Captain’s Choice: Our Australian and Family-Owned Business Marks a Major Milestone
In 2024, Captain’s Choice celebrates thirty years of creating unrivalled travel experiences. As purveyors of private jet and luxury travel, we seek out rare and enriching encounters around the globe – our expertly curated journeys are often unrepeatable. Since the time of our earliest journeys, we have continually evolved, pioneering travel frontiers, and adopting new modes of transport in unexpected ways. Our essence, however, remains an uncompromising drive to bring our guests the rare and the remote. The formation of this desire is inextricably linked to our founder, Phil Asker.
When asked what the flight would be called, Phil suggested ‘The Captain’s Choice Tour’, a nod to Kearns having selected each destination himself.
As its name would suggest, the tour was originally planned to be a one-off event. Departing in September 1994, ‘The Captain’s Choice Tour’ travelled to Beijing, Delhi, Jerusalem, Tanzania, Seychelles, and Broome; the unique route taking in these six remote and exotic destinations over 13 days.
These private jet journeys would link far-flung destinations along flight paths that commercial airlines rarely, if ever, offered. In addition, these journeys were peppered with exclusive experiences the everyday traveller could not hope to arrange independently.
