TCS World Travel Announces 2020 Expedition Schedule

November 13, 2018

SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 13, 2018--TCS World Travel, the world’s leading tour operator of private jet expeditions, today announced its highly anticipated 2020 schedule of global and regional journeys. These all-inclusive itineraries combine natural wonders, iconic landmarks, “first chance” destinations, exclusive experiences and transformative moments. In addition to its custom Boeing 757 private jets, reconfigured with 50 or 76 seats, the award-winning company will offer its 2020 regional itineraries on an Airbus A318-100 private jet. With seating for 28 guests, this jet has the range to cover longer distances but is also nimble enough to land in remote destinations hard to reach by commercial air.

For over 25 years, TCS World Travel has been enriching lives through its standout luxury jet expeditions and custom travel itineraries. The pioneering private jet tour operator continues to embody the explorer’s spirit by blazing new trails in off-the-beaten path destinations including Azerbaijan; Accra, Ghana; and Minsk, Belarus, and providing one-of-a-kind access within remote and hard-to-reach locales such as Bhutan; Madagascar and Lizard Island, Australia.

“Our 2020 schedule reflects our legacy of providing unparalleled, enriching experiences with exceptional service, as well as offering our guests the access they wouldn’t get on their own and connecting them with people, cultures and experiences,” said TCS World Travel President Shelley Cline. “These are our guiding principles when we develop new journeys and expand our portfolio of offerings, especially as we continue to grow and maintain our position as a leader in the space.”

“First Chance” Tourism

As emerging destinations become more accessible and new opportunities present themselves within a particular region, TCS World Travel introduces “first chance” tourism with its 2020 schedule. Among the many “firsts” that TCS World Travel’s well-traveled guests will encounter: access to unique and hard-to-reach UNESCO World Heritage sites such as Australia’s Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and Fernando de Noronha Marine National Park in Brazil; an introduction to emerging regions including Armenia; Mozambique; Vilnius, Lithuania; the Faroe Islands and Luang Prabang, Laos; and a reintroduction to familiar destinations such as Morocco and Iceland by exploring the less-visited parts of the country.

New Jet Option

Due to its new Airbus A318-100 jet offering, the company’s 2020 regional journeys will allow guests to travel longer distances while still navigating remote destinations. This jet features a spacious interior with 28 flatbed seats, so TCS World Travel can continue to provide the same high level of ease and service for which they are known.
