How to Plan a Party on a Jet or Yacht
Baron Aviation organised a party for these teenage girls
Most hotel schedules are packed with parties by the dozen this time of the year. And if you're stuck with a place to throw a party, why not take it off the ground? We think you should get more imaginative; charting a luxury yacht - or even a private jet - is a great option.
And it's pretty simple. We bring you to the best in luxury charter services, who will handle your party planning too. Thank us later.
Baron Aviation: They take their parties very seriously. They will sort an arial view of anything, from watching the fire crackers during Diwali or taking a chopper ride to see Ganesha Visarjan, to a kitty party on a helicopter and visit to a short-haul virgin destination, with on board games too.
They have short-haul and long-haul holiday packages that can be customised. Be it arranging for vintage champagne or food prepared by a Michelin star chef served on board, you can rely on them.
All their planes offer ample space, luxury furnishings and individualized attention.
But you haven't partied on a plane before, and are wondering how you are going to choose the best plane from the fleet? Rajeev Wadhwa, chairman of Baron Aviation, recommends the Global Express 5000 for the ultimate in luxury, but keeping in account the aircraft that can carter to domestic and international flying, he's say the Falcon 2000 and Challenger 604. The latter two will cost you about Rs 3 lakh per hour, each.

You don't have to fly if you don't want to. The high seas are a great place to have a party too.
