Empire Aviation Group, which operates one of the regions largest managed fleets of private jets and is a major private jet charter operator, offers a range of jet options for couples, families and larger groups. Most of the Taj destinations can be reached directly and comfortably, through a range of private jet options and using the private jet terminals at destination airports, where available.

We share the same passion for 5-star quality and customer service in serving a very discerning clientele and also a common interest in India, where Taj super luxury palace properties are attracting international interest amongst affluent business and leisure travellers and where private aviation is also poised for strong growth. We see a natural fit between our brands and an attractive market opportunity in India and beyond, as we both continue to build our international portfolios.”
