Top Autumn Destinations by Private Jet
Astonishing as it seems, with September almost upon us and the long warm sunny days slowly becoming a little shorter, cloudier, and cooler, its apparent that we are almost through the summer with Autumn only a few weeks away.
Traditionally, families and individuals take a long break over the summer before working through until Christmas and the New Year, but it’s becoming increasingly normal for those in the northern hemisphere to whisk themselves away for a quick break during this long and foreboding three month stretch in order to get some sunshine and maintain a degree of sanity.
Here are Villiers Jets top recommendations for a mid-Autumn/ early Winter break:
1. Canary Islands by Private Jet
Perched precariously off the western coast of Africa, this archipelago is an excellent destination if you are looking for somewhere beautiful, warm (temperatures in October and November regularly sit between 20c and 25c) and accessible to head during the colder Autumn months.
Flying to the Canaries by private jet usually entails a flight of 4 – 4.5 hrs, there is no great difference in time zones from most European countries.
Enquire about flights to Gran Canaria Airport (IATA: LPA. ICAO: GCLP) by private jet.
2. Marrakech, Morocco by Private Jet
Conjuring images of bustling souks, romantic riads, and exotic unfamiliar sights, sounds and aromas, Marrakech deserves a place on everybody’s list of destinations to visit when the children have returned to school and a well earned break is on the agenda.
With average temperatures in October of 27c, there is no shortage of sunshine, whilst an abundance of beautiful villas, five star hotels, world class golf courses and trips to the dramatic Atlas mountains for the more intrepid, ensure there is plenty to do. Flights from London to Marrakech by private jet typically take 3 – 3.5 hrs.
Enquire about flights to Marrakech Menara Airport (IATA: RAK, ICAO: GMMX) by private jet.
3. Dubai and the UAE
If guaranteed sunshine and luxury that is second to none are the two most important factors in your decision making process, then it’s difficult to look further than Dubai and the UAE.
Although further afield than the Canaries or Morocco, the flight time to Dubai is very reasonable at just over 6 hrs, putting it well within the reach of medium sized private jets flying from most European countries.
Average temperatures between September and October vary from 30c to 40c, meaning you perhaps wont want to stray too far from the pool in your luxury hotel such as the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah or the Palm Atlantis. With the levels of comfort and service provided, however, its rare that you would need to.
