APT has launched a series of  private jet tours in Australia - from Cape York to Uluru, from King and Kangaroo Island to the Kimberley, and to Tasmania.

These luxury holidays include all flights aboard a privately chartered aircraft, designed for guests to travel with ease to some of the most remote and beautiful locations in Australia visiting iconic landmarks along the way.

APT's Private Jet Air Tour guests will benefit from the use of private departure terminals in some locations and reaching some destinations inaccessible to larger commercial jets.
