Shane O’Hare, President & CEO of Royal Jet and Geoffrey Kent, Founder and CEO of Abercrombie & Kent (A&K) officially launched their partnership and the first luxury experience “Regal Rajasthan with Royal Jet and British Polo Day”, which is now available to guests looking for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The partnership brings together Royal Jet, the international luxury flight services company chaired by His Excellency Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan and A&K, the world’s foremost luxury travel company for private travel.
The inaugural journey to Rajasthan, India will take place from 11th to 17th December 2014 and is limited to an exclusive group of 18 privileged guests who will experience luxury worthy of a Maharaja throughout the seven days. This incredible journey begins at 190,000 AED per person, based on two sharing, with 50,000 AED single occupancy supplement.
Guests will board one of Royal Jet’s fleet of Boeing Business Jets (BBJ’s), which offers the epitome of luxury travel, at Royal Jet’s exclusive VIP terminal at Abu Dhabi International Airport and landing in Jaipur in the heart of Rajasthan.
After arriving in the west of the country, the group will visit Amber Fort, enjoy an elephant safari or play elephant polo before jetting onto Agra, home to the iconic Taj Mahal, where they will enjoy a private viewing of this iconic Indian masterpiece before the crowds arrive. Following this, the group will fly with Royal Jet onto Jodhpur – home of polo – to watch teams from the British Army take on the President’s Bodyguard during the spectacular annual British Polo Day hosted by His Highness Gaj Singh 11, the Maharajah of Marawar-Jodhpur.
Following a night in the stunning Umaid Bahawan Palace, guests will be offered an exclusive opportunity to explore Jodhpur with a private guide before flying with Royal Jet onto Udaipur where they will enjoy dinner on the shimmering Lake Pichola and a private tour of the largest palace complex in Rajasthan. This exceptional journey will conclude with dinner and entertainment at
Mewar Palace, a spectacular venue that offers breath-taking views of the 500 year City Palace, the Pichola Lake and the Monsoon Palace
Shane O’Hare, President & CEO of Royal Jet said, “As the world’s leading private jet operator, our partnership with A&K is bringing together the foremost luxury brands in the aviation and hospitality sectors. Our one-of-a-kind journey offers the ultimate in luxury air travel and the magnificence of India’s royal heritage and history. It promises to bring a truly impressive, unforgettable and royal experience for our guests. Every aspect of the journey has been planned meticulously with today’s high-end, discerning traveller in mind and with limited availability, we encourage people to not let this exceptionally, luxurious air travel and holiday experience pass by.”
Throughout the journey, Royal Jet’s BBJ, which delivers luxury in the skies, will be complemented by A&K’s on-ground expertise that includes exclusive insider access opportunities, unrivalled insight from A&K’s guides, and the finest in accommodation, dining and entertainment.
Geoffrey Kent, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Abercrombie & Kent Group added: “This opportunity is simply fantastic. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience Private Jets, Palaces and Polo in India in the most exquisite manner. A&K pioneered the concept of luxury travel over five decades ago, and we do it better than anybody else. Partnering with Royal Jet, the world’s leading private jet operator, is a natural progression and will deliver the best of everything at each step of the journey. These days, the term luxury tends to be overused and is danger of being hackneyed, but believe me, this is the real thing, the absolute epitome of luxury. This exclusive private jet journey goes the last mile in each and every detail.”
