DC Aviation, Germany’s leading business jet operator is once again this year partnering with Hapag-Lloyd Cruises, headquartered in Hamburg, Germany. All Hapag-Lloyd Sky Cruises between December 2011 and June 2012 will be conducted with an Airbus A319 CJ from DC Aviation carrying the name “Albert Ballin”.
The Airbus A319 CJ has a range of up to 8,000 kilometers, or 8.5 hours of nonstop flight. The spacious cabin provides premium Business Class seating for 42 passengers. The seats feature individually-adjustable head, feet, and leg rests and are spaced at a generous distance of 152 centimeters. They are arranged in pairs and upholstered with the finest Alcantara. Their special, ergonomically-formed backrests provide the highest level of comfort, thus guaranteeing passengers of DC Aviation a relaxing travel experience even on extended and overnight flights. All pilots possess a single type rating and flight attendants certified by a “VIP Excellence Program” provide exclusive service on board the aircraft.
By chartering an individual jet from DC Aviation, Hapag-Lloyd Cruises is capable of offering extraordinary routes to cities and places of interest that could otherwise not be combined through normal scheduled flights. Hapag-Lloyd Cruises is offering its guests four new routes with the jet from DC Aviation: the “New Year” Sky Cruise to India, the Maldives, and Oman, to Central America in February, to the northern countries of Africa in March and along the routes of the Silk Road in May. Additionally, Hapag-Lloyd Cruises utilizes the corporate jet from DC Aviation on short three to six-day “Teaser Sky Cruises” as well as exclusive Theme Sky Cruises that feature golf, enjoyment, and all things classical.
