Four Seasons has a new private jet – and it has the widest and tallest cabin in its class.
According to Bloomberg and Robb Report, Four Seasons will begin booking trips on its new aircraft in mid-2019. A luxury Airbus, the private jet will serve as transportation for 48 guests on vacations designed for the superrich. The Four Seasons is among other hospitality groups who have added luxury travel components to their arsenals, including the Ritz-Carlton.
The forthcoming 2021 model will include more spacious seating than the Four Seasons’ 2015 private jet does, in addition to an onboard cocktail lounge. The new jet comes with a $US10,000 price increase compared to the 2015 jet; packages now begin at $US147,000 per person.

The original Four Seasons private jet was unveiled in 2015.
The new Four Seasons private jet — an A321LR neo — is a luxury Airbus. Booking will begin in mid-2019 and the jet will take flight in early 2021.
The older model featured an all-white interior with orange accent pillows on 52 passenger seats.
The updated version comfortably seats 48 passengers and offers the widest and tallest cabins in its class.
While the old jet held four more passengers …
… the new jet features more space for fewer guests. According to Four Seasons, each seat comes with six-and-a-half feet of personal space. The jet’s seats are designed by Optimares.
The chairs and their accompanying ottomans are covered in Italian leather.
When extended, the chairs connect to the ottomans for spacious sleeping arrangements.
Each seat also comes with a personal iPad for use throughout the course of the trip. Depending on destination details, prices begin at $US147,000 per person for a 3-week vacation.
The newest feature on the jet is the lounge area, where a mixologist will craft custom drinks for passengers. In addition, the space will be used for cooking classes and wellness activities.
The new jet also features updated bathrooms, which are designed to look and feel like regular hotel restrooms. There are two bathrooms on the plane — along with one smaller crew bathroom — each with a full-length mirror and bench seating.
According to a Four Seasons representative, the jet vacations include a pre-set itinerary featuring stops at various hotel locations. With the launch of the 2021 jet, guests will be able to personalise their experience at the chosen locations with assistance from the jet’s concierge.
The 2015 jet has made three three-week trips each year since its launch. Four Seasons added that time between each trip varied from just two weeks to several months.
