Building on its existing, ultra-exclusive Around the World by Private Jet tours, the Four Seasons hotel group has unveiled an all-new aircraft for its 2015 onwards itineraries.
A retrofitted Boeing 757 features exclusive design touches, both internally and externally, following close collaboration with Factorydesign. Finished in black, with the Four Seasons logo emblazoned on the fuselage and tail, the 757 is a decidedly different approach to the previous tours, which have operated since 2012 on an un-branded jet.
The aircraft’s interior features just 52 leather-lined seats, as opposed to a capacity of 233 in standard format. These will be combined with plush carpeting, in-flight Wi-Fi services, an onboard concierge, contemporary bathroom facilities and on-board chefs to take Four Seasons’ “legendary service to the skies’ according to Susan Helstab, executive vice president of marketing, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.
Working in partnership with Four Seasons Hotels, TCS Expeditions and Iacobucci HF Aerospace, Factorydesign – as Four Seasons’ preferred design partner – has defined the Four Seasons Private Jet experience. “Designing luxury interiors and state-of-the-art flatbed leather seats to create a unique cabin for only 52 guests, Four Seasons continues to re-imagine luxury hospitality with the introduction of the hotel industry’s first fully-branded jet experience,” commented Factorydesign director, Peter Tennent.
Reservations are currently open for three trips. The first, in February 2015, is a 24-day, nine-destination journey beginning in Los Angeles and concluding with a celebratory dinner in London. Highlighted by an only-by-private-jet stop at the Taj Mahal, all accommodations will be at Four Seasons hotels and resorts. Each journey includes air travel and ground transportation, planned excursions, all meals and accommodation. The Four Seasons Jet, together with accompanying staff and crew, may also be privately chartered.
