AirCruises are the latest trend in travel for many luxury brands including Crystal Cruises. Fly on a privately chartered jet, on a specific route, with checkin as painless as possible and often using private terminals. An air cruise will often travel on a routing that no ordinary airline or cruise line can take you, combining unusual and remote destinations with the luxury of a first class private jet.
Crystal Cruises have launched their latest AirCruises which will travel on a Luxury Air Boeing 777-200 Private Jet. Offering an array of global itineraries, these trips form the extension “Crystal Luxury Air”. Crystal will also offer extravagant air vacations around the world aboard a luxurious Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner.
While normal Boeing 777-200 LRs have close to 300 seats when operated by commercial airlines, Crystal AirCruises will have flatbed seats for just 84 guests and a beautifully appointed lounge and bar when it takes flight in October 2017 (see cabin photo above). Crystal will offer 14- and 28-day around-the-world and international itineraries.
“Our mission is to make Crystal the core of what will become the world’s premier luxury hospitality and lifestyle brand collection, not only for the immediate future, but for years to come,” said Crystal Chairman Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay. “The acquisition of our second luxury aircraft is another profound step toward establishing our goal.”
Trips will include accommodations at the world’s most luxurious hotels, the finest Michelin star-level cuisine prepared by celebrated chefs and fabulous local cultural entertainment.
