In late 2021, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts announced its first Private Jet journeys for 2023. Now, Four Seasons has unveiled three more journeys in 2023, a “record-breaking year for departures as travellers look to resume plans to explore the world,” says the company.

“We have grown our journey schedule to accommodate seven trips in 2023 – the most we’ve ever offered in one year – to best serve our guests as they navigate the changing travel environment.
“Regardless of the chosen itinerary, the expertise and personalised service of our dedicated Four Seasons Private Jet team offers travellers the opportunity to sit back, relax and enjoy every moment to its fullest.”
The seven “expertly curated” itineraries for 2023 will allow Four Seasons passengers to “seamlessly explore a collection of remarkable destinations while enjoying the benefits of private travel”.
