“Crystal AirCruises will push the boundaries of what luxury travelers
have traditionally thought possible within one vacation experience, as
our guests will be able to span the globe in the course of a few weeks
without sacrificing the ease and stylish comfort they expect from a
Crystal vacation,” says Crystal CEO and president, Edie
. “For instance, wine lovers need not choose just one
exceptional winegrowing region, but can immerse themselves in several of
the most acclaimed areas with the benefit of our luxury aircraft to
whisk them easily to the next destination. Likewise, travelers need not
limit their exploration of the world’s ancient icons due to distance, as
Crystal AirCruises provides the ability to contextualize the history and
significance of many in one vacation.”

Each innovative Crystal AirCruises itinerary is based on four curated
all-inclusive destination experiences from which guests can choose, as
well as mix and match to create their ideal vacation: “Exhilarating
Adventures,” “Personal Connections,” “Cultural Discoveries,” and
“Tantalizing Gastronomy.” For the ultimate custom Crystal AirCruises
voyage, Crystal’s Designed by You option offers travelers the
services of the Crystal AirCruises Director, the expert concierge who
hosts the entire AirCruise and land experience, attending to guests’
individual needs and wishes throughout. Designed by You goes
beyond the extensive selection of curated experiences, allowing guests
to create unstructured programs customized to their wishes.

The luxuriously designed aircraft is larger and newer than any global
jet tour travel option, appointed with features rarely found in even the
most luxurious private jets. The Crystal Exclusive Class seats are
designed for maximum personal space and ergonomic comfort, and convert
to 180-degree lie-flat beds. The expansive social lounge with stand-up
bar and dedicated table seating fosters friendly camaraderie among
luxury travelers. Cuisine will be prepared by a dedicated executive chef
in two state-of-the-art galleys and paired with an elegant premium wine

Guests will also enjoy comforts and conveniences including Bose®
Noise Cancelling headphones, Apple® iPads, complimentary
global WiFi, interactive TVs with on-demand programming and music
library, individual USB ports and power outlets, and a live
cockpit-to-ground listening channel. Additionally, spacious lavatories
appointed with luxury amenities offer more than the comforts of home
during the global journeys.
