Crystal Luxury Air To Include Boeing 777
Crystal Cruises has purchased a Boeing Business Jet B777-200LR, which will offer an array of global itineraries for its expanded brand extension Crystal Luxury Air. The announcement comes on the heels of Crystal’s news in July of an extensive brand expansion, which will include extravagant air holidays around the world aboard a luxurious Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner.
In addition to doubling the initial air projections with the expanded aircraft fleet, Crystal will work with the Registry of Aruba in developing and securing an Air Operator’s Certificate. This will pave the way for Crystal Luxury Air to launch international operations. The twin-aisle BBJ B777-200LR will be redesigned to accommodate just 88 guests with flat-bed first class seats; a beautifully appointed lounge and bar; and offer 14- and 28-day around-the-world and international itineraries, beginning in 2017.
The twin-aisle Boeing 777-200LR and the Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner, which typically seats up to 300 passengers and will be redesigned to accommodate just 52 guests, will boast the premium luxury that discerning global travellers have come to expect from Crystal Cruises, including copious amounts of guest space, plush amenities and Crystal’s world-class service and crew. Trips will include accommodation at the world’s most luxurious hotels, the finest Michelin star-level cuisine prepared by celebrated chefs and fabulous local cultural entertainment. Additionally, the aircrafts can be arranged for special charters.
In summer 2015, Crystal embarked on the most significant brand expansion in the history of luxury travel and hospitality, which will introduce three new classes of cruising – Crystal Yacht Cruises (2015), Crystal River Cruises (2016) and Crystal Exclusive Class Ocean Cruises (2018) – and Crystal Luxury Air Cruises (2017).
Crystal Cruises current ocean fleet, Crystal Symphony and the freshly-designed 1,070-guest Crystal Serenity offer voyages through the Middle East, Africa, Caribbean, South America, Antarctica, Mediterranean, Canary Islands, Black Sea, Panama Canal, Mexican Riviera, Asia, Australia/New Zealand, South Pacific, British Isles, Baltic Sea, Arctic Circle and New England/Canada.
