The A321LR has been selected by Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts to provide luxury worldwide ‘air cruises’ from 2021. Sylvain Mariat, head of creative design at ACJ, worked with Four Seasons to create a cabin to fulfil the mission. The 48 lie-flat seats will have ottomans so passengers can enjoy face-to-face conversations. There will also be a lounge and two large washrooms on board.
“Four Seasons’ A321LR cabin embodies décor that echoes the stylish elegance of its hotels, features seats crafted to look and feel good, and delivers unprecedented space for socializing and enjoyment,” said Sylvain Mariat, head of creative design at ACJ.
The A321LR is one of the newest aircraft in the Airbus Neo family and features new engines and wingtip-mounted Sharklets, as well as extra fuel tanks in the cargo hold. These features enable the A321LR to fly nonstop to landmark sights around the world, while maintaining the ability to land at nearby airports.
“The Four Seasons private jet experience defines modern luxury aviation, encouraging meaningful connections between people and places while delivering a seamless and highly personalized journey,” said Christian Clerc, president, worldwide hotel operations, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “Building on the tremendous success of our Private Jet program to date, with consistent sellouts, waitlists and near-perfect guest satisfaction rates, our drive to continuously innovate and push the conventional limits of travel has led to this new opportunity to experience Four Seasons like never before.”
“With the widest and tallest cabins of any aircraft in their class, Airbus corporate jets are wonderfully well suited to an air cruising role, helping to make journeys memorably enjoyable parts of exclusive travel experiences,” said Benoit Defforge, ACJ president.
