VIP flights for round-the-world voyages: Demand for Luxury Cruise in Air on the rise

VIP flights set for round-the-world voyages are finding lot of takers, not just in America, but from around the world.

Some clients, despite having their own jets, opt for such holidays just for the luxury experience, which is like voyaging around the world on a cruise, except you would be 30,000 feet in the air.

After all, if a ship can replicate the comforts of a five-star hotel on water, why can’t a plane?

Crystal Cruises is offering round-the-world itineraries spanning 14, 21 or 28-days ranging from $50,000 to $100,000.

The American company recently acquired two long-range airliners, equipped with customized VIP interiors, a posh lounge and bar and flat-bed first-class seats.


Crystal Cruises’ fleet of VIP-configured aircraft will have their own staff of butlers and pilots.

The VIP Market

Around-the-world VIP flights with multiple stops en route aren’t new. These trips allow you to discover several international destinations on a single private jet journey.

Hotel chain Four Seasons and luxury travel specialists Abercrombie & Kent both launched their own around-the-world products recently, complete with VIP-configured aircraft and stops at selected resorts along the route.
