by Richard Zaher / Feb 07, 2017

Valentine's Day on a Private Jet

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.

Paris

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.

London

England has maintained its age-old reputation as the land of rainy whether and exquisite manners. Throw in the royal family, strawberries and cream, high-end tea and a distinct British charm and it’s easy to see why so many have fallen in love with Blighty. If you’re looking to visit England, consider its spectacular cosmopolitan capital which offers countless sights and hundreds of top-quality restaurants.

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.

Milan

On top of the elite group of international cities recognized as the fashion capitals of the world, Milan is an important destination that your partner is bound to adore. With so much jaw-dropping architecture you can stroll around the city and admire but don’t forget about the Duomo (Milan Cathedral). This stunning piece of medieval architecture is located in Piazza del Duomo, and is not too far from Ristorante Tokuyoshi. The Michelin Star restaurant blends traditional Italian cuisine with Japanese influences for a mouth-watering combination from Head Chef Yoji Tokuyoshi himself.

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.

Las Vegas

Las Vegas is a great suggestion on the list of romantic destinations by a private jet for at least two reasons. It’s a great city to explore for both travellers and gambling enthusiasts. Why not have a Valentine’s Day with a twist in gamblers’ paradise Las Vegas?

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.

New York

New York is a must among the US destinations for a couple’s little escape by private charter. If you’re traveling on Valentine’s Day, the weather in February can be a little chilly – but don’t let that deter you. Wrap up warm and enjoy the world-famous attractions the city has to offer.

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.

Regardless of the occasion, arranging a private jet charter flight to any of these amazing destinations is probably one of the best gifts to offer to your other half. Our expert flight team will help you arrange the details of your trip according to your preferences so don’t hesitate and book your private jet for an unforgettable romantic getaway.
