Here’s What You Need To Know About The New Four Seasons Private Jet
By Victoria M. Walker
The Four Seasons has announced it will launch a new luxury private jet — complete with a minibar — that will arrive in 2021.
“The Four Seasons Private Jet experience defines modern luxury air travel, encouraging meaningful connections between people and places while delivering a seamless and highly personalised journey,” Christian Clerc, the president of worldwide hotel operations, said in a statement on April 23.
“Building on the tremendous success of our Private Jet program to date, with consistent sell outs, waitlists, and near perfect guest satisfaction rates, our drive to continuously innovate and push the conventional limits of travel has led to this new opportunity to experience Four Seasons like never before.”
The Airbus A321neo will include 48 seats made with Italian leather. Guests will have access to a wellness therapist and educational demonstrations, according to the hotel chain. The plane even has a bar. The jet’s lavatory has a full-length mirror, a leather bench seat and is stocked with toiletries.
The hotel chain already has a similar private jet, which launched in 2014. That jet, a Boeing 757, included 52 lie-flat seats measuring 6.5 feet in length. The Four Seasons said that hundreds of travelers have already flown on the plane. On board, guests are provided Mongolian cashmere blankets, Bose noise-cancelling headphones and other amenities.
According to a write up of the jet by Four Seasons Magazine, service includes complimentary Dom Perignon, the jet’s exclusive champagne provider. A bottle of Dom Perignon retails at about $200 USD.
All of these amenity-rich perks come with a hefty price tag, however.
To partake in the Four Seasons “World of Adventures” tour and ride on the jet, you’ll need to fork over $143,000 per person for a group of two. If you’re a solo traveler, you’ll have to tack on an extra $14,300. The next tour — for which there’s a waitlist — will take place over three weeks in September and October, transporting travelers to destinations such as Bora Bora, Prague, and Dubai.
