As its all-new jet prepares for its maiden flight in early 2021, Four Seasons has unveiled details of its 2022 private jet itineraries. Designed with the modern traveler in mind, each trip promises authentic experiences, without ever compromising on safety or luxury.
First announced last year, the new Four Seasons Private Jet is being introduced to replace the luxury hotel group’s previous jet. The new airplane, which is part of the Airbus family, has been designed from top to bottom with the guest in mind, with interactive programming, added space and the residential atmosphere all adding to the unrivaled on-board experience.
The 2022 Four Seasons Private Jet trips include the all-new, family-friendly African Wonders itinerary, which showcases the best of the diverse continent with a host of immersive experiences led by area experts. Beginning in Athens, Europe, the 13-day journey first takes guests on a day trip to Egypt, where they will witness the wonders of the ancient pyramids.
Next, travelers will head to northern Tanzania, home to the expansive Serengeti National Park, with highlights including a hot air balloon ride over the vast grasslands. From here, the itinerary takes guests to the island of Mauritius where they can explore the tropical splendor on offer. Back on the mainland, the next step of the trip is focused on conservation with a guided gorilla walk in Rwanda and a chance to meet the local veterinarians caring for the endangered primates.
Rounding off this once in a lifetime vacation is a visit to the stunning Victoria Falls, followed by a trip to the vibrant city of Johannesburg. African Wonders guests will also have the option to arrange additional activities and excursions throughout the trip, depending on their preferences and interests.
The 2022 Four Seasons Private Jet calendar also features returning favorites, including Timeless Encounters which offers a worldwide tour starting in Hawaii and ending in London, with stops in Australia, India and Thailand along the way, as well as the Ancient Explorer itinerary which focusses on historic points of interest around the world.
“The Four Seasons Private Jet Experience was created for travellers who want to see the world, immerse themselves in new cultures and share in unique adventures, all while part of an end-to-end Four Seasons experience,” says Four Seasons’ president of global operations, Christian Clerc.
“Since our inaugural journey in 2015, the response has been overwhelming. Many of our trips consistently sell out, often with repeat guests, and as travelers look ahead to the future, we expect to see the same level of interest in our 2022 itineraries. Today’s travelers are choosing brands they trust to place a priority on health and safety while still offering the highest quality product. With Four Seasons, they can explore the world with the peace of mind that traveling and staying with us provides.”
As expected, the impeccable level of service that Four Seasons guests receive as standard in the group’s hotels and resorts has been seamlessly transported to the skies, with a dedicated concierge, executive chef and a journey physician among the highly skilled complement of on-board staff.
Four Seasons has also adjusted to the ongoing current climate with a reinforced commitment to ensuring guest health and safety on each of its private jet itineraries, with a medical screening of each guest and member of staff prior to departure and personal hygiene kits available throughout the journey.
Guests will also be reassured to learn that the Four Seasons Private Jet boasts one of the industry’s most advanced, hospital-grade air filtration systems that renews the cabin air every few minutes, removing 99.9 percent of particles, viruses and bacteria.
The Four Seasons Private Jet African Wonders itinerary will run from December 28, 2022 – January 9, 2022, from $104,500 per person.
