PrivateFly offers the ultimate double New Year’s Eve celebration itinerary, from Sydney to Honolulu in a Gulfstream G650ER

That long-awaited New Year’s Eve party can pass all too fast. Before you know it, it’s all over and you’re waking up to the start of another year. But what if you could fly back in time to do it all over? It might sound like science fiction, but PrivateFly is offering a bespoke 24-hour private jet itinerary, to do just that.

Using the world’s fastest and furthest private jet, bespoke scheduling and a tight airport turnaround, you can enjoy a full evening of celebrations and the stroke of midnight in Sydney. Then – if you have the stamina (and the budget) – jump onboard your private jet and fly to Hawaii, to do the same all over again.

Experiencing New Year’s Eve twice is only possible by moving eastwards across the International Date Line. With the world rotating at 1,038 miles per hour, the time in Honolulu is 21 hours behind Sydney, so you can visit both in the same evening - by minimising travel time and flying on a bespoke itinerary, says the private jet booking service.

Carol Cork, marketing director of PrivateFly, comments: “This is the ultimate way to see in 2018, in two of the world’s most glamorous locations. The flight time from Sydney to Honolulu in a Gulfstream G650ER is 9 hours and 40 minutes, so with the 21-hour time difference, you get to replay over 11 hours of party time, by flying eastwards.

“This unique flight experience is only possible by private jet, as the timings are so tight – and there are no airline schedules to fit the itinerary.

“No civilian aircraft can currently overtake time. But the Gulfstream G650ER is the world’s fastest and furthest private jet, with a nonstop flight range of 7,500 nautical miles and a top speed of Mach 0.9, just under the speed of sound.”

Here’s how it works:

20:00, 31st December 2017, Sydney: Get the (first) party started

Start your evening in Sydney, one of the world’s most iconic party cities. Whether it’s a VIP party or dinner at a top restaurant, you’ll want to bag a spot with a view of the spectacular harbour fireworks.

12.00, 1st January 2018, Sydney: Celebrate New Year – for the first time

There’s plenty of time to celebrate the start of 2018, before making the short 12km drive to Sydney Kingsford Smith airport (open 24-hours for private jets).

02:00, 1st January 2018, Sydney: Depart in your Gulfstream G650ER

Your Gulfstream G650ER ultra long range jet will be waiting, ready for a 2.00am departure time. There are no queues so you’ll take off just minutes after you arrive. The G650ER is the fastest long range private jet in the world - the party aircraft of choice, offering a sleek interior configuration which accommodates 13 passengers.

During the 9.5 hour flight, dedicated partygoers can continue the celebrations, VIP style, with a high-spec entertainment system, fine wines and spirits, champagne and VVIP catering served by a private flight attendant.

Or if you’d rather recharge, you couldn’t be in better hands. The spacious G650ER cabin offers exceptional, luxury comfort, with a master suite bedroom option and further ergonomic, fully-reclining seats; floor-to-ceiling wardrobe and mirrored vanity; the latest bespoke lighting and temperature controls; and low cabin pressure to reduce jet lag.

15:40, 31st December 2017, Honolulu: Ready to party all over again

While others have woken to sore heads back in Sydney, you’ll land in Hawaii back in the afternoon on New Year’s Eve – refreshed and ready to start over.

12:00, 1st January 2018, Honololu: Celebrate New Year – for the second time

There’s no shortage of luxury nightspots in Honololu. Or you might choose to party on the beach. Either way, as you see in 2018 for the second time, it’s undoubtedly been a memorable night!

Flight cost: Whole aircraft charter cost $290,000 Sydney – Honolulu (one-way). Or from $22,300 per person, if a group of 13 passengers travel together.
