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 Miami Air Flights to the World’s Championship BBQ Contest in Houston

by Admin 3. February 2014

When it comes to the best Texas barbecue on the planet, there is often no better place to find it than the Annual World’s Championship BBQ Contest. Held in Houston each year, it’s a mouthwatering affair known to attract thousands of cue connoisseurs from across the globe. Should you and your group of foodie friends want to join them in 2014, a charter Miami Air flight is the perfect way to get there:


The renowned, annual barbecue event is expected to take place this year from February 27th through March 1st at Reliant Park. The Annual Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo is scheduled to follow the event and run until March 23rd. So your group may want to stick around a bit and visit the rodeo too.


Our charter Miami Air flights can depart from whichever U.S. location you choose and transport your group to the airport in Houston. Car, taxi and shuttle services are available from the airport to the Wyndham Houston Medical Center Hotel & Suites. It’s located on Main Street and often offers substantial discounts to those who make their reservations well in advance.


Furthermore, the hotel offers free parking to its overnight guests and is located within walking distance of the METRORail Station. The METRORail is slated to offer transportation to and from the World’s Championship BBQ Contest and the subsequent rodeo for all comers. Thus, your group won’t have to necessarily hire private ground transportation. Of course if you do want to secure private, chauffeured transportation there are many companies available that would be more than willing to oblige your group’s desires.


In addition to the World’s Championship BBQ Contest, live music, family entertainment and a public food tent are also expected to be available onsite. So your group will be able to soak up the event’s intoxicating aromas, flavors, sights and sounds in comfort.
