Dubai-based Empire Aviation Group (EAG) has joined forces with Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces to create a new portfolio of luxury holiday travel packages.
"They all include a private jet operated by Empire Aviation Group," says Paras Dhamecha, executive director, "and offer a choice of exotic holidays at select Taj Hotels – some of the most exclusive properties in India, the Maldives and South Africa. The locations include idyllic beach resorts and authentic grand palaces, each of which offers warm Indian hospitality, world-class service and modern luxury."
EAG, which operates and manages a large fleet on private jets, says the timing of the launch is excellent. Dhamecha says: "The taste for luxury travel and private jet charter demand is returning strongly in the region."
