Abercrombie & Kent was a private jet pioneer, introducing the first Royal Air Tour in 1989. Today it is one of the most experienced companies in the private jet business, having designed and operated dozens of programs on a variety of luxury aircraft to destinations all over the world, as well as custom-designed jet itineraries for families and private groups.
Within Cultural Treasures you’ll discover timeless destinations as Kyoto, Kathmandu and Abu Dhabi, where enduring history blends seamlessly with a bustling modern culture.
Then back in time with a traditional Japanese tea ceremony and a private geisha performance; then get a taste of the nomadic life in Mongolia’s GobiDesert.
Nepal offers incomparable views of Mount Everest by helicopter, while Bhutan affords a glimpse into a fiercely-protected traditional culture, as well as an opportunity to make the pilgrimage to Tiger’s Nest Monastery. After stopping in Agra for a royal banquet and a sunrise visit to the Taj Mahal, guests jet off to Abu Dhabi, a city transformed, in contrast to the Bedouin encampments found in the otherworldly desert of Wadi Rum and the Treasury of Petra.
The journey ends with a taste of Sicilian dolce vita inTaormina, where guests can explore picturesque villages from a unique perspective behind the wheel of a vintage Italian sports car.
Privileged Access & Personalized Experiences
Private jet travel with Abercrombie & Kent is filled with invitation-only events, including a tshechu ceremony, a longstanding Bhutanese tradition with masked dancers; a Naadam Games tournament in Mongolia; and an exclusive Sicilian welcome party styled after a traditional wedding, with celebratory dancing, music and food –arranged exclusively for A&K guests.
Thoughtful curation makes it possible for guests to personalize their experience with a choice of Design Your Day options, from relaxing spa treatments to active outdoor excursions. In Kyoto, they may meet a master swordsman for a hands-on Samurai experience; shop for modern and traditional treasures with a local guide; enjoy a sake tasting in the Fushimi Sake District; or learn the traditional ai-zome indigo dyeing process from a famous artisan.
Accommodations reflect the distinctive character of each destination and offer authentic hospitality. These highlights include a comfortable ger camp in Mongolia, exclusively reserved for A&K; Dwarika’s in Kathmandu, recognized by UNESCO for its extraordinary native woodwork; and accommodations just steps from the iconic archaeological site of Petra.
Fine Dining & Entertainment
Meals are more than just a chance to dine at the end of the day – they are a feast for the senses, with local entertainment and stunning natural backdrops. Dine in a 17th-century Japanese castle, with a welcome by armored samurai warriors; sample the flavors of India at a Mughal-themed banquet in Agra; and experience the romance of the desert with a candlelit feast in Siq el-Barid (“Little Petra”).
Luxury in the Air
Travelling by private jet allows guests to experience far more than on a conventional itinerary with greater comfort and ease.
Onboard A&K’s privately-chartered Boeing 757-200ER are 50 custom-designed Italian leather seats, a fully stocked open bar featuring top-shelf wine and spirits, in addition to first-class meal service with personalized espresso drinks.
