New Private Jet Journey by Abercrombie & Kent Explores Top Bucket List Destinations
Machu Picchu, Easter Island, the Taj Mahal, Angkor Wat.These are some of mankind’s most enduring achievements, places so iconic they have drawn travellers for centuries. Abercrombie & Kent (A&K) has combined these singular destinations into one extraordinary globe-spanning journey – an epic holiday gift – Wonders of the World by Private Jet (September 17 – October 10, 2015).
Only 50 guests will have the privilege of boarding Abercrombie & Kent’s privately chartered private jet – the first to feature fully lie-flat seats – for a luxury experience that begins and ends in the U.S. and features some of the world’s most spectacular places in between: Travel to Machu Picchu on board the luxurious Hiram Bingham train - exclusively chartered by A&K – arriving after the morning crowds have departed. Marvel at the mysterious moai on Easter Island and celebrate at a traditional feast with local dignitaries. Enjoy dinner at the Sydney Opera House, a modern wonder, and attend a private performance.Learn about Angkor Wat from a local archaeologist and explore the site after a champagne breakfast. Visit the Taj Mahal at sunrise and sunset. Discover some of Istanbul’s most unforgettable sites, including the Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace – before the crowds arrive. Experience the romance of Morocco at A&K’s exclusive luxury camp, nestled among the dunes of the remote Sahara Desert and discover Marrakech with A&K founder, chairman and CEO Geoffrey Kent as your host.
“To visit even one of these wonders is a dream for many, but to be able to experience eight of these iconic destinations in one spectacular journey is something only A&K can offer,” says Kent. “To do this trip on your own would take three times as long and cost more than twice as much.”
Wonders of the World by Private Jet , and all of Abercrombie & Kent’s private jet journeys, feature a privately chartered Icelandair Boeing 757-200ER with 50 custom-designed, fully lie-flat Italian leather seats equipped with personal massage system, 4-way adjustable headrests and lumbar support, and a fully lie-flat bed more than 6.5' long (79” pitch).Additional seating enables guests to socialize in comfort with their travel companions, while a full privacy screen and extra-high seat back provide undisturbed rest.While on board, guests enjoy a fully stocked, open bar featuring top-shelf wine and spirits, in addition to an on-board chef who provides personalized, first class meal service. Completing this best-in-class in-flight experience is a flight crew who travels with the group throughout, learning personal preferences and helping to make the private aircraft a familiar and inviting home away from home.
