Like every year, the demand for private flights increases in the summer months. Flexibility, comfort and privacy are some of the main reasons why many of our customers choose this means of transport for a weekend getaway with their special someone or for a summer holiday with the family. Although Nice, Ibiza, Palma de Mallorca or Cannes remain among the most demanded destinations, there are also other places that are gaining popularity. Are you still looking for inspiration for a summer getaway or a well-deserved holiday? We have selected 5 magnificent hots spots that are well worth a visit by private jet this summer:
Menorca – Spain
Menorca is one of the jewels of the Mediterranean Sea. It is the ideal destination for couples or families who want to relax, combining cultural visits with coves that have little to envy the Caribbean: incredible white sand beaches and crystal-clear water that invite you to practice sailing, windsurfing or scuba diving. Declared a biosphere reserve by UNESCO, Menorca has great natural richness and transmits a sense of calm. Tourism in Menorca is also more low-key than in Ibiza or Majorca, which helps to maintain this natural paradise. Discover interesting monumental ensembles such as the historic quarter of Ciutadella, prehistoric remains such as the Naveta des Tudons, the archaeological site of Mahon, or even small fishing villages that still preserve their ancient traditions. In the evening it is worth strolling through the port of Ciutadella and have a drink at one of the terraces that can be found in this magnificent Menorcan enclave.
¿How to get to Menorca by private jet?
The airport Menorca-Mahon (MAH) is the only airport on the island and is located 4.5 km southwest of the capital Mahon. During the summer months this airport gets extremely busy, so we recommend you to book your private jet well in advance to ensure slots availability.
Tivat – Montenegro
Tivat is a coastal town in the southwest of Montenegro and one of the fastest growing luxury destinations in Europe. Located in the central part of the Bay of Kotor on the Adriatic coast, Tivat has become a top destination for the wealthy elite. This is mainly due to the development of Porto Montenegro, a luxury marina and residential complex, considered as the best superyacht marina in Europe. Apart from luxury hotels, it includes dozens of exclusive boutiques and restaurants, a naval museum, a nautical club and a port for 450 yachts. This picturesque location in the Bay of Kotor- a UNESCO protected area- not only attracts visitors from all over the world with its glamour, but also thanks its pleasant Mediterranean climate and breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains and Adriatic Sea.
How to get to Tivat by private jet?
The best option to fly to Tivat and to Porto Montenegro is Tivat Airport (TIV), located just 4 km south of Tivat. Although it does not have a dedicated private jet terminal, it can accommodate all categories of private jets and there are VIP lounges available to make your trip comfortable.
Mykonos – Greece
Mykonos is a trendy and cosmopolitan destination located in the Cyclades, an island group in the Aegean Sea. The island is a tourist magnet, by day with its beautiful white houses and its magnificent beaches, and by night thanks to its vibrant night life. Famous discos playing electronic music right next to the beach have become synonymous of the summer and winter in Mykonos, which is also called the “Ibiza of Greece”. Shopping lovers will find in Matoyanni Street the most exclusive boutiques and jewelry shops next to interesting art galleries. Mild temperatures throughout the year and a glamorous atmosphere make Mykonos a very popular destination for many celebrities. Given its small size, the island is the perfect destination for a short weekend getaway.

Mykonos Airport (JMK), located just 3 km from the city centre, is the best choice for private flights to Mykonos. Traffic at this airport increases significantly during the summer, so we recommend you to book your private flight well in advance to ensure slots availability.
Bari – Italy
Secret squares hidden between winding alleys, wonderful beaches and good weather almost all year round. No wonder the Apulian region, located in southeastern Italy, is one of the favorite summer spots for designers, actors and stylists. In Bari, the bustling capital of Apulia, shopping is an art: you can find anything from exclusive designer boutiques to large shopping centers. Further south, you can discover the labyrinthine streets of the White City of Ostuni, located on top of a hill overlooking the Adriatic Sea, and Lecce, known as the Florence of the south, whose Baroque architecture and pleasant atmosphere captivate everyone who visits it.
How to get to Bari by private jet?
The Bari-Palese airport (BRI) is located about 8 km northwest of the city centre. Although it does not have a dedicated private jet terminal, it can accommodate all categories of executive jets and offers VIP lounges.
Corsica – France
Corsica also known as the “Island of beauty”. Its landscapes, monuments and jaw-dropping beaches make it an ideal destination for hiking, relaxing and discovering ancient heritage and traditions. The Corsican coastline, with a total length of more than 1,000 km, is the most diverse and richest of France: crystalline waters, immense beaches of fine sand, small deserted coves or granite cliffs populated by seabirds. Corsica is a very popular destination for private jet travelers, especially for those who connect with yacht or boat charter.
