Dubai-based carrier Emirates has launched a luxury private jet service that could be described as flying hotel. The specs are impressive and nothing less than what would be expected of a service created to cater to the world’s obscenely wealthy.
The reconfigured Airbus A319 includes, for instance, 10 private suites that slide fully shut, fully lie-flat beds and 32-inch flat screen TVs.
A large shower and spa features heated floors, marble accents, all-natural skincare products and luxury toiletries from Bulgari.
The main salon can be configured to guests’ needs, be it as a business center for videoconferencing and high-powered meetings, or as a comfortable living space courtesy of the mechanically-activated table, two 42-inch LCD screens, and 2 sofas.
Other amenities include 1,500 channels of on-demand entertainment, high-speed internet and mobile phone connectivity, and an in-flight menu that offers guests a fine dining experience at up to 35,000 feet in the air.
The luxury jet can accommodate up to 19 guests. The private charter service flies to most locations worldwide, and extends beyond the carrier’s network.
The launch of a private jet service comes in response to increasing demand from markets in the Middle East, Europe, India, Russia and China, says the carrier.
