Living Luxe: Private Jets for Families

Live the Luxe Life with the New "First Class" - Private Jets!

Thinking of skipping the north’s colorful foliage for some island hopping this fall? We see no problem with that… in fact, you might want to consider a new mode of transportation for your ultra-luxe lifestyle. Private jets are the new first class when it comes to air travel — and they’re no longer for boardroom bores only.

Having grown 300 percent in the last five years, private jets are quickly becoming a leisure travel option for everyone — not just the rich or royal (and those who are lucky enough to be both.) This past year has shown an increase in family usage of jets, according to Marquis Jet, provider of the Marquis Jet Card that offers cardholders the convenience of private travel, flexible schedules, added comfort and totally secure privacy.

The Marquis Jet Card allows the entire family to access the stellar quality and selection of NetJets’, the gold standard in private aviation, 25-hours at a time for one payment.  From the immediate family of four to the extended family of eight or more, a jet card makes going to Grandma’s house (or traveling to Cabo with Grandma) a vacation unto itself. 

It's no secret that family vacations have long tested one's organization skills. Today, as family vacations often ential bringing along nannies, iPods, video games, sports equipment, diapers, family pets, etc., the variables often balloon to extremes and lead to confusion and stress. The Marquis program allows families to travel in comfort, providing enough space to transport your belongings and even furry, four-legged family members — a priceless luxury when faced with thoughts of an air bus.

If dollar signs are “cha-chinging” over your head right now, consider this: Marquis Jet has seen a surge in the joint purchase of a card by families. So next time you’re traveling with the in-laws, see if they’d fancy this uber elite method of travel. Splitting the dime makes for a more affordable option. It’s also possible to jointly purchase a card and then divide up air time on an individual basis amongst two families. Either way sounds like a happy ending to us.

So what are the hottest destinations to fly off in a private jet?  Based on flights for the 2006 summer season Marquis Jet reports the following as this summer’s top hot spots:

1. Nantucket , MA
2. Martha’s Vineyard , MA
3. Las Vegas , NV
4. Sea Island , GA
5. Charleston , SC
6. Hamptons , NY
7. Santa Barbara/Montecito, CA
8. Aspen/Vail, CO
9. Sun Valley , ID
10. Jackson , WY
