Wings Over the World

Amazing Luxury Journeys by Private Air.

Experience the epitome of luxury travel on our private plane journeys

Wings Over the World journeys combine A&K’s timeless luxury small-group travel experience and the time-saving convenience of privately chartered flights between destinations, allowing you to visit remote places with less time spent getting there. Every minute saved by flying is better enjoyed exploring alongside an A&K Resident Tour Director®, relaxing in luxurious five-star accommodations and experiencing the incomparable advantage of insider access only possible with Abercrombie & Kent.

More Than You Ever Thought Possible

Wings Over the World journeys dissolve the distances  between destinations, clearing the way for singular  itineraries that allow you to see and experience more  than you ever thought possible on a single journey. Every minute saved by flying between locales is better enjoyed exploring alongside an A&K Resident Tour Director,® relaxing in luxurious five-star accommodations and experiencing the incomparable advantage of insider access, as only Abercrombie & Kent can offer it.

Ease on the Ground & Comfort in the Air

Relax with hassle-free flight departures and arrivals, avoiding waits at airports due to restrictive commercial aviation schedules. Privately chartered air travel means you also often fly from separate terminals, allowing for fewer crowds and faster security procedures. In the air, the experienced crews aboard our chartered planes offer you personalised in-flight service, in a comfortable, sociable atmosphere.

A One-of-a-Kind Travel Experience

This distinctive combination of flexibility and convenience results in a higher calibre of small group journey, one that shows off each destination at its luxurious inspiring best.

Ideal Group Sizes

With several Wings Over the World journeys limited to as few as 12, 13 or 14 guests – and none with more than 18 – A&K offers you exclusive insider access opportunities only available to an intimate group of like-minded travellers -  from private museum openings to visits with local people in their own homes and stays at one-of-kind hotels that can’t accommodate larger groups.

Simply the Best Hotels

When considering a hotel, our experts look at more than just the rooms. We select only the most remarkable accommodations — often a Condé Nast Traveller Gold List or Travel + Leisure World’s Best hotel — combining superior service, local character and unanticipated luxuries that are synonymous with five-star style. Here again, the benefits of our small group sizes come into play, allowing us to select one-of-a-kind locations close to the places you most dream of seeing and from among the region’s best properties. Rarely available to larger groups, they may be historically iconic, coveted high-design, or supremely located at the edge of the wild.

Peerless Local Access

Wings Over the World journeys offer you unfettered access to people and sites far beyond the reach of the average traveller. Our Resident Tour Directors have lived for decades, or even their entire lives, in the places you visit, and offer you insights into local culture that can only come from being a local. Travelling in a small group also offers you intangible benefits that can add up to a measurable difference in how you experience your destination. The fewer the guests on any departure, the more time each one has to spend, one on one, with the highly knowledgeable Resident Tour Director and the expert local guides that help make the history and culture of a destination come vividly to life.
