Crystal AirCruises added a new aircraft to its fleet at Boeing Field in Seattle, Wash. August 1. The Crystal Skye is a Boeing 777-200LR that will be the largest privately owned tour jet in the world, the company said.
“We are ecstatic to welcome Crystal Skye to the family, as she marks the beginning of a new chapter and realm of luxury travel for guests who seek the unmatched Crystal Experience,” said Edie Rodriguez, Crystal CEO and president. “As we embark on new global adventures with Crystal Skye, we are inspired by the shared vision of our own experts and those at Greenpoint Technologies, who brought this sky-high dream to fruition.”
The jet can accommodate up to 88 guests and has a non-stop range of 19.5 hours. Features include seats that convert to lie-flat beds, a lounge with stand-up bar, two state-of-the-art galleys and an expansive wine cellar.
The project was a collaboration with Greenpoint Technologies, which designed exclusive features like a 24-seat lounge, custom ceilings, stone veneers and colored LED lighting
“Our goal for this program was to create a luxurious interior showcasing the elegant brand Crystal has established with their cruise ships, yachts, and riverboats,” said Bret Neely, Executive Vice President at Greenpoint Technologies. “Greenpoint is a company built on Teamwork. Both internally and externally with our customers. It was amazing to see the combined core team come together to focus on Crystal’s guest experience, resulting in the beautiful and functional interior we see today.”
