Add a touch of magic to your holiday flight. Whether you’re flying a private jet for business or pleasure, small details will make your flight merry and cozy. The key to decorating a private jet for the holidays is to keep it simple yet meaningful, because flight attendants must pack away anything that dangles or takes up extra space before takeoff and landing.

Holiday Décor Inspiration for a Private Jet

  • Lighting: Rather than string strands of lights throughout the cabin, ask the flight attendants to change the LED headboard lights to holiday colors.
  • Welcome mat: Switch out the traditional mat at the bottom of the airstairs and replace it with a holiday-themed mat. Base the type of mat you choose on the age of those flying with you. Sometimes a simple red-colored or plaid-patterned mat is all you need to spread holiday cheer.
  • Holiday linens: Replace the hand towels in the lavatory with towels that are hand-embroidered with fir trees, a snowflake, or a sprig of ivy or mistletoe in one corner. Use a green tablecloth with a red table runner and napkins. If the flight is long and traveler plan to sleep, stock the private jet with red and white bed linens.
  • Holiday table: Swap out traditional flowers in a vase for white amaryllis in a birch-bark vase paired with short fir tree branches. If the travelers are lighthearted, they may also enjoy holiday-themed metallic confetti spread along the table runner. Then use matching red and white vintage Currier & Ives transferware plates, bowls and teacups to tie the look together.
  • Music: Base the type of holiday music played on ages and preferences of your fellow travelers. If you aren’t sure about their personal tastes, play it safe with soft instrumental music.
