Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has unveiled its 2023 departures of African Wonders, a family-friendly Private Jet journey; Timeless Encounters, a returning favourite itinerary; and International Intrigue, a 24-day adventure, following record interest in the Four Seasons Private Jet 2022 line-up.
“The overwhelming interest in our Private Jet offering is not only a testament to pent up demand, it also highlights the desire for seamless service that prioritises health and safety in this new era of luxury travel,” said Christian Clerc, President, Global Operations for Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “We are excited to share even more transformative journeys aboard our custom-designed Private Jet, offering travellers the opportunity to rediscover themselves, see the world with loved ones, and forge deep connections that will last a lifetime.”
With all-time high demand and unprecedented sellout pace, the itineraries will allow Four Season’s passengers to seamlessly explore a collection of bucket-list destinations, removing the stress of multiple commercial flights, layovers and delays.
