Why should I travel to a wellness retreat in Europe by private jet?

If you’re looking to swap the pressures of everyday life to revitalize and rejuvenate your entire being, health and wellness retreats are the way to go. Travelling to a luxury wellness retreat by private jet will give you that extra dose of tranquility that is simply not available with commercial air travel. Flying by private jet saves time and stress: there’s no need to turn up early at the airport and join queues with hundreds of other people. (With LunaJets we recommend booking your trip with ample time in advance, but flights can still be scheduled in just two hours). You can decide your schedule, stay as long as you like, and you are collected from your home or hotel thanks to Lunajets’ luxury transfer service, which comes as standard. Travelling by private jet allows you to visit multiple retreats in just one trip, meaning you can soothe your mental health, try out yoga and turn your hand to a more experimental treatment, within the space of a few days, by chartering a jet that is on your schedule.

“Travelling by private jet saves time and stress, so you start your spa or wellness break in the right frame of mind.”

How do I know which type of private plane to charter?

The type of private aircraft you charter depends on how many people you will be travelling with. If you’re escaping for a bit of TLC alone or as a couple, clients tend to choose a Very Light or Small Light Jet. If you’re taking the whole family away to explore the stunning backdrop of European nature while you check in on your wellness, you may want to take a Super Light Jet.
