Captain’s Choice has introduced ‘Australia by Private Jet’, offering two unique aviation adventures that, according to Captain’s Choice Founder Phil Asker, showcase the rich, remote and deliciously diverse:
“Our latest Australia by Private Jet journeys offer an exciting opportunity to veer away from the traditional flight paths. It’s an exciting travel format that showcases the three dimensional beauty of the Outback from the air, taking in Uluru, Coober Pedy and the Kimberley. And because at Captain’s Choice we believe that indulgence is a virtue, our Southern Islands journey has a distinctly gourmet theme, taking guests from Hobart to King Island and from the Coonawarra to Kangaroo Islands, savouring the taste of Australia as they travel,” said Phil Asker.
Travelling aboard a privately chartered Embraer 135 Jet, guest will fly direct between destinations on short but comfortable flights. Captain’s Choice is offering two itineraries for 2016:
