From 1 June, guests travelling to Singita Sabi Sand lodges in South Africa can now make use of a newly launched private jet service, with Federal Airlines offering direct non-stop access from O.R. Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg.
The experience begins on the tarmac at ORTIA, where guests are personally met airside as they disembark their commercial flight.
A VIP passport control counter ensures that guests are fast-tracked through this process and transported to the Federal Airlines terminal in a luxury transfer vehicle.
Boarding the jet for the direct 35-minute flight to the Sabi Sand takes place directly from the lounge.
Depending on the number of guests travelling together, both a nine-seater Cessna Citation Excel and a four-seater Cessna Citation Mustang are available on this routing.
Apart from providing a more comfortable and luxurious option for guests, the introduction of this service also reduces flying time considerably.
Guests will be travelling straight to Singita’s airstrip without any stops en route for half an hour.
For those who wish to travel on to Singita Kruger National Park or combine both locations as part of their Singita safari experience, a 20-minute hop in a Cessna Caravan can be easily arranged.
Jet charters to Cape Town and Singita Pamushana Lodge are also available for those travelling further afield.
