Though admittedly splendid, Emirates A380 and Boeing 777 aircraft aren’t functional for those who prefer or have to fly private. Enter the Airbus A319 ACJ Executive Jet that seamlessly caters to the uncrowned royalty of the world. Ironically, several high-net-worth individuals, celebrities, and organizations cannot afford to fly economy but always want to fly Emirates for exceptional service. The Executive A319ACJ can fly billionaires and their teams (19 guests in all) in the lap of luxury.
Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President for Planning, Aeropolitical & Industry Affairs, commented, “We have seen an increasing demand in the private travel segment, especially in the Middle East and Europe as well as in markets such as India, Russia, and China, we are looking to tap into this niche market with the high quality of service and attention to detail.” The private jet has the range to fly within 8 hours distance of any airport and can reach all continents with one stop to the Americas. Let’s explore what marvels the Emirates Executive jet contains-
Plush private suites –
The interior of the Emirates Executive A319 aircraft can be completely customized to suit your travel requirements. The onboard suites impress first with scale (the private suites are more extensive than those in Emirates premium First Class cabins) and then with privacy.
The doors slide to enclose passengers in their cozy cocoon, including flat-bed seats, a visitor’s chair, and ambient lighting.
Entertainment and respite are taken care of by including a well-stocked mini-bar and a personal 32-inch screen for in-flight entertainment. From personal service to nestling on a large bed of feather pillows, the experience is indeed unmatched.
Rejuvenating onboard Shower spa –
Flying private also entails rejuvenating mid-flight in the luxury Shower Spa and separate powder room. Make the most of your leisurely time 40,000 feet in the air by unwinding in a spa donning classic walnut and marble, and treat yourself to the finest linens; allow your fast-paced life to slow down as you indulge yourself in a range of mesmerizing Sodashi luxury spa products.
Dining in the stars-
Emirates master chefs make the journey equal parts lip-smacking and luxurious with sumptuous meals, delicious light snacks, a gourmet buffet when traveling with a large party, afternoon tea with hors d’oeuvres, and the most tantalizing cocktails and canapés.
Like a five-star hotel room, a dedicated lounge area is where conversations, discussions, or meals take place at your discretion. The expansive space can be occupied as a private restaurant, board room, or space where you can hang your legs and unwind with friends.
Business uninterrupted –
For billionaires, businesses and time dont go hand-in-hand. Emirates Airbus A319 ACJ Executive Jet makes your crazy schedule manageable, allowing you to conduct business globally with the terrific trio of convenience, luxury, and top-notch services. You can have your team onboard and conduct business as usual, albeit 40,000 feet in the sky. One may be required in Dubai for breakfast and evening cocktails in Europe. To conduct business en route, a conference table can be arranged with the latest technology at your disposal.
Passengers are gifted high-speed internet and mobile phone connectivity throughout the flight. Entertaining guests is easy as the private office doubles up as a lounge to socialize over drinks and canapés. Regarding overnight business trips, 15 guests can sleep in suites while the rest snooze on five converted beds in the lounge.
While the pricing for the Emirates Executive jet differs on many factors such as the route, number of passengers and so forth, you can expect to shell out around $15,000 to $20,000 per hour.
