Asia’s first private jet tour sells for $50k each

Tour visits eight destinations in four Asian countries

Remote Lands and Amanresorts have teamed up to create what is billed as the first 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 $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.

Clients will travel 100% by private jet and stay 100% at Amanresorts, with a special farewell dinner in each resort. The trip also includes special access to off-limits areas of Beijing’s Forbidden City as well as private tours in each destination.

The US is the key source market for the tour, but Remote Lands is also targeting potential clients in Asia Pacific and elsewhere.
