Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts has chosen the A321LR as it prepares to launch a new private jet service.
The aircraft will begin operations in 2021.
Airbus’ A321LR is one of the newest aircraft in its ‘neo’ family, and features new engines and wingtip-mounted Sharklets - as well as extra fuel tanks in the cargo-hold.
These features give the A321LR the efficiency and range to fly nonstop to landmark sights around the world, while maintaining the ability to land at nearby airports, Airbus said.
“The Four Seasons Private Jet experience defines modern luxury aviation, encouraging meaningful connections between people and places while delivering a seamless and highly personalised journey,” said Christian Clerc, president, worldwide hotel operations, Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts.
“Building on the tremendous success of our Private Jet program to date, with consistent sell outs, waitlists, and near perfect guest satisfaction rates, our drive to continuously innovate and push the conventional limits of travel has led to this new opportunity to experience Four Seasons like never before.”
Airbus’ A320 Family has an enviable reputation for comfort with both corporate jet and airline passengers, making it the most popular aircraft in its class.
Designed to make multiple flights a day in airline service, the A320 brings proven reliability to private jet travel, as well as the intrinsic innovation of a modern design.
“With the widest and tallest cabins of any aircraft in their class, Airbus corporate jets are wonderfully well suited to an aircruising role, helping to make journeys memorably enjoyable parts of exclusive travel experiences,” says Airbus Corporate Jets president, Benoit Defforge.
Airbus corporate jet sales of Airbus’s neo Family now stand at a total of 12 aircraft.
