Edie Rodriguez, CEO and president of the Genting owned Crystal luxury travel group, has unveiled the designs for its first aircraft, a Boeing 777-200LR. (See also A340 goes Executive in this issue).
Marketed as Crystal AirCruises, with a planned autumn 2017 launch, the aircraft will transport just 84 guests to some of the world’s most exotic and remote destinations in decidedly first class accommodations on 14-, 21- and 28-day itineraries.
“Crystal AirCruises is not just a thrilling new venture for Crystal, but a ground-breaking development in the luxury travel industry,” says Rodriguez. “Even the savviest travellers 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 personalised service and the highest standard of luxury at every point of travel.”
The custom Crystal Exclusive Class seats fully recline to lie-flat beds, measuring 73.5in long, for maximum personal space and ergonomic comfort, while the expansive social lounge with stand-up bar, two divans and four dining tables with dedicated seating for six guests fosters friendly camaraderie among guests. Cuisine will be prepared by a dedicated executive chef in two state-of-the-art galleys and paired with an elegant premium wine list.
