights have not kept up. So getting to that private Pacific island might take four flights on a commercial airline. A private flight can get you there directly, fly you where you want to go, and continue the vacation throughout your journey in the comfortable and spacious cabin.
Some places you can reach only via private jet:
Necker Island is a 74-acre island in the British Virgin Islands just north of Virgin Gorda. The island is owned by Sir Richard Branson – and the only way to get there is by private jet. Once you are there, everything is taken care of. www.neckerisland.virgin.com/
Buzios, Brazil has been called the St. Tropez of Brazil. With the World Cup coming up, it is the perfect jetset destination for beach lovers and adventurers. Destination Luxury and Beck and Score are organizing a trip to Buzios which include Bossa Nova Tickets to the World Cup, the best seats in the Stadium. Enjoy a 6 Night stay in a luxury villa and surfing lessons with Pro Surfer Garrett McNamara. For more information click here.
Or, the Andaz Peninsula Papagayo Resort where the Gulf of Papagayo meets the sapphire blue waters of Culebra Bay in Costa Rica. The breathtaking setting – a relaxing ocean with a mountainous background – will make you feel like you belong here. This location is quite exclusive, and the nearest commercial airport isn’t close – so a direct private flight makes sense. More info here
Ani Villas Anguilla, fully serviced villas with remarkable facilities and service is another place the private jet is ideal.
