New Private Jet experiences: this new Latin Escape takes travellers to Costa Rica, Buenos Aires, Bogotá and even includes an escape to the Galápagos Islands.
Four Seasons’ Private Jet offerings are known to push the boundaries of curated travel. Each year, like-minded adventurers with a desire to explore the world check new itineraries on the horizon.
The world’s leading luxury hospitality company unveiled three unique 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.
The new itinerary offering, ‘Latin Escape,’ was devised in response to increased interest in the Four Seasons Private Jet program by a wide range of travellers, some of whom are looking for a shorter travel experience while still in the comfort and care of the luxury hospitality network.
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.
The dedicated team on each Private Jet journey takes care of everything, including all air travel, ground transportation, planned excursions, all meals and beverages and luxurious accommodations.
