In a bid to woo would-be travelers who are apprehensive about boarding very long and potentially very crowded commercial flights to the Hawaiian Islands, Four Seasons’ portfolio of resorts in Hawaii has partnered with Jet Edge to provide private flights to any one of the Hawaiian Four Seasons Resorts — from anywhere in the United States.

While the coronavirus pandemic has left a large majority of travelers stuck at home, it’s also led to the phenomenally well-heeled escaping to less-populated parts of the world in private planes to avoid the crowds, layovers and germs that come with commercial travel.

Flights will be on board either Bombardier or Gulfstream jets with room for 12 to 16 passengers in addition to the flight attendant on board, according to reporting by Afar, and they’ll take you directly to the island on which you’re staying. Ground transfers from the airport to each property are included with your fare, as well.

All of Four Seasons’ hotels in Hawaii — including the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea, Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina, Four Seasons Resort Hualalai, Four Seasons Resort Lanai and Sensei Lanai, A Four Seasons Resort — are included in the offer. To inquire about pricing and availability, send an email to [email protected]

Even if you’re flying private into Hawaii, you must satisfy the COVID-19 entry requirements for the state. This means all travelers must present the results of a negative Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT) taken through one of Hawaii’s trusted partners no more than 72 hours before arrival.

Elsewhere, other luxury brands are forging relationships with private jet companies to appeal to high-net-worth travelers. Magellan Jets has partnered with the ultra-luxe Amanera resort in the Dominican Republic to give its customers exclusive perks when they arrive at the resort. Magellan clients will be entitled to a private beach dinner, a ceviche cooking class or a rum tasting class for any trips to Amanera booked between now and June 30, 2021.

Travelers to the Dominican Republic do not have to present proof of negative COVID-19 tests upon entering, though may subject to a possible test upon arrival — either by random selection or if you present symptoms of the disease. Additionally, the Dominican Republic is providing a complimentary rapid antigen test for all guests staying at a hotel within the country to comply with the new U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regulations for entering the United States.

As we move through what is hopefully the last phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, travelers with the means to do so will likely continue to turn to private travel to escape lockdowns or just to get away from home for a few days — or weeks. It’s not unreasonable to expect to see more of these private jet and luxury resort collaborations come on to the market as people grow ever more tired of being cooped up in their homes.

And when you do spend on dining, you should use a credit card that will maximize your rewards and potentially even score special discounts. Thanks to temporary card bonuses and changes due to coronavirus, you may even be able to score a meal at your favorite restaurant for free. 

These are the best credit cards for dining out, taking out, and ordering in to maximize every meal purchase.
