It’s never too early to look ahead to the top global events of 2023, especially when private aviation demand is booming. While private jet providers will do everything necessary to accommodate passengers’ needs, companies like Exquisite Air Charter actively advise to plan accordingly in order to deliver every specific requirement – from aircraft selection to inflight amenities.
What are the major ceremonies and festivals to land a private jet in the upcoming months? Los Angeles-based private jet company Exquisite Air Charter has prepared a list of the top locations based on requests and bookings, with a mix of music, art and even politics.
The World Economic Forum, Jan 16 – Jan 20
The World Economic Forum held in Davos, Switzerland, allows world leaders an opportunity to debate the state of the world and shape partnerships and policies for the crucial period ahead. Private aviation is a popular choice for those attending and St. Gallen–Altenrhein Airport is the closest option to the location, roughly an hour away by car.
Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, Apr 14 – Apr 23
One of the most anticipated events in the industry, Coachella had major headliners in 2022, including Swedish House Mafia, Billie Eilish and Harry Styles. Frank Ocean is confirmed for the 2023 edition and others will follow shortly. With more than 250,000 people in attendance, it is one of the largest and most established musical festivals in the United States and the world. The Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, is the venue, with Palm Springs International Airport as the closest terminal to land a private jet.
Cannes Film Festival, May 16 – May 27
This yearly film festival held in beautiful Cannes, France, previews new films of all categories, including documentaries from all around the world. It is the most popular of its kind in Europe, although the Venice Film Festival in Italy and the Berlin International Film Festival in Germany are also well-established. Cannes – Mandelieu Airport is conveniently located just 10 minutes from the city center, the yearly go-to terminal for the festival.
Art Basel Miami, Jun 15 – Jun 18
Art Basel is an international art fair held yearly in Basel, Switzerland, Miami Beach, and Hong Kong. The Florida edition is North America's most comprehensive international contemporary art fair with over 250 galleries from 35 countries showcasing creations by more than 4,000 artists. It is held annually at the Miami Beach Convention Center. Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport is the best option to land a private jet when attending the event.
Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, Aug 20
Considered the top event of its kind, as well as one of the most respected car festivals in the globe, the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance is a charity event held annually at the Pebble Beach Golf Links in California. Both prewar and postwar collector cars are judged for authenticity, function, history, and style, a scene reserved only for amazing cars and great collectors. Monterey Regional Airport is 10 just miles from the venue.
Private aviation avoids packed commercial airports by landing as close as possible to the destination. That flexibility and overall comfort is the main reason why chartering a private jet to enjoy the top events in the world is the most convenient decision, especially when flying to remote locations without regular commercial air connections.
Last but not least, passengers can control to a large extent their travel experience, from arrival to landing, also deciding whether to fly with family, friends or pets, what to eat midair, and the type of aircraft required for your group to enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
