FlyEliteJets, a private jet company and Interior design firm Jenny Allan Design, two International award winners, teamed up to create the world’s first ‘Flying Nursery’ for those who want to travel with children.
Unlike traditional private jets that cater to business professionals, this jet is a safe space for nursing moms to feed, play with and sing their kids to sleep.
Jenny Allan, Founder of Jenny Allan Design said “We wanted to design something unique that’s never been done before in a private jet and to revolutionise the way clients travel with their children. In this Gulfstream G650, we added a starlit ceiling to create a wonderful sense of atmosphere in the cabin, ideal for bedtime reading. For more fun and whimsical details, we included embossed teddy motives on the seat headrests, a wigwam with cloud cushions that can easily be folded away during take-off and landing as well as a mini rocking horse and shelves for children’s toys and books. It was also really important that the space appealed to mums and dads, so we opted for a calming, tranquil, neutral décor rather than too many bold or bright colours that jar the senses.”
The jet also includes a sofa that can be converted into a double bed, gaming consoles, for older children, and three TVs. Fabric padded bulkheads and sycamore veneer doors with brass inlays add to the aesthetics of this space.
An increased number of FlyEliteJets’ clients started using the ultra-long-range jets and VVIP airliners for weekend gateways and vacations with their families, travelling transcontinental.
Moreover, due to the pandemic, many charter clients and jet owners are looking forward to getting away whilst safeguarding their families. Frequent flights with clients’ family and his own made Christopher Williams Martin, CEO of FlyEliteJets, realise the need for building a game-changing baby-friendly aircraft.
Christopher said, “I was immediately taken by Jenny’s work which is cosmopolitan yet will have universal appeal with its inviting colour schemes and functional design.”
“With our in-house CGI team and design services we can offer clients the full package with jet customisation. The world’s first flying nursery is just the start”, Jenny added.
