Take flight (and a bite of the Big Apple)

Sidestep delays and revel in a seamless, perfectly orchestrated landing in the heart of the Big Apple. The city's accessibility via private jet is unparalleled, ensuring convenience and efficiency for discerning travellers and maximising your time in the city – because, while it might be the 'city that never sleeps', we know how important it is to make the most of every New York minute.

Planning your next journey ?

Our expertise, worldwide connections, and the way we do things with a relentless drive means whatever your travels needs are, we can make it happen for you whenever, however, wherever and every time.

After you touch down, Aman New York brings a splash of Asian influence to a prestigious Fifth Avenue and 57th Street location, extending the elegance and exclusivity of your journey and completing an extraordinary experience in one of the world's most iconic and private-jet-friendly metropolises. Don't pass on a bit of post-flight pampering at the ultra-luxury spa that spans 2,300 square metres followed by a cocktail at the hotel's speakeasy-style bar: The Jazz Club, where a sense of occasion fills the dimly lit spaces and intimate corners.

A swish Swiss journey

When you opt for a private jet to Switzerland, you're not just booking a flight; you're unlocking a magical gateway to the Swiss Alps. With tailored comfort, efficiency, and unrivalled views, you'll touch down in the land of chocolate, watches, and breathtaking mountain landscapes with a little extra ‘oomph’, transforming an already incredible trip into an extraordinary adventure. Geneva Airport is strategically located, offering convenient access to both the city and the surrounding Alpine resorts. It boasts a dedicated private jet terminal, facilitating swift and discreet arrivals, while its efficiency, excellent services, and proximity to luxury accommodations make it an ideal choice for those seeking a seamless and prestigious entry point to Switzerland, whether for business or leisure travel.

Such a stylish arrival warrants an equally opulent stay, provided courtesy of Badrutt’s Palace Hotel. Nestled in the heart of St. Moritz, the iconic hotel is famed for its rich history, its first-class service, and its selection of sought-after gourmet dining options – all of which ooze a certain old world glamour that seems perfectly at home amid the splendour of the Swiss Alps. Those in search of sophistication and refinement will find their desires catered for here, while those looking for a little 80s-kitsch can make their way to the King's Club: apparently the oldest nightclub in Switzerland!

Make an entrance in the Maldives

Embark on an enchanting escape to the Maldives, where the magic begins with a well-timed and executed private jet arrival, bypassing the usual airport shuffle and allowing you to start your holiday that little bit earlier. Touch down directly in paradise to discover crystalline waters teeming with marine life, overwater bungalows, and secluded beaches that feel a world away from the everyday. This extraordinary journey ensures every moment is as memorable as the destination itself, offering a private jet-friendly experience that elevates your Maldivian retreat to new heights of luxury and exclusivity.

Transfer from Malé by seaplane and touch down at Four Seasons Private Island Maldives at Voavah, where seclusion and stunning scenery are the order of the day. With just three exquisite villas, bespoke dining options that afford a unique culinary experience at every meal, and access to the property’s 62-foot yacht, it represents the pinnacle of private island luxury.

Soar through Dubai's skies

If ever there was a glamorous destination made for private jet travel, Dubai is it. The ultimate jet-set hot spot, this desert diamond is all about luxury, style, and unbridled indulgence. Boasting dedicated VIP terminals, efficient customs procedures, and exclusive lounges, Dubai has perfected the process of private jet travel down to a fine art, while its strategic location bridging continents, direct access to luxurious accommodations, and an ever-evolving skyline offer a blend of convenience and magnificence. Immerse yourself in the rhythm of this Middle Eastern emirate and start as you mean to go on with a lavish arrival. 
 

Speaking of lavish, the incredible Atlantis The Royal represents the ultimate in Dubai glamour. Its roster of guests includes an impressive sprinkling of celebs, all of whom come to experience the Atlantis brand's exceptional services and amenities while luxuriating in surroundings that are nothing short of spectacular. Feel every bit the jet setter as you lounge by the swimming pool of Cloud 22, the hotel's super swanky rooftop lounge, which we are tipping as one of the hottest new hangouts in town.

FAQs

2. What types of aircraft are available for charter?

3. How do I book a private jet charter?

Booking a private jet charter typically involves contacting a charter company or broker. You'll need to provide details about your trip, including the number of passengers, travel dates, and any specific requirements. Your Winged Boots Personal Travel Manager takes the hassle out of a private jet charter by liaising directly with the company.

The cost usually covers the aircraft rental, crew fees, fuel, airport fees, and in-flight amenities. Additional charges may apply for special requests, catering, or ground transportation.
