06 Oct Christmas in New York
‘Most magical time of the year’
Charter a private jet with Falcona to the ‘City that never sleeps’ . Visitors are enthralled by the abundance of major attractions and landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, Central Park and numerous museums and Broadway shows.
Spend the day taking in the vibrant culture, world-famous shopping and one-of-a-kind eateries only New York can offer during winter. In the evening, find a welcome respite in the midst of a bustling metropolis
New York is still one of the most popular destinations for private jet travellers, it’s the centre of US finance markets, the fashion industry and a major player in the entertainment scene.
With over 8 million people it needs to be the city that never sleeps, private jets are well catered for around the clock here.
Manhattan is the heartbeat of New York and a private jet flight takes you right to the centre of Manhattan. Towering skyscrapers adorn the landscape and Times Square is a place where everyone congregates, the hustle and bustle of Manhattan is an experience in itself.
Experience Christmas in New York, magical shop windows displays, ice skating in Central Park or Bryant Park. The Christmas lights are on and the tree lighting ceremonies begin to give you that Christmas feeling. Tiffany & Co and Saks Fifth Avenue are a must visit; music and light shows brighten up the department stores window.
Got the kids with you? check out Santaland at Macy’s, a winterland experience or take them to a family Broadway show.
Take a walk to Rockefeller Centre and it’s stunning tree displays, but be warned it will be busy, extremely busy. Bergdorf Goodman is also another good option to visit.
Visit the markets (nearly as good as the Manchester Christmas markets)! If you’re in the mood for a bit of shopping, then you’re in the right place.
No one does luxury shopping like New York. Home to the world’s largest Dolce & Gabbana store, you will also find Tom Ford, Lanvin, Chloe, Alexander McQueen, Valentino, Chanel and Cartier to name a few. Fill your bags as there is plenty of space for extra bags on a Gulfstream G450!
If you’re planning on a trip without the kids we highly recommend you visit Times Square for the New Year, nothing comes close to it on New Year’s Eve.
Private Jet Airports
It’s the main private jet airport to New York, although there are other airports which are accessible to private aircraft where you escape the crowds of JFK, La Guardia and Newark.
Executive airports in New York allow you to arrive closer to Manhattan. So we have recommended these for your journey. Teterboro is the most popular airport and with that it’s the most busy. The airport is in the New Jersey Meadowlands, 12 miles (19 km) from Midtown Manhattan, which makes it very popular for private and corporate jets.
The airport has a weight limit of 100,000 pounds (45,000 kg) on aircraft, which is meant to make it not viable as a commercial airport. Travel time to the centre of Manhattan is just a 20 minute drive. However you can expect some minor delays due to the amount of traffic that goes here.
Morris Town Airport
is another good private jet airport. A general aviation reliever airport for the New York Metropolitan region. Located just 27 miles from the Holland Tunnel, Morristown is just minutes to Manhattan, providing easy access to downtown New York City. The customs facility at Morristown allows a efficient and hassle free transition to Manhattan.
So wherever you’re planning on going to in New York a private jet flight can get you closer.
