Crystal Cruises has shed light on the newest addition to its fleet – a Bombardier Global Express XRS jet, which will enter service for the company on April 3, 2016.
The lavishly outfitted jet, designed to accommodate just 12 lucky guests in luxury and comfort, will complement any Crystal Cruises itinerary, offering guests the option to fly privately on their Crystal vacation.
Enthusing on the new aircraft was president and CEO, Crystal Cruises, Edie Rodriguez: “Crystal Luxury Air will open tremendous possibilities for luxury travellers seeking the next level of ease and exclusivity during their journeys. And in the spirit of all things Crystal, and ensuring we offer customisation to our guests, Crystal Luxury Air allows our travel agent partners and guests the ability to truly customise their vacation experiences to privately fly to combine our cruise, yacht, river, residence, and air experiences.”
The jet has been extensively refitted with three capacious cabins. The forward cabin boasts four executive wide club seats with foldout tables for dining or meeting; the mid cabin is configured for conferences, with seating for five and a workstation and cabinet; and the aft cabin offers a three-person divan that can be transformed into a large bed.
Technical amenities include a wide range of electronic video supplies and laptop imagery on all cabin monitors, XM Radio, surround sound, a 31.5 inch LCD TV, high-speed Internet and in-flight phone service.
Chartered flights aboard Crystal Cruises’ Global Express jet are now available for booking and will fly guests virtually anywhere in the world, with a max flight range at just under 12 hours per leg.
The cruise specialist will also add a Boeing 777 to its growing fleet in 2017 and 787 Dreamliner in 2018.
