EXCLUSIVE: Four Seasons expands NetJets partnership to the Bahamas and Anguilla

The two luxury providers partnered for private jet and luxury stay trips last year featuring Jackson Hole, Hawaii, Italy and France

 

Four Seasons has for a while had its toes dipped into private aviation with its Four Seasons-branded Boeing 757 it uses for air cruises to various parts of the world, of course using its hotels and resorts and bases for various experiences.

Last October, it partnered with NetJets to create private jet vacations featuring its resorts in Hawaii, Jackson Hotel, the South of France and hotels in Paris, Milan and Florence.

An inside look at NetJets’ jet card programs

From the Citation Excel/XLS to the Gulfstream G450 if you think NetJets is just for fractional ownership and leases think again

 

Go to the NetJets website and you might be surprised at how little information you find about specific programs, particularly its jet card programs. While there is a nice directory of the various aircraft types that make up its 700 strong fleet of private jets, the wholly owned subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway publishes the fewest details we’ve seen from any jet card seller. Yesterday, we talked extensively with executive vice president Pat Gallagher about the company’s programs. 

Private Jet Card Comparisons is donating $50 for every subscription through Father’s Day to Homes For Our Troops

After learning about Homes For Our Troops through Sentient Jet’s sponsorship of Combatant at the Kentucky Derby, I thought, wow what a great cause: “To build and donate specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post-9/11 Veterans, to enable them to rebuild their lives.” I did write up a short piece for this website, and then of course, did nothing else.
