The inaugural arrival of the hospitality industry’s first fully branded private jet in Dubai comes as part of the Four Seasons Private Jet Cultural Escape itinerary, exploring cultures around the world.

The North American hotel operator said in statement that the jet will fly in from Moscow. Guests will then spend a three-day stopover in Dubai before continuing their journey in the Seychelles, Serengeti and Florence, before returning to London to complete the 19-day journey.
