Chartering for Valentine’s Day
It’s Valentine’s Day, and perhaps you’re fed up of the same old chocolates and flowers, jewelry and dinner and want to do something really special, why not charter a private jet and treat that special someone to a romantic getaway.
When it comes to romantic getaways, you can choose to stay stateside, or head somewhere a little more exotic, we’ve taken a look at some of the most popular spots to give you some inspiration this Valentine’s Day.
Staying stateside, Charleston is the ideal destination for a romantic break. With cobblestone streets, a beautiful harbor area and antebellum houses, it has old-fashioned Southern charm by the bucket load. That said, there’s a hip and happening undercurrent to the city, with trendy boutiques and innovative fine-dining eateries popping up along the oak-lined streets. If you’re an active couple, why not hire a kayak and paddle out to Shem Creek in search of dolphins, or, if that sounds like a bit too much effort on your holiday, head to The Spa at the Belmond Charleston Place for an indulgent treatment. Fly from New York to Charleston in a Learjet 35 with space for up to 6 passengers, for approx. $10,500 or from Los Angeles in a Challenger 300 with space for up to 9 passengers, for approx. $45,500.
Paris is often cited as the most romantic place on earth, and whilst any trip to Europe is bound to impress, why not go the extra mile and jet off to Paris with your significant other. Paris is picturesque, with the iconic Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, and Notre Dame all providing the perfect backdrop for a romantic break away. Stroll along the canal arm in arm, spotting all the love locks on the bridges, sip coffee in one of the many cafés or perhaps take a stroll through the Louvre or Musée d’Orsay before enjoying a romantic dinner for two in the Michelin-starred Septime or the L’Astrance. Fly from New York to Paris in a Gulfstream G-V with space for up to 16 passengers, for approx. $85,000 or from Los Angeles in a Global Express with space for up to 13 passengers, for approx. $165,000.
If you’re really feeling the urge to impress, head to Bora Bora and treat your other half to one of the most paradisaical places on earth. Crystal clear waters, powder soft beaches and wonderful sunshine ensure you can relax and spend some real quality time together, away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. If you can bear to leave the beach, try your hand at snorkeling, diving or enjoy a glass bottom boat trip to see the incredible breadth of sea life that call this area home. Fly from New York to Bora Bora in a Falcon 7X with space for up to 8 passengers for approx. $245,100 or from Los Angeles in a Gulfstream G-IVSP with space for up to 12 passengers for approx. $133,400.
