Aman has revealed an expansion of its service beyond resorts and retreats in remote destinations, and fixed date private jet itineraries, to include a new private charter aircraft operation.
Aman Private Jet is an airborne extension of the Aman resort philosophy. The new arm builds on the success of Aman Private Jet Expeditions, which are scheduled departures incorporating stays at select Aman properties around the globe, accessed on a private Airbus ACJ318.
The brand new Private Jet option, a 12-seat Bombardier Global 5000 (pictured) is available for charter to elevate existing multi-destination Aman journeys, to create bespoke itineraries incorporating several Aman destinations around the world, or for use between non-Aman destinations. Journeys can be tailored specifically to the needs and interests of guests.
Each booking is fully customisable and every itinerary flexible, with passengers having access to their very own Aman Jet Concierge, who will plan every detail of their travels, ensuring that each journey is an all-encompassing start-to-finish immersion in the Aman way of life.
Aman’s Bombardier Global 5000 is one of the world’s most luxurious and spacious personal aircraft. Seating a maximum of 12 passengers, the plane can reach top speeds of 923 kilometres per hour, with a range of 9,630 kilometres. With flexible departure times and seamless customs clearance overseen by Aman’s expert staff, passengers can commence their journey relaxed and stress-free.
The Aman Private Jet itself is best-in-class in terms of speed, range and field performance, promising the smoothest ride possible for a restful flight. Guests can choose their in-flight meals ahead of their journey and will have access to their luggage throughout their flight, as well as constant, high-speed Wi-Fi connectivity.
Other unique Aman touches include a tea ceremony and amenities from the brand’s all-natural range of Aman Skincare products.
Catering for both short- and long-haul trips, the Aman Private Jet is ideal for group, family and corporate travel.
To celebrate the launch of the jet, Aman has curated four new journeys, incorporating multiple Aman properties, that explore some of the world’s most beguiling destinations in a unique and insightful Aman way. These suggested itineraries include ‘Bali & Beyond’, ‘The Secrets of China’, ‘Indochina Past & Present’, and ‘From the Himalayas to the Sea’.
Bali & Beyond offers passengers the chance to build a bespoke Indonesian itinerary including up to five Aman destinations. These include Aman’s trio of Balinese retreats – Amandari, Amankila and the Aman Villas at Nusa Dua – as well as Amanjiwo overlooking Borobudur in Central Java’s spiritual heartland, and Amanwana, a tented camp on the island of Moyo in the Flores Sea.
From the rural peace of Hangzhou’s West Lake and the thousand-year-old history of Lijiang, to the 21st century dynamism of Shanghai, The Secrets of China combines stays at Amanfayun, Amandayan and Amanyangyun to create a personalised private-jet tour of the country’s hidden wonders – both ancient and modern.
Indochina Past & Present takes in the ancient culture and timeless scenery of Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. With their proximity to the historic city of Luang Prabang in Laos, Cambodia’s temples of Angkor and Vietnam’s coastal Nui Chua National Park respectively, Amantaka, Amansara and Amanoi are uniquely placed to enable this incredible private-jet journey.
Combining a Bhutanese spiritual escape with a Phuket beach break, From the Himalayas to the Sea incorporates a minimum seven-night journey through Amankora’s five lodges, and a three night stay at Amanpuri in a consecutive journey. Guests can enjoy traditional Bhutanese blessings and the wonders of the centuries old culture, followed by secluded beach views and pristine waters in Phuket.
As well as all flights, private transfers and accommodation at Aman properties, each of these journeys includes private tours of key cultural sites plus a host of exclusive privileges at each resort. These range from personalised spa treatments and traditional blessing ceremonies, to unique culinary and cultural experiences.
