Toulouse, France - Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has chosen the Airbus A321LR to offer its customers private luxury flights. The aircraft will enter into service with Four Seasons in 2021.
Airbus A321LR is the long-range version of the A320neo family. The aircraft is more efficient than the previous generation single -aisles thanks to its new engines and Sharklets and has an extended range by means of extra fuel tanks installed in the cargo section.
These features enable the Airbus A321LR to fly long-distance routes without stopovers.
“The Four Seasons Private Jet experience defines modern luxury aviation, encouraging meaningful connections between people and places while delivering a seamless and highly personalized journey,” said Christian Clerc, President of Worldwide Hotel Operations at Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.
“Building on the tremendous success of our Private Jet program to date, with consistent sell outs, waitlists, and near perfect guest satisfaction rates, our drive to continuously innovate and push the conventional limits of travel has led to this new opportunity to experience Four Seasons like never before,” Clerc added.
“With the widest and tallest cabins of any aircraft in their class, Airbus corporate jets are wonderfully well suited to an aircruising role, helping to make journeys memorably enjoyable parts of exclusive travel experiences,” said ACJ President Benoit Defforge.
Four Seasons’ A321LR cabin is configured to reflect the stylish elegance of Four Seasons hotels. According to ACJ Head of Creative Design Sylvain Mariat, the aircraft is designed to deliver unprecedented space for socializing and enjoyment.
Mariat worked with Four Seasons while creating the luxury cabin of the aircraft. It features a roomy lounge, 54 lie-flat seats with face-to-face Ottomans, and two large washrooms.
Airbus corporate jet orders now represent 12 aircraft in total.
