In a recent article, Forbes contributor Mike Espindle detailed the “seamless, safe, and sumptuous” experience available to private travelers through the partnership between Magellan Jets and IYC, and the excellent benefit to customers that the collaboration’s combination of private jets and super yachts provides.
Magellan partnered with IYC, one of the premier leaders in the yachting sector and the operator of the largest charter yacht fleet in the world, to further enhance our clients’ travel experiences. Now that the world is reopening, the collaboration to provide customers the best in private aviation and yachting couldn’t be more fitting; as Espindle writes, “the partnership is timed perfectly as leisure travel, with a degree of security and reassurance, is once again on the table.”
The trip began with a private, Magellan Jets-arranged flight from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to Nassau, followed by several days of exploration of The Bahamas aboard IYC’s stunning Loon luxury yacht. As the Forbes piece notes, the two companies’ mutual commitment to safety, security, and excellent customer service is apparent long before take off:
With a double-dose of customer service from two companies that live and die by it, the pre-trip process was easy and elegant. A detailed, but fun, questionnaire that gathered our group’s cruising and activity preferences (even some we hadn’t thought about) arrived beforehand from IYC. And similar pre-flight preferences were gathered by Magellan Jets, who also informed us about our flight details and expertly handled ground transportation needs. Magellan also handled the moving target of the Bahama’s health security system for us…again, easy and elegant.
Espindle detailed the experience of flying on a Cessna Citation X with Magellan, highlighting the speed and efficiency the impressive jet provides:
We were boarded, seated, and wheels up on the impressively equipped jet in less time than you’d spend in a very short business-class security check line at a commercial airport. On-board amenities included more beverages, fresh fruit and cheese, and charcuterie. However, as one of the fastest private jets on the market, our opportunity to enjoy the leather-clad interior and gracious seating of the Citation X only totaled about 28 minutes. We were on the ground in Nassau before you knew it. And isn’t that the most desirable luxury of all? A speedy entry with a dedicated medical screener from the Bahamian government at the Jet Nassau private jet facility at Lynden Pindling International Airport had us en route to The Loon in minutes.
