In the fast-paced world we're living in and with the strong influence of social media on many aspects of day-to-day life, it’s getting harder to make a big impact on romantic occasions. Our Facebook feeds are full of picturesque backdrops from friends’ travels and snaps of high-class restaurants at five-star venues. Luckily, there’s one trump card that will always top any romantic gesture: a private jet for two.
Whether Valentine's Day is around the corner or you simply want to show your significant other how special they are to you, arranging a private jet charter for a romantic getaway will always be a great idea. We’re presenting five suggestions of places to escape to if you're planning a romantic private jet trip. Each of these destinations will perfectly work during any time of the year, including February 14th.
Ah, Paris! If you’re looking for the epitome of romance, the City of Love has to be on your list. Known for fresh croissants, fine wine, and accomplished poetry, Paris is certainly one of Europe’s most romantic cities. Spend your evenings wandering the streets of the French capital, lose yourself in the unique atmosphere or spend your time experiencing the many sights.
Given the occasion, a visit to the Pont des Arts is a must. Follow tradition by inscribing the names of you and your partner on a lock, then add it to more than a million locks already residing on the bridge before throwing the key into the water below in a symbolic gesture of eternal love. Visit the Eiffel Tower at night for the most romantic view, as it sparkles gold every hour for five minutes.
Paris is, of course, home to many of the world’s highest-rated restaurants. Experience three Michelin Star dining at the famous Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée, then head in style to one of the spectacular hotels such as e.g. the Four Season Hotel George V.
By Private Jet to Paris: Three Reasons Why It’s The Best Way to Travel There
Paris is the ideal place for a Valentine’s break. It’s also a wonderful city to visit at any time of the year, though—for business and any type of vacation. But no matter why you’re visiting or whom you’re travelling with, there’s one constant: chartering a private jet to Paris is the best way to travel there. Let us explain why!
A Private Flight Adds a Special Touch to Your Romantic Break
Private flights fit around your schedule and your required departure and landing points. There’s also no waiting around and queuing at the airport! This can allow you to squeeze in an anniversary trip to Paris that you otherwise might struggle to find the time for. And whether it’s Valentine’s Day, your anniversary or your honeymoon, your trip deserves an extra dash of glamour and luxury. The care, attention, and top-class facilities you and your partner will receive, both at the airport and onboard, will make your tip unforgettable. Why not ask your private jet broker to arrange special touches? Whether it’s red roses and champagne on board, a VIP suite, a bespoke in-flight menu, or a top-class luxury limo to whisk you to your hotel, they can help.
Save Time and Stress When You Fly to Paris for Business
It’s often said that time is money. When you fly commercially, it’s very easy to waste time through no fault of your own. Early check-in times and long queues at the desk: endless waits at the luggage carousel and the shuttle bus stop; and nowhere to work in comfort and privacy at the airport (or in-flight). Not to mention, of course, early arrivals and late departures to fit in with commercial flight schedules and antisocial flight times. These can all necessitate overnight stays. The time wasted when you fly commercially is your time. It could be much better spent either working, relaxing, or both!
When you fly privately, you can arrive just a short time before your plane leaves—and the plane will leave at a time you have chosen. Meanwhile, you can wait in a private lounge, often with associated facilities for working or meeting. You can leave and arrive at more convenient airports, reducing transfer times. You can work or hold meetings onboard the plane, in privacy and peace. On arrival at your destination, your luggage will be swiftly brought to you, and a car can be waiting to take you immediately to your meeting or hotel.
Make Family Vacations Easier and More Fun
A private jet to Paris is ideal for taking the family on vacation too, providing comfort and convenience. Scheduling your own flights means you can avoid disturbing your children’s routines and bedtimes, and avoid long airport waits. Nobody wants to start (or end!) a family holiday feeling grumpy and tired. Flying the family on a private plane to Paris can ensure everyone lands feeling refreshed and ready to have fun. Families will enjoy the luxurious amenities, such as high-class refreshments and in-flight entertainment, too.
Private Airports Near Paris
There are several private airports near Paris, with three under 10 miles away.
Let’s look at the top choices for private travelers.
Le Bourget Airport (LBG), 9 miles away
Le Bourget Airport is the preferred option for most travelers. Dedicated entirely to private jet passengers, it’s adjacent to Charles De Gaulle Airport. This makes it ideal for flight connections (and meeting up with delegates travelling commercially). Le Bourget is open 24 hours a day for arrivals and for daytime and evening departures. There are several FBOs (Fixed Base Operators). Available services include VIP lounges and terminals, meetings rooms, prayer rooms, vehicle-to-plane ramp access and luxury ground transport.
Paris Issy Les Moulineaux (LFP), 4 miles away
While it offers far fewer FBOs than Le Bourget, Izzy Les Moulineaux has a few private lounges providing a range of premium services. Its helipad offers an option for quick and easy transfers into the city center.
Charles De Gaulle International (CDG), 14 miles away
Charles de Gaulle International is the principal airport for Paris. This large international airport has FBOs offering everything from personal shopping services to chauffeur-driven limousines.
Mingle with London’s best and brightest at The Ritz, or get first-hand experience of celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay’s most accomplished fare at the slightly obviously named yet highly regarded Restaurant Gordon Ramsay. For Valentine’s, though, it’s difficult to look past The Shard with its killer views of the capital’s skyline. When it’s time to rest your head you can’t go wrong with the Four Season Hotel London at Park Lane, enjoying their prime location and splendid service.
Traveling to London by a private jet charter, you'll have the opportunity to land at the preferred airport in the city center from where all the major attractions will be easily accessible.
With so many famous models and celebrities constantly stopping over in Milan it will come as no surprise that the extensive list of hotels in the city includes a number of top class venues. Our favourites include the five-star Mandarin Oriental and Park Hyatt Milan.
Once your private jet touches down in the City of Angels, set off to make the best out of your romantic getaway. Take a gondola ride at the Venetian to encapsulate the spirit of Italy and get some much-needed alone time in a packed out city. Wrap up warm at night (it’s the desert, after all) and get a picture at the Bellagio Fountains, the iconic water feature that has been the backdrop of countless Hollywood movies.
There are countless high-end restaurants led by famous chefs around the world all situated in the heart of Las Vegas. If you can’t decide, try the French cuisine of Restaurant Guy Savoy. You’ll have a similarly difficult time trying to pinpoint the finest hotel in the area, but for the ultimate in privacy and luxury we love the five-star, AAA 5-Diamond-rated Skylofts at MGM Grand.
From the breathtaking magnitude of the view from the top of the Empire State Building to the delicate intricacies of The Butterfly Conservatory, there’s plenty of places in the Big Apple that will astonish you and your partner. Some of our favorite spots, especially if you want to focus on spending time together, can be found while simply wandering around Central Park. Check out Belvedere Castle and the Loeb Boathouse if you have the time.
Eleven Madison Park is considered to be one of the best restaurants in all of New York. They use local ingredients, adapting the classic New York City bagel with foie gras terrine. If you can’t book a place there, try Balthazar for a similarly exclusive experience but this time with American-French cuisine from Keith McNally. For a perfect stay on your romantic getaway, Gramercy Park Hotel is a perfect choice. Apart from being an incredibly luxurious venue in itself, its guests also receive keys to the only private park in the whole city. The perfect end to a perfect day.
