A trip around the world no longer means taking to the sea.
With the introduction of its private jet at the beginning of the year, the Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts group now offers a new type of travel experience.
Here's a peek inside this luxury plane.
Will luxury hotel groups soon no longer be content with their prestigious establishments? The answer is no for the Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts group, which have come up with a new way to travel around the world.
In a private jet.
The black Four Seasons Private Jet isn't exactly inconspicuous, neither on the ground nor in the air. This Boeing 757 with Rolls Royce engines has been luxuriously customised by a host of designers. The reclining white leather seats were handcrafted by Italian VIP aircraft seating manufacturer Iacobucci.
The blankets, in case any of the 52 passengers get chilly, are made from soft Mongolian cashmere and were commissioned exclusively for the plane.

The ten-strong crew includes an executive chef, a sous chef, a Four Seasons concierge and a global guest services manager.
"Our aim is to recreate the hotel experience on the Four Seasons Private Jet, which means creating innovative meals using fresh ingredients, served on the finest tableware and linens, all with impeccable Four Seasons service. The only real difference is that occasionally we have to do a little juggling when there's turbulence," says the airline's chef Kerry Sear.
"The launch of the hotel industry's first fully branded private jet earlier this year was in response to the growing demand among modern luxury travellers for a fully immersive Four Seasons experience both in the air and on the ground," says Christopher W. Norton, executive vice president, global product and operations at Four Seasons.
