The partnership will offer the finest in high end, once-in-a-lifetime travel for private groups of discerning travellers.
Royal Jet’s fleet of Boeing Business Jets (BBJ’s) deliver luxury in the skies offering unprecedented travel experiences, accompanied by state-of-the art onboard facilities. Meanwhile on the ground, A&K will ensure exclusive insider access opportunities; unrivalled insight from A&K’s guides; and the finest in accommodation, dining and entertainment.

Limited to an exclusive group of 18 privileged guests, Royal Jet’s BBJ will land in Jaipur in the heart of Rajasthan. Guests will indulge in luxury worthy of a Maharaja and visit Amber Fort, enjoy an elephant safari or play elephant polo before jetting onto Agra, home to the iconic Taj Mahal.
An exclusive tour of the splendid Taj Mahal will allow guests a private viewing of this world wonder before the crowds arrive. Following this, the group will fly onto Jodhpur, home of polo, to enjoy spectacular polo at British Polo Day hosted by His Highness Gaj Singh 11, the Maharajah of Marawar- Jodhpur.
The following day, guests will explore Jodhpur with a private guide before flying on to Udaipur. Highlights at Udaipur include dinner on the shimmering Lake Pichola, and a private tour of the largest palace complex in Rajasthan. A fitting finale will be dinner and entertainment at Mewar
Palace, a spectacular venue that offers breathtaking views of the 500 year City Palace, the Pichola Lake and the Monsoon Palace.
