Did you know that private jets can access more airports than commercial aircrafts? In the United States, flying privately gives you access to around 5,200 public airports and more than 14,000 private airports.

Here are four exclusive destinations around the world, each accessible only with the flexibility and freedom provided by private flights:

1. Norman’s Cay, Bahamas

Norman’s Cay is a quaint island located in the Exumas chain, south and east of Nassau, Bahamas, presenting an untouched paradise. With its airport off-limits to commercial flights, it serves as a tranquil retreat accessible exclusively by private plane. The island’s crystal-clear waters, abundant with marine life, offer ideal snorkeling conditions, particularly around the notorious sunken plane wreck —a C-46 Commando, a large twin-engine transport plane once used for troop and cargo transportation— now a historic artifact of the island.

2. Tiwi Islands, Australia

Situated off the northern coast of Australia, the Tiwi Islands represent a rich cultural and ecological haven. Access is granted through Bathurst Island’s airport, which features a sealed runway not suitable for larger commercial planes. This seclusion has safeguarded the islands’ breathtaking natural landscapes. Visitors have the unique opportunity to connect with local communities, participate in traditional art workshops, and discover the pristine habitats of the islands, all facilitated by the exclusivity of private air travel.

3. St-Moritz, Switzerland

A haven for winter sports enthusiasts, St-Moritz in Switzerland promises luxury and adventure. Its regional airport, Samedan, offers a gateway to the alpine wonderland but is not serviced by scheduled flights as it presents a challenging approach for big aircrafts. Arriving by private jet not only eases access to St-Moritz’s world-renowned ski slopes but also opens the door to high-end shopping, gourmet dining, and the glamor of winter galas in this elegant town.

4. Lanai, Hawaii

Lanai, part of the Hawaiian archipelago in the Pacific Ocean, is distinguished as Hawaii’s hidden paradise. With no direct commercial flights, the island remains an untouched haven of tranquility, only accessible to private fliers or those willing to navigate a ferry from Maui. Lanai offers unique landscapes, from the lunar-like Garden of the Gods to the plush greens of two championship golf courses, providing a tranquil retreat for discerning travelers seeking privacy and peace.

These destinations showcase the incomparable access private flying offers to the world’s most hidden and exclusive spots. Beyond the efficiency and comfort of private jets lies the opportunity to explore secluded corners of the globe, where adventure, beauty and relaxation await those seeking experiences untainted by mass tourism.
