Premiere Private Jet Charter Company Pairs Up with Leading Jamaican Boutique Resort Collection to Provide Travelers with an Authentic Bond Experience
Magellan Jets and Island Outpost have announced the Ultimate Bond Adventure Experience to Jamaica. The package will include private charter through Island Outposts’ preferred private jet charter company, Magellan Jets, to the exclusive Ian Fleming International Airport in Jamaica, and accommodations at GoldenEye and Strawberry Hill. A variety of perks will be included to ensure that this will be the ultimate Bond adventure experience.
Bond knows how to travel in style and this package delivers all of the necessary elements to live like 007. Private jets and helicopters were the preferred mode of transportation on all Bond films, so the Ultimate James Bond Adventure Experience will begin on a private jet, chartered by Magellan Jets. And for the most Bond-worthy end to the trip, guests will depart Jamaica aboard their Magellan Jet from Ian Fleming International Airport (IFIA), exclusively for private jets and scheduled charters, and less than 3 miles from GoldenEye.
GoldenEye has been the low key hub of cool since
James Bond author Ian Fleming first built the lush estate in the town of Oracabessa on Jamaica’s North coast in the 1950s. For decades, this hideaway played host to the glitterati and literati – writers, musicians and heads of state. Now owned by Jamaica-raised Chris Blackwell, the visionary entrepreneur and founder of Island Records, he has ensured that the relaxed allure of Ian Fleming’s GoldenEye endures. Set along the pristine coast, among lush tropical gardens and around the calm waters of the property’s lagoon and secluded beaches, the 52-acre estate now encompasses 20 units – 9 Beach Villas, two Lagoon Villas, six Lagoon Cottages and one Ocean Front Villa. Guests can also book Fleming’s own private three-bedroom villa – with two guest cottages – where his writing desk still stands just as he left it.
Located in the heart of one of the world’s most famous coffee-producing mountain ranges, Jamaica’s Blue Mountains, Strawberry Hill Hotel & Spa opened on October 18 following an extensive refurbishment of the property. Listed in the New York Times #1 bestselling book,
1,000 Places To See Before You Die, Strawberry Hill is 3100 feet above sea level and features one of the most awe-inspiring views of the Blue Mountains in one direction as well as the city of Kingston in the other. On a clear day, one can see up to 40 miles from the property’s infinity-edge pool, and at night the city far below becomes a twinkling mirror of the night sky.
The James Bond Experience:
Private jet charter through Magellan Jets to Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston
Gourmet Jamaican-style catering on-board
Bond-themed gift baskets on-board
2 nights’ stay at Strawberry Hill
Helicopter transfer to GoldenEye
3 nights’ accommodations at GoldenEye
Dinner for two at Gazebo at GoldenEye
Cocktails for two at Firefly, Noel Coward’s historic hilltop home at GoldenEye
Two massages at Strawberry Hill
Private jet charter though Magellan Jets to Ian Fleming International Airport to the destination of their choosing.
007 in Jamaica:
Book a Magellan private jet to GoldenEye for a stay four nights or more and receive a $200 resort credit and private kayak safari tour for two.
Book a Magellan private jet to Strawberry Hill for a stay four nights or more and receive a $200 resort credit.
Magellan Jets and Island Outpost can accommodate parties of up to 10 people for this package. Rates for the Fleming Villa start at US$5,500. Midsize Jet pricing is $5,300 per hour round trip. Full pricing based on specific dates and departure cities available upon request.
Magellan Jets will offer those flying privately to Jamaica to stay at GoldenEye a one-time special offer of their fixed Voyager Membership rates:
This package can be purchased by calling Magellan Jets at 877-550-JETS. For more information, visit

Many travelers fail to take into account the leap in time zones and the toll it can take on your body’s internal clock. Flying from the US to Europe, East Coast to West Coast or vise versa can switch your wristwatch three to nine hours. Your body says, "Hey, what's going on here?" Jet lag can cause some very unpleasant effects such as fatigue, insomnia, poor concentration, confusion, hunger at inappropriate times or lack of appetite, and general malaise and irritability.
Here are some tips to help you avoid jet lag and enjoy your time once you’ve stepped off your private jet:
Charter a Private Jet-
Of course the first step to help avoid jet lag is to fly on a private plane. Unlike commercial airline travel, private jets allow passengers to consume food on the time zone of their destination. Flying privately also provides passengers plenty of legroom to stretch out in the cabin and move about freely—keeping the blood flow circulating helps to avoid jet lag. Another benefit to private jets is that many of them feature 100 percent fresh air in their air circulation systems. Having fresh air in your cabin will allow for better sleep and all around better experience.
Stay hydrated throughout the flight by drinking plenty of water and avoiding caffeine and alcohol, which can disrupt sleeping schedules and further dehydrate your body. Dehydration can intensify the effects of jet lag.
Set Your Watch to Local Time-
As soon as the cabin doors shut, you should set your watch to local time of your destination. It is very important to internalize the time and regardless of what time it is where you are, focus on what time it is where you are going and live according to that time. (Example- if it is 1am where you are going - sleep, if its 1 pm work, watch tv, read) Private aircraft are equipped with reclining, spacious seats; depending on aircraft type, many have staterooms and queen beds. Giving you the ability to comfortably rest your eyes if the time zone calls for it.
Always Bring Something Comfortable to Wear-
Some tracksuit pants, sport socks, anything that looks like pajamas. You can always change on the plane right before you land. Avoid
wearing anything that will cut off your circulation. Luckily on a private aircraft you have the ability to move around and even do some yoga moves! That will also help keep your blood flowing.
In recent years, overflight routing opportunities above Cuba have slightly changed. It is important that flights flown for business purposes, charters, and even corporate aircraft are aware of current permit requirements and air way options. While obtaining a Cuban Overflight Permit is a generally basic process, here are a few tips for private jet travelers to make the procedure even more seamless. 1. Are overflight permits required for Cuba?
Overflight permits are necessary for private non-revenue and charter (non-scheduled commercial) flights on most routes. Permits are valid for the Zulu day requested, and operators may overfly Cuba using any valid airway. The only notable Cuba permit change in recent years has been that Cuban authorities no longer apply the three “corridors” that were used in the past to transit north and south. There are now certain routes through Cuban airspace where overflight permits are not required. These include B646, UB646, B879, UB879, G765, UG765 and B764 or UB764.
2. Are there restrictions in east-west or west-east overflights?
Now that flights do not have to follow one of the “corridors” that were previously in place, it’s possible to overfly Cuba east-west (or vice versa). While operators now have access to east-west and west-east overflights on approved airways, keep in mind that use of J-routes will not be permitted by Cuban Air Traffic Control (ATC).
3. Are permits processed using a call sign or an aircraft tail number?
Crews will need to use their call sign when transiting Cuban airspace if the permit was obtained using a call sign. The same is applied to permits obtained using a tail number. It’s important to be consistent in permit filings. When making permit revisions with the Cuban Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), always use the aircraft reference (either call sign or tail number) that was submitted on the original permit request and be sure to include a complete schedule from the original request.
4. What are lead time requirements?
According to the Cuban aeronautical information publication (AIP), a lead time of 48 hours is required to obtain an overflight permit. Short-notice applications are often possible – even on weekends and holidays – when working with a 3rd-party provider. It’s at the CAA’s discretion, however, to approve any short-notice request within the official lead time, unless the 3rd-party provider can offer a block permit.
5. What information is required for a Cuban overflight permit?
You’ll need to provide the operator name and address, aircraft type, registry, maximum takeoff weight (MTOW) and schedule. No aircraft documentation is necessary.
6. Are there advantages to using a 3rd-party provider for Cuban overflight permits?
Due to economic sanctions, Cuba CAA cannot be paid for overflight permits from a U.S. bank. Therefore, arrangements through a 3rd-party provider are suggested. Working with a 3rd-party provider is especially helpful if you need to make changes or permit revisions while traveling.
7. What are other tips to consider with Cuban overflights?
It’s recommended not to request Cuban overflight permits more than two weeks in advance. For multiple overflights of Cuba, it’s best to request all permits at one time. Keep in mind that Cuba overflight permits can be set up on a monthly basis.

Since the beginning of time every self-respecting gadget geek has dreamed of flying as free as a bird via a workable jetpack. Today, that dream is a reality. The Martin Jetpack, which was showcased at Idex in February, is a collaboration between Emirates Advanced Research and Technology Holding (Earth), Khalifa University and the New Zealand-based Martin Aircraft Company.
It uses sophisticated composites and a highly efficient propulsion system to achieve the goal of personal flight, with many safety features including a ballistic parachute. Originally made for military use, such as search and rescue and police force, there is a civilian version that can travel at a cruising speed of 100kph and reach heights of 1,500 meters.
Why use a private jet when you could flight yourself there with a jetpack? Joking, of course, this beast of a machine only allows you 30 minutes of flight time and be careful not to go too high when your time is almost up. The new Martin Jetpack is priced at $86,000 and is the world's first commercially available personal flying machine.

Boston's Logan airport remains closed in the aftermath of the blizzard Friday and Saturday. The storm, named Nemo, dumped as much as 28" of snow on some parts of Massachusetts with wind gusts up to 85 mph. The FAA closed Logan airport around 1:30PM on Friday, and it will remain closed until 11:00PM on Saturday night to allow ground crews time to clear off runways, taxiways, and ramps.
Other Boston area airports remain closed as well, including Bedford (KBED), Norwood (KOWD) and Beverly (KBVY). New York area airports like Teterboro (KTEB) and White Plains (KHPN) remain open, but there is still a lot of snow and ice on the taxiways and ramps making for slow going on the ground.
Magellan's Flight Support team is continuing to monitor the situation as the Northeast begins the process of digging out from this blizzard. Please call us at 877-550-5387 or contact us

Chartering an aircraft for your transportation and business needs definitely adds value to your time. There are serveral benefits accompanied with choosing a private jet rather than opting for commercial airline services. A few of those benefits include a flight itinerary suited to your schedule rather than an airlines needs, and the ability to fly into an airport closer to your destination. With a commercial airline you’re very limited on airport choices. You can also expect luxurious travel conditions on board a private aircraft. You won’t be sharing your cabin space with a crying baby or obnoxious passenger assigned next to you, which makes traveling much more enjoyable. On board, you’ll have privacy and amenities to relax or finish up a business meeting.
Cessna Aircraft Company explains it best in this short video displaying a side-by-side perspective of two businessmen with the same destination. One of the men are assigned to a commercial flight and the other a private charter. Observe for yourself the benefits of flying private.
Valentine’s Day is almost upon us and what better way to show your significant other that you love them then by whisking them away in a Private Jet to one of these top 5 romantic destinations? While we understand that every couple has a different idea of “romantic getaway”- - It might be the excitement of exploring a new city, or soaking up the sun on an excluded beach somewhere- - these romantic destinations include something for everyone.
SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA
The Bay, the architecture, landscapes and atmosphere make "San Fran" a must for romantic travel. Take in the massive Golden Gate Bridge during a foggy morning, visit Fisherman's Wharf and explore PIER 39, a festival marketplace with more than 110 stores and 14 bay-view restaurants. On a clear day, the view of the San Francisco skyline from Treasure Island is unparalleled. Time it right and enjoy a beautiful sunset while you take in the views. San Francisco sunsets are best in the winter, when the sky gets nice colors as the sun goes down. How romantic!
Rockland, ME might be known as “Lobster Capital of The World”, but it can also be described as one of Maine's finest coastal cities. It is world famous for its shore, both mountainous and rocky, that is littered with hundreds of harbors and inlets. This beautiful coastal paradise is the perfect getaway to sweep your sweetie right off their feet!
NAPA VALLEY, CALIFORNIA
Brimming with rolling vineyards, cozy wine caverns and luxurious hotels, this wine-lover's paradise is the ultimate romantic getaway. The legendary valley has all the right ingredients for romance: charming inns and luxurious resorts, some of the best dining in America, sybaritic spas, and of course fine wines. While wine, food and chocolate are popular with female visitors, so is shopping. The valley offers a wide selection, from clothes, jewelry and shoes to world-class art. Napa Valley as all the ingredients for a memorable Valentine’s Day getaway!
Savannah’s quiet dignity and welcoming hospitality make it an ideal choice for a romantic getaway. Savannah is full of so much southern charm; it is hard not to fall in love with it. Spanish moss hangs over sidewalks, which lead past hundreds of historic homes. The town seems years apart from its neighboring cities, and locals have no desire to change that. Sitting on a bench in one of the parks, inhaling the aromas of the flowers around you and watching the horse drawn carriages slide by is one of life’s real pleasures.
US VIRGIN ISLANDS
You and your lover can pick between an adventurous getaway to St. Thomas, a tranquil retreat to St. John, or a secluded stay on St. Croix. Soft white sand beaches, pristine snorkeling, and exploring the preserved natural Caribbean forest make for an unforgettable vacation.
