Four Seasons is known for its world class hotels. However, nowadays the brand offers a lot more than that. In addition to soon launching a yacht experience, Four Seasons also offers a private jet experience.

In this post I wanted to take a close look at the Four Seasons private jet experience, which is a once-in-a-lifetime vacation. What are Four Seasons’ private jet journeys, what’s the experience like, and how much does it cost?

What is the Four Seasons private jet?

Four Seasons private jets is a simple concept. Four Seasons has essentially created a luxury “air cruise” concept of sorts, whereby a few dozen people can travel around the world on a semi-private jet, experiencing all kinds of amazing destinations and hotels, without the hassle usually associated with it.

I think the main draw of this concept is how seamless it all is — you just show up, and all the other details are handled for you. If you’re a very independent traveler who likes to plan your own itineraries, or if you’re looking for the lowest price, this concept probably isn’t for you.

What plane is the Four Seasons private jet?

The Four Seasons private jet is an Airbus A321LR. This is the current longest range version of Airbus’ popular A320-family aircraft, with a range of up to 4,000nm in a standard configuration (this plane’s range is probably significantly greater, given that it has fewer passengers). The journey is sold and operated by TCS World Travel, while the aircraft is operated by Titan Airways, a reliable charter operator.

The Four Seasons A321LR features just 48 fully flat seats, spread across 12 rows in a 2-2 configuration.

Not only does each seat turn into a bed that’s over six feet long, but the ottomans are even designed so that you can have a guest sitting on them, to facilitate face-to-face interactions.

These aren’t the most private business class seats you’ll find out there, though keep in mind that these itineraries are planned so that flights aren’t too long, as they move around the globe in a logical order. Furthermore, all flights operate during the day, and arrive at destinations mid-afternoon. So it’s not like guests will take any ultra long haul flights on this aircraft.

Beyond the seats, the A321LR has a couple of cool amenities, including a bar and social area, as well as a bathroom that’s bigger than you’ll find on just about any narrow body jet out there.

While it’s more beautiful cinematography than informational, check out this cool video review of the Four Seasons private jet experience.

This is a ridiculously snazzy Airbus A321. La Compagnie has an A321neo in an all business class configuration with fully flat seats, but that plane features 76 seats. So the fact that this plane only has 48 seats really gives you a sense of how spacious and exclusive it is.

Here’s how Four Seasons’ president of hotel operations describes the Four Seasons private jet experience:

“The Four Seasons Private Jet experience defines modern luxury air travel, encouraging meaningful connections between people and places while delivering a seamless and highly personalised journey. 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.”

How much do Four Seasons private jet trips cost?

The cost of Four Seasons private jet journeys varies based on the exact trip. Most trips are somewhere around two to three weeks, and cost around $150,000-200,000 per person per journey, based on double occupancy. Note that:

  • Single guests are allowed as well, though there’s a supplement, typically around 10% of the journey cost
  • Children are allowed on most journeys, and get slightly discounted pricing (though it’s only marginally cheaper than for an adult)

Where do Four Seasons private jet journeys go?

Four Seasons generally publishes private jet journeys up to two years in advance. Most trips last somewhere around two to three weeks. Some are quite focused on certain regions, while others are truly global.

As mentioned above, the Four Seasons private jet flies exclusively during the day, generally aiming to arrive at the destination mid-afternoon. Overnight accommodation is generally at Four Seasons, though in places where Four Seasons doesn’t have properties, you instead stay at another five star hotel.

Currently, Four Seasons has private jet journeys on sale all the way through 2026, and you can find all the journeys here. Just as an example, the Asia Unveiled journey in early 2026 (January 14-29, 2026), visits seven destinations in 16 days. This trip starts in Tokyo, and then stops in Bali, Angkor Wat, Hoi An, Bhutan, the Maldives, and finally ends in Bangkok. The cost is $159,000 per person.

What’s included with Four Seasons private jet journeys?

Obviously the price tag for the Four Seasons private jet is steep, but fortunately a lot comes included. All Four Seasons private jet experiences include the following:

  • All meals, including on the ground and in the air
  • All beverages on the jet, as well as beverages with meals on the ground
  • Many tours, which are generally in groups of six to eight people
  • The highest category deluxe rooms at each hotel, with the option to further upgrade at a cost
  • Being accompanied by a Four Seasons concierge, journey manager, assistant journey manager, private chef, physician, and a 14-person cabin and flight crew, including three pilots
  • Emergency medical assistance, including coverage for up to $100,000 in medical evacuation and coverage for up to $50,000 in medical expenses for covered reasons

What’s not included with Four Seasons private jet?

  • Airfare to & from your home airport
  • Passport and visa fees
  • Personal expenses such as laundry and telephone charges, optional activities, spa services, private cars and drivers, and liquor and snacks consumed outside of the private jet and regular daily meals

What’s the best way to book the Four Seasons private jet?

If you’re interested in booking the Four Seasons private jet, you can of course book directly, by calling or emailing Four Seasons. Alternatively you can also book through a travel advisor, and ideally an experienced one who is a Four Seasons Preferred Partner agent.

Booking this journey through a travel advisor won’t cost you anything extra, and it will hopefully get you more personalized service, as well as extra perks beyond what you can get directly. I know Ford would be more than happy to help, and he can be reached at [email protected].

My take on the Four Seasons private jet

I have a few general thoughts about the Four Seasons private jet concept, in no particular order:

  • This is obviously targeted at ridiculously wealthy people who are willing to drop $300K+ on a trip (either as a once-in-a-lifetime experience, or as an ongoing thing)
  • Four Seasons private jet journeys have been extremely popular, and often sell out a year in advance; clearly there’s a market for this, even at this cost
  • This isn’t ideal for someone who is an independent traveler, and who enjoys planning their own journey and dealing with the complexities of international travel
  • This is ideal for those who love traveling to cool places but don’t enjoy the complexities of planning
  • I have to give Four Seasons credit for how well they craft these itineraries, because you wouldn’t be able to visit such off-the-beaten-track places so easily on your own, like hopping from Easter Island to Bora Bora to the Great Barrier Reef
  • I would imagine that some people view this trip as a great networking opportunity

Bottom line

The Four Seasons private jet sure is an intriguing concept. Four Seasons plans some amazing journeys that last a few weeks, and you get to travel around the world on a 48-seat Airbus A321LR. It goes without saying that this isn’t for everyone, both in terms of budget and in terms of travel style.

If money is no object, you want to visit some pretty awesome places, and you want all the details handled for you, I can’t think of a better way to travel than this. But if you don’t have tens of millions of dollars and/or are more of an independent traveler, fortunately there are plenty of other great experiences to be had.

What do you make of the Four Seasons private jet concept? If money were no object, would you book a trip like this, or would you rather plan it independently?
