Crystal AirCruises’ Crystal Skye wins Best of the Best 2018

Crystal AirCruises, a member of Genting Cruise Lines, redefines bespoke luxury air travel with pioneering new service

Crystal AirCruises, a member of Genting Cruise Lines, was honoured at the 2018 Hurun Report Best of the Best Awards for its New AirCruise and Charter Service on Wednesday, 24 January during a glittering event held at The Ritz-Carlton Shanghai, Pudong. The Hurun Report Best of the Best is the annual awards organized Hurun Research Institute, the world’s leading authority in the understanding of Chinese high net worth individuals, to recognize the most preferred brands based on research findings of brand awareness, preferences, consumption habits and lifestyle trends.

“We are honored to be recognized by the Hurun Research Institute as one of the Best of the Best in the category of private jet charters and curated journeys. This is a notable milestone for Crystal AirCruises within a remarkably short period of time,” said Mr. Thatcher Brown, President of Crystal AirCruises. “We are grateful for the continuous support from discerning international travelers and partners who value the luxuries of time, convenience, comfort, and enrichment that we uniquely offer with Crystal AirCruises and our bespoke charters.  Crystal AirCruises is truly an innovative compliment to Crystal’s expanding portfolio of luxury experiences including ocean cruises, river cruises and yacht offerings.”

Since its launch in September 2017, Crystal AirCruises’ Crystal Skye, the opulently appointed Boeing 777, has been the talk of the town for its unrivaled standard of private luxury travel during its Golden Week Voyage to Fiji and Tahiti and Double New Year’s Celebration to Sydney and Honolulu – proving popular among high-end travelers around the world.

Encouraged by the overwhelming success of these sold-out itineraries, Crystal AirCruises invites discerning explorers to ring in Year of the Dog with the Wonders of Africa Safari Adventure, a journey of discovery to the untamed wilds of Kenya, departing from Malaysia on 17 February, the second day of the Lunar New Year, until 23 February. On board the world’s newest, largest and most spacious private tour jet, guests will enjoy impeccable service by an expert team of butlers and crew as well as premium amenities, including a separate social space complete with lounge seating and stand-up bar, handcrafted and ergonomically designed seats, state-of-the-art in-flight entertainment system, Michelin star-inspired cuisine and more.

Upon arrival in Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya, guests will take a charter flight to the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, where they will reside in the spectacular Governors’ Camp, awarded a Silver Eco Rating by Eco Tourism Kenya. For the next three days, guests will be able to enjoy the wilds of Africa with hippos, trogons and turacos as neighbors, welcome the first rays of the sun while on a morning game drive, take a hot air balloon ride for mesmerizing views of the savanna, or immerse themselves in local tribal culture including the “jumping dance” ritual of the Maasai tribe warriors. Every evening, enjoy a decadent feast under the vast, star-filled skies of the African wilderness.

Crystal Skye – the One and Only
