Air Partner - 29 Jun 2015
Air Partner, a leading provider of air charter services to governments, corporates, tour operators, cruise lines and high net worth individuals, has been chosen by Celebrity Cruises to arrange all of the flights for its new Jet Set Sail offering.
Regularly voted one of the best cruise lines in the world, Celebrity Cruises is taking modern luxury to the next level with the launch of its Jet Set Sail package, which offers passengers the chance to fly VIP-style to and from their luxury cruise.
All flights will operate from Stansted Airport’s luxurious Inflite private terminal, with passengers also receiving complimentary parking at the terminal, access to the luxury departure lounge, super-fast boarding and disembarkation, gourmet on-board catering, a generous luggage allowance, transfers to and from the airport and cruise port, and priority embarkation at departure port. The proximity of the car park from the terminal, allows guests to drop off their car and pick them up with a 5 minute stroll of the terminal.
At present, this service is available for itineraries on the Celebrity Equinox ship, although with the expected success of the initiative Celebrity Cruises may look to roll it out to other ships in the future. Jet Set Sail will go on sale from 7 July 2015 for sailings from May 2016.
A launch event will also take place at Stansted on 21 July in order to showcase the private lounge to Celebrity Cruises key trade partners.
Alan Murray, Director of Inclusive Tour Programmes at Air Partner, said: “We are delighted to have been chosen as Celebrity’s aviation partner, and look forward to enabling their clients to fly, park, check-in, disembark and sail in style. Celebrity’s cruises are among the most luxurious in the world, making this a perfect fit for Air Partner; with over 50 years’ experience in the commercial and private jet sector, Celebrity Cruises guests can expect to enjoy flawless service and an unforgettable experience.”
Jo Rzymowska, UK and Ireland Managing Director, commented: “We are thrilled to be bringing this modern luxury proposition to our guests to ensure that their holiday experience is seamless from beginning to end. Guests have come to expect nothing but the best from our cruises and we have no doubt that Air Partner will enable us to meet their expectations of flying in style and sailing in modern luxury.”
