Last week, the Abercrombie & Kent (A&K) Private Jet arrived in Hobart for a three-day sojourn as part ofits exclusive ‘Around the World with Geoffrey Kent’ tour. Accompanied by A&K Founder, Mr Geoffrey Kent,50 travellers were treated to a carefully curated selection of unique experiences in the Apple Isle, the onlyAustralian stop on the epic trip.

Highlights of this trip included helicopter tours to private wineries, Bruny Island wilderness cruises and
private tours of local attractions including Australian Convict Sites World Heritage listed. Guests visited the
historic Shene Estate, enjoyed an exclusive Gala event at the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) and
experienced a premium night-time tour of the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary.

Exclusive charters of helicopters and private aircraft made this one of the largest charter operations that
Tasmania has ever seen. Innovative touring options included charter flights over Wineglass Bay and a day
spent on a fifth generation family-owned sheep station with a wandering showcase of local Tasmanian
produce.

Luxury travel company Abercrombie & Kent has been operating private jet trips for more than 20 years.
The journeys operate on a specially customised Boeing 757, converted from its normal passenger capacity
to a maximum of 50 guests, with fully lie-flat seats and cabin crew on board for the entire journey.

“It’s a trend which is definitely growing”, says Sujata Raman, Regional Managing Director A&K
Australia/Asia Pacific. “Travellers today are time challenged. They want to experience new and out-of-theway places without the hassle of airport bureaucracy. Travelling by private jet allows access to remote
destinations that larger airlines don’t service on a timetable dictated by the itinerary – not an airline’s
convenience – and a first class experience getting there.”

The next journey will occur in February 2018, inspired by The New York Times, it has been specially
curated by Abercrombie & Kent. Tailored around today's most compelling headlines, the Private Jet will
travel to destinations that range from Cuba and Colombia to Iceland and Israel as well as Samoa and
Sydney, accompanied by some of The New York Times' most noteworthy journalists and contributors, who
share their first-hand perspectives on the people and places that shape our world. Prices start from
USD135,000 per person.
