A new impressive re-design of a commercial aircraft Boeing 787 Dreamliner sees it being transformed into a flying penthouse. Dubbed ‘VVIP’ because of its heightened exclusivity, it’s the world’s largest private jet. The £230million aircraft went on display at London’s Stansted Airport, this week, as it marks the launch of bespoke travel packages by Deer Jet.
To experience the Dreamjet’s flashy delights travellers will need to hire out the whole plane – as it’s not possible to book just a single seat. That will set them back roughly £20,000 per hour, meaning a flight from London to New York would have a price tag of at least £160,000 or from New York to Australia – £440,000 single fare, £880,000 for return journey. Although, that’s a small price for the complete privacy and unmatched luxury the remodelled aircraft offers.
The conversion offers guests ample space – 2,400 square feet to be precise – which is limited to a capacity of 30 lucky jet-setters. Fitted with extra-large windows for greater views of the skies, the luxury cabin also features 18 lie-flat first class beds, in addition to the main lounge for meetings, relaxing or partying.
The Marble-finish bathrooms are kitted-out with Jo Malone toiletries. In addition, the cabin also possesses private space for guests who want their privacy. Crew and in-flight butlers are accommodated in separate designated staff quarters.
High-standard leather sofa beds – which recline fully – are arranged around the 2,400 square feet cabin. The idea behind the new exclusive service is to ‘make travel an art’ for business and leisure travellers worldwide.
