Remote Lands Introduces Bespoke Asian Private Jet Journeys

Capitalizes on trend in private air travel now developing in Asia

(NEW YORK, NY, March 1, 2007) - Remote Lands, Inc., America's leader in Asian luxury bespoke travel, has introduced tailor-made journeys by private jet charter to the worldԳ most compelling continent. Guests are whisked around Asia in hedonistic style aboard a sumptuous Lear, Citation, Gulfstream, Challenger or any other aircraft desired. Guests can fly commercially to Asia and pick up their jets over there, or they can fly privately the entire route beginning in North America. Prices are available upon request.

Traveling by private aircraft for business or leisure, once the privilege of a select few, has now become almost de rigueur for high net worth Americans traveling domestically and to Europe. This fledgling trend is now beginning to take root for Americans traveling to Asia as well, and Remote Lands is at the forefront, offering totally customized soup-to-nuts journeys including all hotels, meals, ground transport and activities.

"We are seeing more and more American clients wishing to travel privately within Asia. Many travel over in 1st class on Thai or Singapore or Cathay Pacific, and pick up the jets in Bangkok or Singapore or Hong Kong. We expect the Asian market to eventually mirror the explosive growth in the American market", said Catherine Heald, Remote Lands' Chairman and CEO.

"This is an exciting trend, and Remote Lands is well positioned to dominate this young but burgeoning market. As a full service travel provider, they can organize every aspect of the journeys, from the air charters right down to the accommodations and daily expeditions," added Simon Wagstaff, owner of Hong Kong and Bangkok-based ASA Group Ltd, a private jet charter operator, and a Remote Lands Advisory Board Member.

Remote Lands works closely with their clients to determine their destinations, itineraries and ground needs, as well as aircraft requirements based on travel distances, number of passengers and luggage. Remote Lands has access to thousands of aircraft worldwide, from light to mid to heavy jets, from the very best air charter operators, who must meet the stringent standards of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for safety, security, maintenance and service under FAA Regulation 135. All pilots are ARG/US-certified.

For those busy professionals who can only spare a few weeks at a time for their vacations, but want to see and experience as much of Asia as possible, private air travel is the answer. With flexible flight schedules and no airport waiting times, passengers can visit many more places in a short period of time. They can also fly directly to more remote and unexplored Asian destinations, which are not readily accessible by commercial aircraft. Other advantages include greatly enhanced security and privacy, superb onboard service, and personalized gourmet menus including magnificent food and wine. One also has the ability to bring an entourage, which Remote Lands can organize locally in Asia, including personal bodyguards, chefs, concierges, photographers, trainers, beauticians and massage therapists. Other special services include special transportation (helicopters, yachts and exotic cars) and insider access to extraordinary people (Asian nobility and dignitaries) and exclusive events (weddings, private parties). Anything is possible.

In addition to Remote Lands' bespoke private jet journeys, the company also offers tailor-made luxury vacations wherein guests fly commercially to their Asian destinations. Private jet journeys with celebrity speakers on specified dates, on the themes of Cuisine & Culture, Art & Architecture, and Golf are also part of Remote Lands' unique offerings. The first such journey, slated for October 13-26th 2007, features best-selling authors Gael Greene and Simon Winchester, and focuses on Asian Cuisine & Culture.
