- Abercrombie and Kent’s 23-day global trip aboard a private Boeing 757 will take off on May 5.
- The luxurious itinerary starts at $136,000 per person and includes stops in Italy, India, and Nepal.
- Around-the-world trips, specifically itineraries aboard cruise ships, have been selling fast.
And this eagerness and pent up demand has recently driven cruise goers to fully book months-long world cruises within hours of the itineraries’ debuts.
If you’re also interested in traveling across the world but have no desire to travel by sea for months at a time, Abercrombie and Kent may have the perfect solution for you (as long as you’re willing to pay the big bucks).
The luxury travel company is targeting the increasingly popular around-the-world travel segment with its own $136,000 per-person itinerary.

The travel company’s “Cultural Treasures: Around the World by Private Jet” 23-day itinerary will begin on May 5 …
… and will bring the up to 48 guests across several continents.
The 48 travelers will explore the world on a chartered Boeing 757 outfitted with leather seats that have built-in massage systems and adjustable head and lumbar support.
Like any first-class flight, the seats can lie flat, turning into 79-inch flat beds for slumbers in the sky.
Passengers on the 757 will also have access to an open bar, noise-canceling headphones, meal services, and in-flight entertainment that “complements” the travel itinerary, according to Abercrombie and Kent’s press release.
A physician will also be traveling with the group, and all travelers must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
The flight around the world will start in Seattle with stops in …
… Guam, Cambodia, Nepal, India, Uzbekistan, the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, and Italy before ending in Boston.
At each destination, the passengers will be paired off into groups of 16 people led by a “tour manager” and a local tour guide.
And along the way, travelers will get to see historical destinations like Angkor Wat, the Taj Mahal, and Petra …
… while driving their own vintage cars in Sicily, taking helicopter rides to see Mount Everest, and receiving private tours of a monastery in Cambodia.
It wouldn’t be a proper six-digit price tag trip without luxurious accommodations: The travelers will get to stay at five-star hotels like the Oberoi Amarvilas in Agra, India with views of the Taj Mahal.

And the meals — all of which will be included — will be just as luxurious. How does dinner at a private auto race in Abu Dhabi sound?
If you’re used to shorter, less luxurious trips, this $136,000 endeavor may seem over-the-top.
But according to Abercrombie and Kent, its customers “want to reward themselves” after months of no traveling …
… and have been “planning bigger and more splurge-worthy” vacations like the around the world private jet trip, the company told Insider in an email statement.
“There is a new sense of urgency — many feel they have lost two years and older clients are concerned about having fewer healthy years left to travel,” the company said.
