Welcome 2015 somewhere exciting and new! There are many ways to ring in the New Year and the world’s cultures offer varied ways of celebrating and private jet charter can get you there. Pick a spot with just the right level of fanfare to suit your inner party animal. Here are five very different options for saying Auld Lang Syne to 2014 and hello to 2015. All locations are easily accessed via private jet travel so you can celebrate the New Year’s holiday with convenient travel arrangements, so you can focus on what matters: your celebration. Happy New Year!
New York City
Ring in the New Year while attending one of the most famous performances in the US. The New Year’s Eve Gala with the New York City Philharmonic is an iconic event aired live on PBS every year. Lincoln Center will be decked to the nines with holiday lights and glitter. Break out your winter clothes, charter a private jet and join the Manhattan holiday scene in all its splendor.
How does a breathtaking lighted boat parade on Sydney Harbour sound? Spectacular fireworks? More than a million people will gather in Sydney, Australia to be among the first to usher in 2015. For an unforgettable front row seat, grab tickets for one of the city’s best events with a view-we suggest the Royal Botanic Gardens or the La Boheme gala at the Opera House. And if you think the flight is too long- the amenities and luxury of your own private jet will make you happy to make the trip.
New Orleans, Louisiana
Famous for throwing a party, the Big Easy rings in the New Year with music, food and your basic NOLA revelry. The place to be: Jackson Square, where Baby New Year drops from the top of Jax Brewery at midnight while fireworks scatter over the Mississippi River. Book a steamboat cruise for prime viewing and afterword laissez les bon temps roulez with all-night revelry in the French Quarter.
What began as a marketing ploy by grape growers following a bumper harvest in the early 20th century, the “eating of grapes” is now a beloved New Year’s Eve tradition in Barcelona, Spain. When the clock strikes midnight on Nochevieja (Old Night), you must eat one grape per chime, with each grape signifying good luck for the twelve months of the upcoming new year. You will see Barcelonans dressed in bright costumes celebrating in the main plazas and after midnight fireworks have exploded the real party starts in the city’s bars and taverns. Music, dancing, tapas, and sparkling cava wine keep the festivities going till dawn. If you manage to stay up that long, head to the beach in the morning to watch the sunrise with churros and hot chocolate.
For a slightly more laid back New Year’s experience, charter a private jet to the Bahamas to lose the winter chill and celebrate like the islanders do. Junkanoo takes place on New Year’s Day and is one of the cultural gems of Bahamian culture. The festival of Junkanoo includes music, dancing, and costume parading. Also, don’t miss the traditional New Year’s Regatta festival featuring the local sloop style sail boats in Montagu Bay. Get some san between your toes this winter and ring in 2015 beachside!
