Jet off to hot events

New Straits Times - - Jom! -

YEAR 2017 is yet an­other year that of­fers a great va­ri­ety of pres­ti­gious events. From Monaco to As­tana, the list of not-to-be-missed events in­cludes pres­ti­gious sport races, busi­ness fo­rums and fash­ion shows. “But flights for events like the Grand Prix pe­riod are usu­ally fully booked hal­fyear or even more be­fore. Those who aren’t plan­ning for­ward but still want to make it to the event al­ter­na­tively choose fly­ing pri­vate. It is one of the most pop­u­lar and op­ti­mal choice in time and en­ergy-sav­ing means,” says Vi­talij Kapitonov, CEO of KlasJet, Euro­pean busi­ness avi­a­tion com­pany spe­cial­is­ing in pri­vate and cor­po­rate char­ter flights.

“World-class gath­er­ings usu­ally take place in ei­ther re­mote or ex­tremely busy lo­ca­tions at the event time. In such cases, pri­vate fly­ing be­comes a ra­tio­nal al­ter­na­tive to avoid crowds of peo­ple and long checkin lines in the air­ports, thus more re­cently is cho­sen not only by celebri­ties but also busi­ness­man or groups of friends and fam­i­lies,” adds Vi­talij.

Here are 10 events that pri­vate fly­ers can look for­ward to this year.

1. For­mula 1 Grand Prix de monaco

Re­motely lo­cated on the South coast of France, Cir­cuit de Monaco will host the fa­mous race from May 25 to 28. At 3.34km-long, the race of ev­ery driver’s dream, it is not only the short­est cir­cuit but also the sport’s slow­est and tight­est corner. Though the race hasn’t started, it has al­ready at­tracted sport en­thu­si­asts’ at­ten­tion — Nico Ros­berg’s sur­pris­ing re­tire­ment and Valt­teri Bot­tas join­ing Lewis Hamil­ton’s team are heat­ing up the environment.

2. White niGhts Fes­ti­val

Lo­cated in St Peters­burg city, Rus­sia, it can be re­ferred to as an ex­tra­or­di­nary time pe­riod through May and July. It is the time when the sun is vis­i­ble even when walk­ing at mid­night and when the city is filled with var­i­ous cul­tural events, fire­works and open-air per­for­mances.
