My Favourite Aircraft and Ideal Destinations
Heavy Jet (Long Haul) = Gulfstream G-650
The G-650 is one my preferred long-haul aircraft & is certainly one of the World’s most renowned! Along with its high-end avionics, it boasts an amazing safety record & the range of this aircraft is incredible, flying up to 7,500 NM! The spacious interior provides supreme comfort & innovation with up to four living areas. Another reason this is one of my favourite aircraft is definitely the huge windows – as a person who loves flying, the large windows allow natural daylight to flow into the cabin and along with the low cabin pressure, it allows the passengers to feel fully refreshed upon arrival at their destination. The aircraft also comes with fantastic on-board entertainment services such as high-speed Wi-Fi, state of the art audio & video equipment. It is also one of the most fuel-efficient aircraft in its category.
From London, my favourite destination must be New York – the City that never sleeps! It is one of the most classic city pairings in the world of aviation & was also a route that the Concorde used to fly. There is nothing like a Christmas shopping trip to New York City and what better way to get there than by flying on a G-650!
Medium Sized Jet (Short Haul) = Citation XLS
The Citation XLS is one of the best-selling jets in its category. With room for up to 8 passengers, the spacious interior allows passengers to stand up and move around the cabin with ease. The VIP seat configurations come with a well-positioned work surface so passengers can get their work done whilst enroute to meetings to maximize productivity. The aircraft is also ideal for family trips, providing amazing luggage capacity for those all-important skiing or golfing trips. It has a fantastic safety record.
Where would I go? My favourite destination in Europe must be Vienna. It is just a two hour flight from London and come winter or summer, Vienna never disappoints! I have spent a lot of time there & one of the must-see things has to be the Christmas markets, especially the one at the Rathausplatz. The City has amazing architecture, the cuisine is lovely and the nightlife is pretty good too! In the winter months, it is very easy to go by train to some of the best skiing resorts in the world. In the summer, be sure to hang out at the Danube river & check out some of the vineyards that are just a train ride away.
