A&K’s Private Jet visits Hobart

October 20, 2017 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

Last week, the Abercrombie & Kent (A&K) Private Jet arrived in Hobart for a three-day sojourn as part of its exclusive ‘Around the World with Geoffrey Kent’ tour.

Accompanied by A&K Founder, Mr Geoffrey Kent, 50 travellers were treated to a carefully curated selection of unique experiences in the Apple Isle, the only Australian stop on the epic trip.

Highlights of this trip included helicopter tours to private wineries, Bruny Island wilderness cruises and private tours of local attractions including Australian Convict Sites World Heritage listed. Guests visited the historic Shene Estate, enjoyed an exclusive Gala event at the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) and experienced a premium night-time tour of the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary.

Exclusive charters of helicopters and private aircraft made this one of the largest charter operations that Tasmania has ever seen. Innovative touring options included charter flights over Wineglass Bay and a day spent on a fifth generation family-owned sheep station with a wandering showcase of local Tasmanian produce.

Luxury travel company Abercrombie & Kent has been operating private jet trips for more than 20 years. The journeys operate on a specially customised Boeing 757, converted from its normal passenger capacity to a maximum of 50 guests, with fully lie-flat seats and cabin crew on board for the entire journey.

“It’s a trend which is definitely growing”, says Sujata Raman, Regional Managing Director A&K Australia/Asia Pacific. “Travellers today are time challenged. They want to experience new and out-of-the- way places without the hassle of airport bureaucracy. Travelling by private jet allows access to remote destinations that larger airlines don’t service on a timetable dictated by the itinerary – not an airline’s convenience – and a first class experience getting there.”

The next journey will occur in February 2018, inspired by The New York Times, it has been specially curated by Abercrombie & Kent. Tailored around today’s most compelling headlines, the Private Jet will travel to destinations that range from Cuba and Colombia to Iceland and Israel as well as Samoa and Sydney, accompanied by some of The New York Times’ most noteworthy journalists and contributors, who share their first-hand perspectives on the people and places that shape our world. Prices start from USD135,000 per person.
