Art Tours in Asia

In no region of the world does private jet travel make more sense than in Asia. With limited commercial routing and low volume of connections, it is significantly easier and more efficient to travel private jet or helicopter, nor is there more compelling reason to do so than in Asia. Private air transfers can provide significant efficiency for visiting countries like Myanmar and Bhutan, which have limited commercial flights and entry points, as well as a poor road infrastructure that make overland travel time consuming and a rough going. Helicopter transfers will also maximize your time in cities like Bangkok with its legendary traffic, while providing stunning views over places such as Halong Bay. Private jets and large body state-of-the-art come in a variety of customized configurations, including luxury jets outfitted with every conceivable amenity.

Helicopter Transfers and Tours

There's no better reason to hire a helicopter in the region than for airport transfers, which combine convenience but also a flyover of your destination, and in some cases, such as Tokyo, can be less expensive than an airport limousine.

For Tokyo's Narita Airport, Hong Kong, and Bangkok, let us arrange your transfer in the sky and if you've come with the children, you may be staying at the Peninsula which we recommend for families and boasts its own rooftop heliports. Of course, a Bangkok helicopter tour, or over Angkor, Tokyo or Hong Kong can be arranged for both day or night flyovers.

Vietnam Helicopter Charter & Tours

EC135 Vietnam helicopter charter

Whether for business or touring, helicopter transfers in Vietnam can save time-consuming airport check-ins or transfers over rigorous roads. For example, a flight to Halong Bay reduces a three-hour drive to 45 minutes, followed by lunch and a one-hour aerial tour of one of the world's most stunning geographic formations. There are three helicopter options in Vietnam that we recommend, 4-seat Airbus EC 120 Colibri with maximum range of 240 nautical miles, Eurocopter (Airbus) EC135 helicopter (above), which can sit 5-6 passengers with a range of approximately 300 nautical miles, and for larger groups, a Eurocopter EC155 B1 (below) with capacity of 10-12 passengers and range of approximately nautical 500 miles. For helicopter tours, please inquire.

Helicopter transit is not limited to Halong Bay, but also for reaching Mai Chau, Hang Son Doong, the world's largest cave, located in Vietnam, Hue and Danang on Vietnam's central coast (below), and Saigon with the Mekong Delta.
