Four Seasons unveils luxury private jet [VIDEO]
Four Seasons is bringing its luxury accommodations to the sky. Its extravagant Boeing 757 will start making trips around the world in 2016.
Four Seasons has just revealed its completed private jet that it announced last year.
This Boeing 757, equipped with a Rolls Royce motor, has seats for 52 passengers and has been luxuriously customized by a host of designers.
The reclining white leather seats were handcrafted by Italian VIP aircraft seating manufacturer Iacobucci.
The blankets are made from soft Mongolian cashmere and were commissioned exclusively for the plane. Beneath your feet, a bespoke hand-woven woolen carpet made in Amsterdam.
The crew is made up of ten people, including an Executive Chef, a Sous Chef, a Four Seasons Concierge and a Global Guest Services Manager.
“Our aim is to recreate the hotel experience on the Four Seasons Private Jet, which means creating innovative meals using fresh ingredients, served on the finest tableware and linens, all with impeccable Four Seasons service. The only real difference is that occasionally we have to do a little juggling when there’s turbulence!” says the airline’s chef Kerry Sear.
Four Seasons offers new around the world trips for 2016
Prices start at $69,000 to tour Europe and $119,000 for a trip around of the world. The hotel group is quick to point out that 80% of tickets for trips in 2015 have been sold. The price includes air travel, ground transfers, excursions, and full room and board in Four Seasons hotels.
