The world’s best New Year’s eve parties by private jet


The Hogmany, or New Year, celebrations in Edinburgh date from pagan times when mid-winter was celebrated with festivals of fire and light. Scotland is often regarded as the birthplace of modern New Year’s Eve celebrations and there is no better place to party through the night than Edinburgh.

Celebrations in Edinburgh begin in the days leading up to New Year’s Eve. On the 29th December there is a torchlight procession that snakes through the streets of the city and ends with the burning of a Viking Longboat. Also in the days leading up to the 31st are the Night Afore events. These are a celebration of street art and culture and include both Scottish and international artists.

On the night of the 31st, New Year’s Eve, Edinburgh plays host to a huge street party. There is always a concert in the Prince Street Gardens and there are a number of other music stages dotted through the city. The New Year is seen in with a massive fireworks display and thousands of strangers linking arms and singing Auld Lang Syne.

Charter a private jet to Edinburgh and see in the New Year in style. Your plane will land at the Edinburgh International Airport, just twenty minutes by chauffeur driven car from the centre of the city.

New York

For over 100 years Times Square in central New York City has played host to the famous ball drop to see in the New Year. Crowds stake out their spots on Broadway, between 40th and 53rd streets, from early in the afternoon to ensure a great view for the evening. From 6pm two music stages host performances and every hour on the hour, through to 11pm, there is a burst of fireworks to whet your appetite for the big show at midnight.

At midnight, the culmination of the evening’s entertainment, the huge silver sphere drops over 70 feet before a massive 60 second fireworks display lights up the skies over Manhattan.

Hire a private jet to fly to New York and experience one of the world’s most spectacular New Year’s Eve celebrations. Your plane will land you at Teterboro Airport, one of the busiest private and executive avation airports in the world, just minutes from downtown Manhattan.

Rio de Janeiro

Feliz ano novo! Bring in the New Year in style on Copacabana Beach. Every year over 2 million people gather from the early evening to drink caipirinhas and samba the night away before the huge firework display at midnight. For many party-goers New Year is a time of renewal and many of them will wear all white, and take a dip in sea, to symbolise this.

Fly by private jet to the Antonio Carlos Tom Jobin Airport, just 14km from the centre of Rio de Janeiro. If you don’t want to join the crowds on the beach then all the beach front hotels will be hosting New Year’s Eve parties and offer the same spectacular view without the crush.
