First Look: Inside the New Four Seasons Private Jet Experience
While most people think of hotels and resorts when they hear the name Four Seasons, the company has revolutionized the industry by becoming the first to add a private jet to its luxury experience.
According to Four Seasons, the focus from designers was to develop a plane that lives up to the high luxury standards of the hotel chain, and there is no doubt that the improvements made to the aircraft have helped the company accomplish its goals.
The upgrades start with the interior of the plane. The changes include hand-crafted leather flatbed seats, fine tableware and Mongolian cashmere blankets, and all amenities have been added with the hopes of giving passengers a taste of luxury in the air.
As for the exterior of the plane, the entire aircraft has been painted with a black high-gloss finish that will help protect it from weather and the environment. Add in the iconic Four Seasons logo, and this plane is as beautiful on the outside as it is on the inside.

Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts vice president of design, Dana Kalczak, gave some insights as to what the company is hoping to accomplish with the addition of the luxury jet.
“In our hotels, spaces are conceived as settings for great experiences. The same is true for the Four Seasons Private Jet," Kalczak said. "Along with the core objectives of comfort and functionality – and adherence to strict aircraft safety standards – we wanted to create an exceptionally luxurious ambiance, and Champagne and caviar became our inspiration.”
Four Seasons is also inviting guests to participate in all encompassing journeys that utilize the private jet as part of the adventure. The excursions include multiple flights on the private jet, planned excursions, all meals and beverages and stays at Four Seasons hotels and resorts around the world.
Add in the fact that the entire plane and its crew members — ten Four Seasons-trained employees including an executive chef, a sous chef and more — may also be chartered, and the Four Seasons company has taken the hotel game to the next level.
