Things have changed in almost every sector—there’s no way around it. But when it comes to how we take vacation, things have become trickier than ever. Travelers are looking for personalized, private experiences now more than ever and in response to this uptick, many luxury hotels and high-end resorts are providing socially distanced, privatized services that begin even before guests arrive to the property—with private air travel offerings.
While many travelers are still worried about flying commercial during a pandemic—even an upgrade to business class comes with its own set of risks—flying private takes a lot of the pressure and risk associated with travel out of the equation.
In order to quell the worries of would-be travelers, luxury hotels throughout North America and the Caribbean are offering new private flight amenities for their guests. From on-demand private chargers to packages complete with round-trip private jet transfers, it’s becoming easier than ever to fly private—even for travelers who wouldn’t usually think to book private.
These new private plane offerings, for those with the means, provide a handful of desirable benefits that make traveling during a pandemic more comfortable, including increased privacy, flexibility and ease when it comes to traveling to a new destination—because when it comes to travel restrictions, things continue to change on a daily basis. What’s more, private jet services can fly out of larger airports but can also service smaller airports for travelers looking to avoid larger crowds at all costs.
Interested in booking your own private plane getaway? Here are a handful of private jet offerings at hotels in the United States, Mexico, and the Caribbean—all of which are open to American travelers and have new safety measures put in place to keep you secure at all times.
