The luxury jet service by Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, the hotel chain co-owned by Saudi Arabia’s Prince Alwaleed, is to add Dubai as one of its destinations in 2016 when it launches next year.
Unveiled earlier this year, the Four Seasons Private Jet is a retrofitted Boeing 757 which will transport 52 guests at a time on bespoke journeys around the world.
It will begin the trips from February 2015, costing between $69,000 and $119,000 per person, stopping on the way at Four Seasons properties around the world.
Announcing the itineraries for 2016, the luxury hotel operator unveiled ‘Cultural Escape: Europe, Middle East & Africa’, which will begin in London on November 4 and conclude in the British capital on November 22.
On the way, guests will stop in Dubai from November 8-11, staying at the new Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach, and will be able to visit Burj Khalifa, go on a flightseeing excursion over Palm Jumeirah and visit the new Guggenheim Museum during a day trip to Abu Dhabi.
“The launch of the hotel industry’s first fully-branded Private Jet earlier this year was in response to the growing demand amongst modern luxury travellers for a fully immersive Four Seasons experience both in the air and on the ground,” said Four Seasons executive vice president, global product and operations, Christopher Norton.
“Our new 2016 itineraries offer guests the opportunity to experience new and exciting destinations while enjoying the uncompromised luxury and customized service they have come to expect from Four Seasons.”
All the trips include air travel aboard the Four Seasons Private Jet and ground transportation, planned excursions, all meals throughout the trip and luxurious accommodations exclusively at Four Seasons hotels and resorts.
