The global luxury travel market is on the rise, as more and more travellers seek exclusive and unique experiences. Private tour organisers are leveraging this trend by offering both established and novel destinations to affluent clients by expanding to locations in the Far East, South America, and others across the globe. However, while exceptional experiences and luxurious accommodations are essential for high-end travel, KlasJet, a well-known exclusive private and corporate jet charter company, highlights that no upscale private tour is complete without first-class transportation.
“In the past few years, we have witnessed an unprecedented surge in the popularity of private jet travel,” notes Lukas Petraukas, a representative from KlasJet. “In 2022, we saw an increase of 20% in private tour flights, compared to 2020. In addition to the well-established benefits of private charters, such as personalised schedules, bypassing crowds and lengthy airport procedures, and heightened convenience and comfort, private jet travel provides passengers with a truly bespoke luxury holiday experience.”
With over a decade of know-how in the private jet charter sector, KlasJet has observed a significant change not only in popularity but also in the preferred holiday destinations of its clients. “While we have taken our clients across a number of locations not only in Europe and Africa, but also Middle and Far East, and Oceania, private jet tours were mainly concentrated on European destinations and African safaris in particular. Nowadays, more of our passengers are looking for more exotic locations beyond their usual scope.”
As per research from KlasJet, luxury travel necessitates excellence at every level, with even the smallest details carrying great importance. “There’s no place for compromise in our industry. We go above and beyond to ensure our clients receive a first-class luxury experience. Our cabin crew members memorise each name of the travelling client to bring the experience to a personal level that commercial flights wouldn’t offer. Crew members are all trained in areas such as human psychology, fine dining and sommelier courses, protocol-related behaviour, professional presentation, and culture-specific nuances like tailored cabin crew uniforms to adhere to certain cultural norms. The clients are always treated with the utmost respect and care.”
This includes even such details as the exterior and interior of a private jet, Petrauskas notes. Not only comfort but also aesthetics play a large part in this, where the design choices can become a key moment for the client’s choice. The fully tailored approach is also extended to every part of the private jet’s services. While the standard services are impressive enough, the ‘On Request’ incorporates customisable details such as branded uniforms for cabin crew, bespoke kits, choice of the chef or assigning Onboard Flight Manager.
As the global upscale travel market continues to grow, private tour organisers and jet charter companies will have to continuously adapt to meet constantly evolving client demands. To do so, partnering with the right private jet charter companies can ensure the highest standards through and through.
