Top five accessories for men to take on a private jet
The modern man is spoilt for choice when it comes to travel accessories. The latest wave of state-of-the-art travel tech means suitcases now have functionality to be GPS-trackable, and some can even display your boarding pass on a built-in digital display. On the other side of the spectrum, there’s been a harkening back to an era of old-school sophistication, with accessories that bring to mind the phrase ‘shaken not stirred’. But what does the man who flies by private jet want most? From luxury leather travel accessories to the latest tech to take on-board, these are the top five gadgets and luxury accessories to take with you on a private jet charter.
1. Rimowa Topas Stealth Multiwheel® Electronic Tag
We couldn't have a top five without including the most important travel accessory of all – the suitcase. Rimowa has been making suitcases since 1898 and is now an industry leader in technology and cutting-edge design. They have created the first fully-integrated digital suitcase that can display a digital boarding pass and allows owners to check in for scheduled airline flights using an app, eliminating the need for a paper boarding pass. You don’t need a boarding pass for private jet charter, but this is still a super-useful feature to have. The aluminium shell and two TSA combination locks provide unparalleled protection and security while in transit. The Rimowa gourmet range also features a Champagne box and a wine case for all your on-board essentials!
2. Raden A28 Check Suitcase
Another leading luggage brand to look out for is Raden, whose suitcases feature a built-in charger, with a 7,800mAh battery for four full phone charges and two USB ports for dual device charging. GPS technology with proximity sensors and Bluetooth technology mean that you can easily locate your suitcase when you need to. The Raden A28 Check suitcase can withstand even the roughest of turbulence and is made from super lightweight polycarbonate – pair it with the Raden app for the latest in travel tech.
3. Aspinal of London Luxury Backgammon or Poker Set
There’s no better way to make the most of your flight than to enjoy a game of backgammon with friends or colleagues. This luxury set from Aspinal of London is made from Italian calf leather and has a handmade wooden frame. If poker is more up your street, the 600-chip poker set is sure to set the stakes high. With some private jets featuring Wi-Fi it can be tempting to plug in and spend the flight playing computer games, but sometimes it can feel good to disconnect from tech for a while. Make your private jet charter the social event to remember, and host a poker game on-board whilst enjoying an Old Fashioned or two.
4. Solloshi Hyperion Titanium Travel Case Diamond Edition
This is one for any cigar aficionados out there, because what could be more indulgent that enjoying a cigar at 41,000 ft? Depending on the aircraft in question, smoking on board a private jet can be permitted at the aircraft owner's discretion. The cigar-lover’s ultimate accessory, the Hyperion Titanium Travel Case by Solloshi is made from certified Grade 5 titanium and can fit three large cigars up to 210mm in length. Featuring an integrated humidifier, cigars are kept at optimal humidity so that they stay in tip-top condition. Only 168 limited edition cases were made by Solloshi, making this a true collector's item.
5. Smythson Mara Currency Case
Be ready from the moment you step off of the plane. This Smythson currency case not only looks sharp in crocodile print calf leather, it features four color-coded zip pockets to store four types of currency. Stay organized and board your jet in style with the matching Mara passport holder.
