When you think of vacation, I’m guessing you picture summertime, beaches, and tropical drinks – but don’t count winter out for a fab vacay! Winter offers ample opportunity, with many long holiday weekends, to fit in a quick weekend getaway.
With the hustle and bustle of the holidays behind us and the New Year here, you may already be thinking ahead to the long weekends around MLK Day, President’s Day, and Spring breaks in March or April. These long weekends might not offer enough space to travel commercial – with layovers, transfers, lines, and crowds. But, private charters cut out the crowds and lines, making a quick winter long-weekend trip possible!
Why not book a private charter for a long weekend winter getaway? Spend more quality time with your partner, family, or friends instead of spending your time in lines and crowds at commercial airlines. Maximize your time spent on the slopes enjoying your holiday by minimizing the time you spend in the air.
Here are 5 Popular Winter Getaway Locations that you can turn into an enjoyable long weekend with a private charter flight.
