REMOTE Lands and Amanresorts have teamed up to create a private jet tour across Asia which takes in eight destinations across four Asian countries.
The 18-day sky tour, which is limited to 18 travellers each willing to pay US$49,950 for the experience, runs from October 4 to 21 and will include stays in Amanresorts in Beijing and Hangzhou in China, Thimpu and Paro in Bhutan, Rajasthan and Ranthambore in India, and Galle and Tangalle in Sri Lanka.
Pointing to the programme’s unique aspects, Tim Russell, marketing manager at the luxury travel specialist, said: "(Clients visit) four countries in 18 days…(They travel) 100 per cent by private jet, (stay) 100 per cent at Amanresorts with a special farewell dinner in each resort, and it's limited to just 18 people. It also includes special access to off-limits areas of Beijing’s Forbidden City as well as private tours in each destination."
While the US is the key source market for the tour, Remote Lands is also targeting potential clients in Asia-Pacific, notably Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore, and is looking to sell the product direct to customers and through agencies on a first-come-first-served basis.
