Wings Over the World Journeys Dissolve Distances Between Far-Flung Sites
New regional itineraries feature privately-chartered air in India and across South America
October 21, 2019
Abercrombie & Kent continues to expand its Wings Over the World portfolio with two new regional journeys that offer the ease of an expertly planned luxury adventure enhanced by privately chartered flights. Wings Over India combines the treasures of Delhi, Jaipur, Agra and Varanasi; while Wings Over Argentina, Chile & Brazil explores diverse cultures across South America and stunning landscapes of Patagonia.
With eight different adventures in 2020 and 2021, Wings Over the World journeys explore East and Southern Africa, Northern Europe, the Mediterranean, Spain & Morocco, South America, the Middle East and India. Each uses privately-chartered air to dramatically reduce travel time. Hassle-free flight departures and arrivals avoid layovers due to commercial aviation schedules, with expedited check-in and immigration procedures.
“By linking each stop on the itinerary with privately chartered flights, these journeys open opportunities to include far-flung, but culturally compatible places that are simply not possible with commercial air,” explains Abercrombie & Kent Vice President, Product Development & Operations Stefanie Schmudde. “Our guests appreciate the ability to see and experience far more than they ever thought possible on a single journey.”
Wings itineraries are designed with more time to explore alongside an A&K Resident Tour Director®, who has lived for decades, if not their entire lives, in the region and offers personal insights that can only come from a local. With several journeys limited to just 12 or 13 guests – and none more than 17 – A&K offers exclusive experiences only possible for intimate groups. This might be a private tango lesson with performers at the famed Rojo Tango, lunch with a celebrated local winemaker or insider access to a private hall at the City Palace in Jaipur. Design Your Day® experiences offer added flexibility on a select day, to choose from at least three expert-crafted activities, with one option created specially with active guests in mind.
A&K’s Wings Over the World journeys combine luxury small-group travel with the time-saving convenience of privately chartered air. New journeys for 2020 include:
