The Best Private Jet Journeys Around the World
Are you looking to splurge on the definition of WOW and a once-in-a-lifetime experience? How about considering a trip around the world…via private jet! In recent years, some of the world’s best brands have built some unique programs which have sold out at every opportunity.
Here are our top 5 featured jet journeys:
Abercrombie & Kent – Africa: Across a Continent by Private Jet
Travel dates: September 29 to October 20, 2023
Price: $134,500 USD, based on double occupancy; single supplement $29,500 USD
Experience the wonders of a continent on a once-in-a-lifetime journey on A&K’s all-new, 22-day Africa: Across a Continent by Private Jet! Beginning and ending in London, this journey takes you from the awe-inspiring monuments of ancient Egypt to the wildlife-rich Serengeti plains, from the vanishing mountain gorillas of Rwanda to the bustling medina of Marrakech, showcasing the best of Africa’s natural wonders along with its rich history and heritage. Join just 48 guests on a comprehensive journey across the breadth of Africa, travelling on their chartered Boeing 757 with the finest Tour Managers and local guides in the industry, and backed by the unbeatable know-how of the company that invented the luxury African adventure.
What we love: The African continent encompasses a great many wonders both natural and manmade, and this trip encompasses both these elements as you visit the pyramids and enjoy exclusive access to the paws of the Great Sphinx, explore the Serengeti in search of Africa’s iconic wildlife and soar high above its plains in a hot air balloon, and so much more!
Aman Jet Expeditions – The Grandest Tour
Travel dates: March 19 to April 9, 2023
Price: $158,888 USD, based on double occupancy; single supplement $43,888 USD
See eight amazing Aman properties in Japan, Laos, Thailand, Bhutan, India, Türkiye and Greece - in just one journey! This 21-night continent-spanning adventure is the most extravagant Aman Jet Expedition to date, with a new day touchdown at the Taj Mahal. Launching in 2023 and complementing an already stellar lineup of experiences, The Grandest Tour will also include sumo lessons in Japan, alms-giving in Laos, hiking to the sublime Tiger's Nest in Bhutan, and exploring the origins of Western civilization in the Mediterranean.
What we love: On the ground, each couple or solo has their own private car, guide and driver for all airport transfers as well as touring each day, as opposed to being in a van or bus with a larger group. You only reconvene as a group during some of the evenings for dinner parties, during the day for exclusive experiences like a private yacht excursion, and while flying where flights are a “cocktail party in the sky” which allow time for the guests to bond and chat about what they’ve seen and done over champagne, Bloody Marys and delicious food.
Four Seasons Private Jet Experience: Uncharted Discovery
Travel dates: November 30 to December 20, 2023
Price: $205,000 USD, based on double occupancy; single supplement $20,500 USD
Evoking the bygone glamour of air travel coupled with thoughtful, guest-centric design, the new, fully customized Four Seasons Private Jet will offer an exceptional experience for 48 globetrotting travellers to explore the rugged wonders of Antarctica, the mysteries of majestic Machu Picchu, and the vibrant rhythms and flavours of South America on this expedition through the enchanting southern hemisphere. While in the air, meet in the exclusive new onboard lounge area to learn from Four Seasons craftspeople through intimate workshops, educational demonstrations or culinary surprises in a showcase of imagination and artistry in the air!
What we love: The new Jet extends the comfort and style of the Four Seasons hotels up into the sky like never before. Settle into one of the 48 handcrafted seats, constructed with soft Italian leather and custom designed by Four Seasons. Each chair offers 6.5 feet (2 metres) of personal space, extends to lie fully flat and is paired with a plush ottoman, providing extended leg room.
The North: Arctic Horizon

Price: $187,000 USD, based on double occupancy; single supplement 10%
Travelling to the spectacular high latitudes of the Arctic has for centuries remained beyond the bounds of our imagination and exploration.
