The top European travel destinations best reached by private jet
The days are slowly getting lighter as we emerge from winter but cold and grey conditions continue to leave us feeling down. Yet, there are ways of surviving this time of the year other than curling up in a warm duvet.
Booking a holiday is one of the best means of combating the ‘winter blues’ and, thanks to the plethora of online booking platforms available, travellers can now escape at the tap of a button. However research suggests that many travellers are avoiding going on holiday because of unnecessary stress at the airport.
As the ultimate method of transport, designed for one main purpose – to cut the time it takes to get from A to B – private jets are the perfect solution for that coveted, hassle-free, quick getaway. No delays, no airport queues, no stress. And thanks to a cutting-edge technology, the once old-fashioned private jet industry is no longer the reserve of just the rich and famous.
Stratajet, the world’s first fully-automated private jet booking platform – the only platform in the world that provides accurate availability and costs of private jets in real-time – is making this much under-utilised means of transport more affordable and available at passengers’ fingertips.
So, if you are looking to lift your winter spirits or get some needed rest and relaxation, Stratajet has compiled a list of some of Europe’s finest retreats, where you can focus on wellness and wellbeing. And with Stratajet, you can avoid the added stress of returning from your time away.
