Wheels Up and luxury travel company Abercrombie & Kent have announced a strategic partnership to offer Wheels Up members bespoke travel experiences utilising the Wheels Up fleet in North America and private small group journeys in international destinations. This latest benefit is the seventh created for Wheels Up members during the past six months and continues to demonstrate the company's investment in lifestyle and luxury experiences for its members.
The partnership will be launched with two domestic Abercrombie & Kent curated and customised journeys for Wheels Up members to explore America's National Parks and the Pacific coast. The exclusive itineraries can be booked on an individual basis at any time. Both domestic itineraries will utilise the Wheels Up fleet to fly between destinations, with private A&K guides for insider access.
In January 2022, Wheels Up and Abercrombie & Kent will offer a members-only journey to East Africa for the Great Migration. This excursion combines the finest game viewing and luxury accommodations that offer memorable views of the Masai Mara, Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti.
A&K private travel consultants will collaborate with Wheels Up members to design custom itineraries for all trips booked, bringing a blend of creativity, professionalism and beyond-the-guidebook knowledge to planning the trip. Peace of mind comes from being met by a knowledgeable, English-speaking A&K guide in each destination, supported by A&K logistics experts on the ground.
Wheels Up and Abercrombie & Kent will announce additional members-only itineraries to destinations such as Morocco, southeast Asia and more later this year.
“Our members are eager to explore new destinations and this unique partnership with Abercrombie & Kent allows us to offer extraordinary private adventures,” says Wheels Up founder and CEO Kenny Dichter. “This is the first time we will offer members-only curated trips, and we are excited to do so with a world-class partner like A&K. We will continue to elevate our member benefits and partners for our loyal members, delivering exceptional experiences and value for their membership.”
Abercrombie & Kent founder, co-chairman and CEO Geoffrey Kent adds: “Our partnership with Wheels Up sets a new standard in private luxury travel. Working with A&K's network of offices around the world, Wheels Up members will enjoy privileged access to once-in-a-lifetime adventures, customised exclusively for them.”
Wheels Up members will also receive special benefits while travelling with A&K, and A&K's Marco Polo Club members receive preferred membership options to join Wheels Up for their private aviation needs.
