Charter a 5 Star Incentive to the Guadeloupe Islands for Your Next Group Trip

by Karen 28. March 2014

Has the thought of being surrounded by millions of tourists and street vendors hawking their wares made your group shy away from chartering a heavy jet to the Caribbean? If so, you might want to give the destination another look. There are still places where groups can go to enjoy a less touristy experience. The Guadeloupe Islands are one of them:

Classified as a region of France, there are actually five islands in the group. They are Grande-Terre, Basse-Terre, LLes des Saintes, Marie-Galante and La Desirade. To get to them, you’ll want to charter a heavy jet to Grande-Terre. Considered to be one of the main islands, it is home to the Pointe-a-Pitre International Airport. The airport is well maintained and offers groups’ access to rental cars, gourmet restaurants, bars, shops and banks.

Once on Grande-Terre, your group may opt to enjoy the sights or take a ferry ride to the other islands. It should be stated though that Grande-Terre has plenty of diversions to keep a group busy. The stunning, and often uncrowded, beaches are some of them. Of the four plus beaches on the island, Plage du Helleux and Plage de la Chappelle a Anse-Bertrand tend to the most serene. The other popular beaches are best suited for those comfortable with crowds and or public nudity.

If your group does decide to venture off Grande-Terre, consider heading to Marie-Galante. It’s a superb place to sample some rum or small punch at one of the island’s distilleries. Afterward, your group may enjoy exploring the Chateau Murat ruins and the Notre Dame de Marie Galante church or snorkeling at Anse Taliseronde.

To learn more about chartering a heavy jet to destinations like the Guadeloupe Islands, please contact us at (877) 535-9624. We make it a point to provide groups a mix of heavy jet options, including those that include 5-star services.

Aircraft Charters to NYC: 5 Annual Spring Events for Women’s Groups

by Karen 3. March 2014

Is your women’s group tired of traveling to the same old spring destinations? If so, why not venture off to NYC via an aircraft charter and enjoy one of the Big Apple’s great spring events? There are several that take place each year during the months of March, April and May.

NY Botanical Garden’s Orchid Show (March & April)

One of the big events is the NY Botanical Garden’s Orchid Show. It’s anticipated to run from March 1st through April 21st this year. Subsequent, thematic floral events will take place through early September. The Orchid Show traditionally includes both day and evening events. Special exhibits and programs are also available in abundance. However, because they are so popular, it’s best to reserve access to those activities well in advance.

Macy’s Flower Show (March & April)

The New York Botanical Garden isn’t the only NYC venue hosting a spring floral event. The Macy’s in Herald Square typically hosts one or two as well. In 2014, look for one of the events to begin March 23rd and run through April 6th. The second is set to start on March 30th and end on April 13th. This year’s themes are expected to be secret gardens and cherry blossoms. As always, great guided tours and floral displays are slated to be a part of the annual celebrations.

Cherry Blossom Festival (April)

If your women’s group hasn’t reached its fill of spring flowers just yet, NYC’s Annual Cherry Blossom Festival may help matters along. It generally kicks off towards the end of April at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Over the course of two days, attendees get to enjoy live entertainment, showy floral displays, games and exhibits. This year, it’s slated to go down April 26th and 27th.

Spring for Music (May)

Attending the Annual Spring for Music event is a fabulous way for women’s groups to welcome the season too. In 2014, it’s scheduled to take place at Carnegie Hall from May 5th through May 10th. Each night, a different orchestra is expected to perform. A few of the groups on tap are the Seattle Symphony, the Winnipeg Symphony and the New York Philharmonic.

9th Ave. Intl. Food Festival (May)

Finally, your women’s group may also enjoy the Annual 9th Avenue International Food Festival. It runs May 17th and 18th and encompasses several blocks. They’ll be plenty of live entertainment and foods on offer. Best of all, admission to the event is free of charge.

To attend these annual NYC events in March and learn more about aircraft charters, please contact us at Miami Air International. Our private aircraft charters can help women’s groups that have 168 members or less travel the world in supreme comfort.

 

Charter Big Planes and Celebrate the Holidays in Phoenix, Arizona

by Karen 13. November 2013

Situated in the Grand Canyon State is the 6th largest city in the country, Phoenix. Although it is a great place to visit year round, the winter months are particularly pleasurable. That’s because it’s the time of year when Arizona’s residents break out the holiday finery. With that in mind, you may want to charter big planes with us and celebrate the holidays in Phoenix.

One celebratory activity to enjoy while you’re there is the Annual Las Noches de Las Luminarias. It takes place all December long at the Desert Botanical Garden on North Galvin Parkway. During the annual event, the garden grounds are adorned with stunning luminaries. Live musical entertainment, festive bell ringers and onsite dining are typically on offer too. This year should be exceptionally wonderful because the facility will be commemorating its 75th anniversary at the same time.

Of course the Annual Las Noches de Las Luminarias won’t be the only winter event taking place in Phoenix. The Arizona Latino Arts & Cultural Center will be holding its Annual Christmas Celebration and Mercado as well. It’s a street fair type of event and typically takes place on Adams Street. Activities on offer include listening to live music, dancing, shopping for gifts and sampling ethnic cuisine.

There are also several places to go ice skating in Phoenix. They include the Desert Ridge Marketplace on North Tatum Boulevard and the CitySkate Holiday Ice Rink on East Washington Street. Both places offer ice skate rentals. Because it’s completely free, the marketplace site is the best place to go if you are hoping to save a few bucks. They tend to hold complimentary, holiday story hours at that location too. The CitySkate managers, on the other hand, generally charge a modest admission fee. However, there’s also a large holiday tree to gaze at and onsite refreshments available.

For more details on chartering big planes to enjoy the best of Phoenix’s winter offerings, please contact us. At Miami Air International, we have both 737-400s and 737-800s in our fleet. So we can accommodate groups up to 168 people on one plane.
