Destinations Only Accessible Via Private Jet

One of the fundamental perks of private aviation is the ability to easily reach destinations that cannot be accessed by commercial flight, saving precious time— for more R&R.

Simply put, flying private allows you to make the most out of your time away. With direct access to many more airports (5,000+ in the United States alone) you’ll arrive closest to your destination, in the shortest amount of time. Read on for our client’s favorite destinations that can only be reached (direct) by a private jet:

Explora Patagonia, Chile​

Deep in the heart of the Torres del Paine National Park in the Chilean mountains of South America, Explora Patagonia is a favorite resort by outdoorsy travelers looking for a one-of-a-kind experience. With guided horseback excursions, a luxury spa and evening lecture series, this warm mountain lodge offers something interesting even for a well-seasoned traveler.

Chile continues to be one of the top destinations that attracts thousands of visitors each year and National Geographic selected Santiago, the capital city of Chile, as one of its “places you need to visit in 2018.” With scenic views of Lake Pehoe and incredible wildlife, you can access this exclusive location by flying a private charter to Teniente Julio Gallardo airport (PNT), where you can begin your truly unique Patagonian adventure.

Tiwi Islands, Australia​

Nicknamed the ‘Island of Smiles,’ the Tiwi Islands consist of two islands – Bathurst and Melville, and are famous for their traditional lifestyle and art. From schools decorated in art murals, to carved burial poles, the Tiwi people paint, weave, sculpt, carve and tell stories that give meaning to their traditional rituals. 

Part of the Northern Territory of Australia, the Tiwi Islands are 50 miles north of Darwin and are inhabited by approximately 3,000 Tiwi indigenous Australians. A visit to this community via private jet into the Bathurst Island airport (BRT) provides a truly immersive cultural experience full of indigenous history and art for travelers to discover.

Nimmo Bay, Canada

The Nimmo Bay Wilderness Resort in the British Columbia’s Great Bear Rainforest was chosen by National Geographic as one of its unique lodges of the world. Accessible only by helicopter, this remote resort is a beautiful secret retreat tucked away into the wilderness.

With scenic views of mountains, waterfalls and glaciers, the resort offers wildlife encounters and farm-to-table food and wine options. Depending on what you like, you can fly-fish, whale watch or spot a grizzly bear on a hiking trip just to name a few. Fly into the Port Hardy airport (YZT) and take a helicopter or a Spruse Goose floatplane to Nimmo Bay for an unforgettable journey.

Necker Island, British Virgin Islands

Famous for being owned by Sir Richard Branson, who is a founder of the Virgin Group, Necker Island is a 74-acre island nestled in the beautiful British Virgin Islands and is frequently visited by celebrities all around the world.

The island accommodates up to 34 people in the luxury resort and is accessible by flying a private jet into the Beef Island airport (EIS). Though severely damaged by the category 5 Hurricane Irma, Necker Island plans to re-open its resort in October 2018.

With time being one of the major reasons people book a private jet charter, the ability for you to see more on your trip is important and convenient. With so many remote places to discover, booking a private jet charter ensures that you have luxury both in-flight and at your destination.

Calivigny Island

The self titled “Luxury Private Island”, Calivigny Island is an exclusive guest island that is customised to your holiday. Arrive by private charter on this idyllic Caribbean destination, nothing is beyond the capabilities for their guests.

Alternatively, a fleet of boats are available to escort you on a sunset champagne cruise. Or for the adventurous holidaymakers, windsurfing, snorkelling, fishing and jet skiing are all included as standard offerings.

Andaz Peninsula Papagayo Resort, Costa Rica

If an exclusive or isolated island isn’t offering you the exclusive destination you want, then head to the sapphire waters of the Andaz Peninsula Papagayo Resort. Facing the Culebra Bay in the north of Costa Rica, this resort aims to capture the “Pura Vida” (pure life) philosophy of the region.

Within the hotel are 153 rooms and appointed guest room and suites with must have balconies to enjoy the magnificent views. The resort creates a comfortable, low pressure and relaxing environment with barrier free spaces and open air lounges. Though the resort is exclusive to guests, you won’t feel boxed in.

You can wander further afield to explore, but, even if you stay within the resort you will be treated to numerous dining establishments and activities. Latin American influenced open air kitchens foster a familial eating experience. You can drink cocktails perfected by mixologists, listen to live music in the Chao Pescao – which hosts local bands, or spend time in one of the nine spa rooms.

Buzios, Brazil

Situated on the eastern side of Brazil, adjacent to Rio De Janeiro, Buzios is a peninsula surrounded by 23 beaches. The perfect upscale resort for travellers flying directly by private plane to this niche spot that was once visited by the likes of Brigitte Bardot and President Kennedy – who have also been immortalised there as bronze statues.

Luxury holiday makers hoping to enjoy both relaxing days and exciting nightlife will certainly find that in Buzios. The stunning beaches offer plenty of relaxation places during the hot days. Once you’ve soaked up the sun, you can turn your attention to some of the night activities.

Little Dix Bay,Virgin Islands

Little Dix Bay is one of the spectacular coastal regions located on the north side of the Virgin Gorda Island. Only a short hop from a number of other Virgin Islands, Little Dix Bay is also only 29 minutes by private charter from Puerto Rico.
