Crystal Cruises is taking to the skies with their new AirCruises experience. The company’s CEO and president, Edie Rodriguez recently unveiled the latest designs for the first aircraft, a Boeing 777-200LR, a sneak peek into what Crystal AirCruises will offer.
The plane will be able to transport 84 guests to exotic and remote destinations on 14-, 21- and 28-day itineraries all the while giving them the most luxurious and exclusive experience.
Crystal’s privately owned Boeing 777-200LR is currently being transformed to meet Crystal’s exceptional standards of customization, and will boast plush, fully reclining Crystal Exclusive Class™ seats, airy social spaces, large flat-screen TVs, Crystal’s famous butler and concierge services and chef prepared gourmet meals.
“Crystal AirCruises is not just a thrilling new venture for Crystal, but a ground-breaking development in the luxury travel industry,” said Rodriguez. “Even the savviest travelers and guests who have sailed on our award-winning ocean cruises many times will relish brand new opportunities to explore places impossible to reach by water, all with Crystal’s signature personalized service and the highest standard of luxury at every point of travel.”
Larger and newer than any private jet travel option, Crystal’s Boeing 777-200LR will feature custom Crystal Exclusive Class seats which fully recline to lie-flat beds, measuring 73.5 inches long, for maximum personal space and ergonomic comfort.
A social lounge will encourage socialization between travelers with its stand-up bar, two divans and four dining tables with dedicated seating for six guests.
Other amenities include Bose® Noise Cancelling headphones, Apple® iPads, complimentary global WiFi, 24-inch interactive TVs with on-demand programming and music library, individual USB ports and power outlets, and a live cockpit-to-ground listening channel, custom blankets, lumbar and pillows, plush duvets and mattress toppers.
Crystal AirCruises will take off in the fall of 2017.
