2017 New Year’s Eve top destinations are easy to reach, when you fly with LunaJets.

Whether you like it snowy or sandy, lively or deserted, LunaJets can fly you to the destination that will make this end of the year, one to remember (or two). How about experiencing the most sensational New Year’s Eve celebration, twice?

New Zealand & the Cook Islands

Yes, celebrating New Year’s Eve twice is possible, and it’s called New Zealand & the Cook Islands. Located on the opposite sides of the International Date Line, Auckland is among the first places in the world to start the final countdown and Rarotonga among the last places erupting with cheer as the new year dawns.

Hire a private jet to Auckland (AKL) and pop the champagne in New Zealand for a first round of celebrations. The next day, you can fly to Rarotonga (RAR) in just 4 hours and arrive in time to witness the countdown hit 0 again, for an unforgettable, second New Year’s Eve on the magnificent Cook Islands’ beaches.


Welcome 2018 in style with ultimate alpine parties in Courchevel.

If you haven’t experienced the famous Folie Douce yet, New Year’s Eve might be the perfect initiation. Enjoy an extraordinary Après Ski full of music, colours and surprises, as the Folie Douce’s extravagance lights up the mountain.

You can fly private to Chambery (CMF) or Geneva (GVA) airports and we will arrange your helicopter or limousine transfer to Courchevel.


Fly private to the City of Light for New Year celebrations to understand how well it honours its nickname. Enjoy the glorious fireworks and the Eiffel Tower lightshow to feel the magic of Paris welcoming a new year.

Paris Le Bourget Airport (LBG) is exclusively dedicated to private aviation, and we can fly you there anytime.


New Year’s Eve in London means welcoming the new year to the sound of the iconic Big Ben striking midnight. Cheerful crowds pop the corks on the banks of the Thames and enjoy the spectacular fireworks.

We can fly you to Biggin Hill Airport (BQH), particularly popular for private jet flights and less than an hour drive from central London.

New York

When the clock strikes 12 in New York City, over a million people watch the famous ball drop in Times Square. Numerous bars and restaurants overlooking the square allow you to sip champagne while witnessing the gigantic crystal ball fall without the hassle of standing in the crowd.

Located 25 minutes north of Manhattan, Teterboro Airport (TEB) is very central and a great place to land when flying to New York on a private jet.

Hong Kong

Counting among the world’s most impressive lightshows, Hong Kong is as dazzling as ever when it comes to celebrating the start of a new year. At midnight, mesmerizing shapes of colourful fireworks and pyrotechnic effects start dancing in the sky, all choreographed to music.

Situated 30km to the west of the city centre, Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) houses the Hong Kong Business Aviation Centre, dedicated to private aviation.


Home to vibrant nightlife and perfect slopes, Verbier allows for a New Year’ day ski just as epic as the New Year’s Eve celebrations. Numerous chic cocktail and lounge bars offer a quintessential end-of-the-year scene: toasting with a fizzy glass of champagne while the snow falls outside is a delight.

We can fly you to Sion (SIR) or Geneva (GVA) airports and gladly organize a helicopter flight to the resort or a limousine transfer service.

St. Moritz

Celebrating the dawn of a new year in glamourous St. Moritz, is synonymous with a memorable evening in the classiest place in the Alps. Shimmering mountain slopes and dazzling Christmas lights contribute to this luxurious ski resort’s unique atmosphere.

The private jet airport, Engadin Samedan (SMW), is only a 10-minute drive away from the heart of the resort.

Rio de Janeiro

Spending New Year’s Eve on Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro can be as exciting as experiencing its famous Carnival. It’s a uniquely Brazilian celebration and the season’s biggest party in the world: incredibly fun, full of colours and live music, with locals dressed all in white and amazing fireworks lighting up the sky.

We can fly you to Rio’s Galeão International Airport (GIG) on bespoke private jets.


Famous for being a fabulous year-round party city, Berlin is the perfect New Year destination if you’re looking for a big, loud and lively celebration. One of Europe’s largest street parties animates the whole city, with more than a million people gathering to pop the champagne and cheer when the clock strikes 12.

Get ready to party and dance at Berlin’s iconic clubs and we’ll take care of your private flights to Schoenfeld (SXF) or Tegel (TXL) airports, located 20 minutes and 30 minutes away from the city.
