While there's nothing better than getting away over the festive period, traffic-laden roads, heaving terminals and overly crowded gates can make the experience rather less than ideal. However, there is an alternative. If you and a companion happen to be flying from Gatwick or Luton - or know someone else who is - the Elite Class gift card can make the transition effortless (and dare we say it, even enjoyable), bestowing all the benefits of flying private jet, even if the flight in question is commercial - and all sorts of trips are covered, from short and long-haul to business and pleasure.
Once at the airport, the travelling party will be picked up in a swish private vehicle and whisked to the aircraft, bypassing all the aggro of the main commercial airline terminal. Skip ahead of cumbersome queues with exclusive baggage check-in and dedicated security, customs screening and immigration processing. Staff are there to do all the heavy lifting, meaning you can enjoy a glass of champagne and light refreshments in the lounge at the Signature Private Terminal before your flight is ready to board.
Later, upon arrival at your destination, an Elite Class staff member will greet passengers with a name board before escorting them via a chauffeur-driven car to a private lounge while any necessary immigration procedures are carried out on their behalf, along with the collection of any checked-in luggage.
