Our group will travel from one splendid location to the next in a private Boeing 757. These jets are specially-outfitted to provide unmatched flexibility, elite comfort, and long-range capabilities. Each personalized aircraft can land in smaller airports and gives us the ability to create our own schedule. We fly directly, in luxury, without layovers or the many other hassles of standard air travel. TCS & Starquest jets carry 78 travelers comfortably in spacious two-by-two, VIP-style leather seats. For comparison, standard Boeing 757 jets hold 233 passengers. Our guests experience one of the best crew-to-traveler ratios in the air: one to five.
