Leading private tour operator TCS World Travel has unveiled its 2020 private jet expedition schedule of global and regional journeys.
The all-inclusive itineraries offer guests the chance to travel around the world, across a continent or deep-dive into a country or region - all from the comfort of a customised aircraft with flatbed or business-class seats.
On the menu for 2020 is natural wonders, iconic landmarks and exclusive experiences, ranging from an around the world trip taking in Machu Picchu, the Taj Mahal and Angkor Wat, and a wine and wildlife tour of Southern Africa.
Next year will also play host to 'first chance' destinations, with travellers able to gain access to unique and hard-to-reach UNESCO World Heritage sites such as Australia’s Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and Brazil’s Fernando de Noronha Marine National Park.
Holidaymakers will also get the chance to be introduced to emerging regions like Armenia, Mozambique and the Faroe Islands, as well as experience lesser known parts of familiar destinations such as Morocco and Iceland.
But updated destinations aren’t the only exciting addition to TCS’ roster; the 2020 schedule will also see a new private jet added into guests’ options.
Joining its custom Boeing 757 private jets - reconfigured with 50 or 76 seats - the award- winning company will also be offering its 2020 regional itineraries on an Airbus A318-100 private jet.
With flatbed seating for 28 guests, the jet will allow guests to travel longer distances while still navigating remote destinations.
“Our 2020 schedule reflects our legacy of providing unparalleled, enriching experiences with exceptional service, as well as offering our guests the access they wouldn’t get on their own and connecting them with people, cultures and experiences,” said TCS World Travel President Shelley Cline.
“These are our guiding principles when we develop new journeys and expand our portfolio of offerings, especially as we continue to grow and maintain our position as a leader in the space.”
