The Hamptons, Monterey & Tofino

Three of the hardest destinations to get to that are a breeze for AirSprint Fractional Owners to visit.

The beautiful thing about being an AirSprint Fractional Owner is the ability to travel like few others can.

Having your own private jet means avoiding long airport lines and overcrowded flights, and you get easier access to some hard-to-reach destinations. While patrons of commercial flights are taking long flights, sometimes with multiple stops, followed by long drives to their destination, AirSprint Fractional Owners are getting stress-free access to airports right by their favourite cities and towns.

Here are three extraordinarily picturesque yet challenging destinations to get to.

The Hamptons, New York

This group of small towns, villages and hamlets scattered along the East Coast are well known for their beaches, farms, golf clubs and vineyards. The Hamptons are an incredibly popular destination for celebrities and the rich and famous.  AirSprint Owners can easily access the Hamptons via Francis S. Gabreski Airport, which is only a short flight from many of Canada’s eastern cities. Once in the Hamptons there is lots to do and beautiful places to stay.

Things to do

Wine tasting is popular in the Hamptons and you have lots of opportunities to partake. Take a ferry over to the North Fork of Long Island and tour dozens of vineyards, wineries and tasting rooms. Check out wineries like Croteaux, Corey Creek, Duck Walk or Channing Daughters.

The Hamptons are home to some of Golf Digest’s Top 100 Golf Courses in the world including Shinnecock (number 4), National (number 8), Friars Head (number 15) and Sebonac Golf Club (number 39). If you can get onto one of these elite private courses, it’s well worth it. With initiation fees ranging from $250,000 to $750,000 and wait lists as long as 20 years, tee times at these courses can be hard to come by. Other courses worth checking out are Montauk Downs, Cherry Creek Golf Links or the Woods at Cherry Creek, home to a 644-yard par-6 18th hole.

Monterey, California

Home to some of the best scenery - and golf - in the world, Monterey, California is a beautiful destination. For people flying commercial however, it requires a flight to San Francisco followed by a two-hour drive. For AirSprint Owners, you can easily access Monterey via Monterey Regional Airport.
