Forget what you know about traveling the world in 80 days and its medley of challenges. Passport to the World, the newest collaboration between private-jet company Flexjet and award-winning travel outfitter Abercrombie & Kent, offers adventurers a premier opportunity to circumnavigate the globe by private jet.

The 14-day itinerary takes up to eight people aboard a dedicated Challenger 605 aircraft, stopping in seven celebrated cities. The setup allows guests to travel with just their intimate group (versus people they don’t know) and to leave on dates that work best with their schedules instead of pre-planned departures.

In Japan, shop stores in the Nishi-Umeda district of Osaka and dine at Kyoto’s Michelin three-star restaurant Arashiyama Kitcho. In China, learn tai chi from a resident master at the Temple of Heaven in Beijing and cruise Hong Kong’s famed Victoria Harbor at sunset. India brings the Taj Mahal in Agra; a private tour of Istanbul’s Hagia Sophia museum marks Turkey; and Paris offers after-hours access to the Louvre.

“One-of-a-kind travel experiences are the new luxury,” says Flexjet president Deanna White. “We’ve created a turnkey solution to an incredible private-jet experience our owners would never be able to plan on their own. There is no limit to the unique offerings we can craft.” From $1.5 million; 800-554-7016; abercrombiekent.com.
