Flexjet and Abercrombie & Kent introduced “Passport to the World,” the first completely private jet experience circumnavigating the globe. For $1.5 million, guests will travel for two weeks aboard a Challenger 605 operated by Jet Solutions to seven landmark destinations and get “exclusive access to hidden wonders that are out of reach to the rest of the world,” ranging from the Forbidden City to the Taj Mahal. It includes a Japanese tea ceremony in Kyoto and a private opening of Istanbul’s Hagia Sophia, off limits to the public.
FalconTrust Air/Avitat in Miami hosted a special gathering of Nascar teams and fans last month. With its regular customers including auto racing icons such as Richard Petty and Bobby Labonte, the new FBO at Tamiami Airport has quickly acquired a reputation for luxury and high levels of service. According to a spokeswoman, one regular visitor refers to FalconTrust Air as “the Taj Mahal of private aviation.”
