Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has unveiled three Private Jet itineraries set to take flight in 2019. Newly added is Latin Escape, a 16-day adventure for those looking to explore the most exciting natural and cultural offerings of Central and South America. Just over two weeks in duration, this new journey is shorter than the 24-day around-the-world journeys, and takes travellers to Miami, Costa Rica, Buenos Aires, Bogotá and even includes an escape to the Galápagos Islands, all in the care of Four Seasons.
The Four Seasons Private Jet allows travellers to fulfil their most extraordinary travel dreams aboard a custom designed aircraft, while enjoying personalised Four Seasons service every step of the way and luxurious accommodations at Four Seasons hotels and resorts. While visiting the remote Galápagos Islands during the Latin Escape itinerary, guests will stay at accommodations carefully selected by Four Seasons.
Back by popular demand, two of the most coveted Four Seasons itineraries are also featured on the 2019 roster. Timeless Encounters is a 24-day exploration of lively city centres and remote islands, including a day trip to the Taj Mahal. International Intrigue, a journey across nine diverse destinations, celebrates the magic of culturally-rich cities such as Kyoto and St. Petersburg set in dynamic contrast to the untamed paradise of the Serengeti. Both journeys provide insider access like never before in the most captivating destinations and are projected to sell out once again.
