Crystal Cruises Buys 88-Seat Boeing Business Jet 777-200LR

Crystal Cruises has purchased a Boeing Business Jet B777-200LR.

In July, Crystal Cruises unveiled details of an extensive brand expansion for Crystal Luxury Air, which will include extravagant air vacations around the world aboard a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner.

In addition to doubling the initial air projections with the expanded aircraft fleet, Crystal will work with the Registry of Aruba in developing and securing an Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC). This will pave the way for Crystal Luxury Air to launch international operations.

The twin-aisle BBJ B777-200LR will be redesigned to accommodate just 88 guests with flat-bed first class seats; a lounge and bar; and offer 14 and 28-day around-the-world and international itineraries, beginning in 2017.

“Our mission is to make Crystal the core of what will become the world’s premier luxury hospitality and lifestyle brand collection, not only for the immediate future, but for years to come,” said Crystal Chairman, Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay. “The acquisition of our second luxury aircraft is another profound step toward establishing our goal.”

The Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner, which typically seats up to 300 passengers, will be redesigned to accommodate just 52 guests.

 Trips will include accommodation at the world’s most luxurious hotels, the finest Michelin star-level cuisine prepared by celebrated chefs and local cultural entertainment. The aircraft can also be booked for special charters.

“Following our expansion announcement, travelers and travel agents expressed a strong interest in all-inclusive luxury air travel with a wider range of itineraries,” said Crystal’s President and CEO, Edie Rodriguez. “Based on this enthusiastic feedback, we are growing our fleet to meet the demand from our guests and travel partners in luxury air options.”
