Fly ‘back in time’ by private jet & celebrate New Year 2019 twice

New Year’s Eve is the biggest party night of the year. But with so many celebrations taking place all over the world, it can be difficult to choose how and where to spend it.

But what if you could celebrate it twice over in one night, in two different, iconic party hotspots on different sides of the world? It might sound like something from a movie, but with a customised and carefully-planned private jet itinerary, you can do it for real.

How to celebrate New Year twice by private jet

With the world rotating at 1,038 miles per hour, the time in LA is 19 hours behind Sydney. So if you can keep the travel time between the two lower than that, you can (effectively) arrive several hours before you left! Flying on an ultra long range jet, such as a Gulfstream G550, with a bespoke itinerary, it’s possible to celebrate New Year in both places.

The flight time from Sydney to LA in a Gulfstream G550 is 13.5 hours, so with the 19-hour time difference, you get to replay over 5.5 hours of party time, by flying eastwards.

This unique flight experience is only possible by private jet, as the timings are so tight – and there are no airline schedules to fit the itinerary.
