“Late last year, we announced three awe-inspiring 2022 itineraries aboard the new Four Seasons Private Jet. The response was overwhelming, with record sellouts and extensive waitlists, signaling considerable pent-up demand for travel,” says Christian Clerc, President, Global Operations for Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “Now, more than ever, guests are planning bucket-list trips to far corners of the world to make up for lost time. To meet this demand, we’ve introduced two additional opportunities to explore new and remote destinations with legendary Four Seasons service in the sky.”

Clerc continues, “Equally as important as the incredible destinations and experiences, we know that travelers are looking for a seamless service experience where their health and safety is a priority. The Four Seasons Private Jet offers the best of both worlds. From takeoff to landing and at every destination in between, we adhere to the highest standards of health and safety, allowing guests to embrace the wonders of travel in a truly unique way with the utmost comfort and peace of mind.”

A true one-of-a-kind adventure, the expertly curated itineraries available as part of the Four Seasons Private Jet experience allow passengers to seamlessly cross off a collection of bucket list destinations, leaving the stress of multiple commercial flights, layovers, and delays behind.
