Make new traditions this Thanksgiving with a charter flight to a fabulous destination

As most Americans are all too aware, Thanksgiving weekend is the busiest travel time of the year. There’s no better time of year to fly by charter jet and skip the endless hassles of commercial air travel.

While airport lines fill up with people waiting to pass through security screenings and board their flights, you’re already in the air and on your way. Spend your time enjoying your holiday instead of wasting endless hours and days stuck in crowded airports.

Explore Someplace New

While you’re at it, 2023 may be the perfect time to break from tradition this Thanksgiving. Contact us today to check on the availability of empty legs to destinations you might have never considered. You just might find yourself relaxing on a sandy beach or zooming down the slopes of your favorite ski resort this Thanksgiving.

Whether you want a quiet, romantic getaway or a fun family adventure, make some new Thanksgiving traditions with Global Air Charters. Here are a few of our favorite alternative Thanksgiving destinations in the U.S. and around the world.

Napa Valley, California

Trade the cooking and hosting for a weekend of fun and relaxation in California’s wine country.  Immerse yourself in Napa Valley’s picturesque vineyards as you sip on world-renowned wines and bask in the region’s autumn hues. Local wineries often host special Thanksgiving events, allowing guests to pair their turkey with the finest cabernets and chardonnays.

Acapulco, Mexico

Swap the turkey for tacos and the cold weather for warm sunshine as you head south to Acapulco, Mexico. This vibrant city offers a blend of beach fun and lively culture. Bask in the sun, dive from the famous seaside cliffs, and treat yourself to authentic Mexican feasts. Try the pan-seared octopus and spicy house salsa at La Vicenta or sample traditional Spanish and Mexican cuisine at Sirocco. You’ll soon forget all about that traditional turkey dinner.

Key West, Florida

If you’re not ready to leave the U.S., yet long for a beachy Thanksgiving, Key West has you covered. This southernmost point of the U.S. offers balmy weather, crystal-clear waters, and an inviting laid-back vibe. Enjoy a dockside seafood dinner at The Salty Oyster Bar & Grill as the sun sets over the horizon, and grab a late-night drink at Sloppy Joe’s, world-renowned as Ernest Hemingway’s favorite watering hole.

Tuscany, Italy

Dreaming of rolling hills, olive groves, and hearty Italian meals? Tuscany is the place to be! Include an Italian feast at the rustic Buca di Sant’Antonio in Lucca. Replace the traditional pumpkin pie with panna cotta and cherish Thanksgiving amidst the Renaissance charm.

Sedona, Arizona

If you long for quiet reflection instead of stressful travel and uncomfortable family gatherings, enjoy a rejuvenating visit to Sedona. According to legend, Sedona sits atop mystical energy vortexes that offer a spiritual recharge, but you don’t have to be a believer to revel in some personal pampering at Los Abridagos or luxuriate with a sauna and a massage at Sedona’s New Day Spa. Set aside some time to explore the red rock formations surrounding the town, and you just might find that perfect spot for some sunrise yoga.

Paris, France

Parisians may not celebrate America’s Thanksgiving holiday, but every day is a celebration in the City of Lights. The exquisite cuisine and romantic allure of Paris make it a perfect alternative to another boring Thanksgiving at home. Dine in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower at Les Marches, take a late-evening stroll along the Seine, and cap off your Parisian Thanksgiving with a chocolate mousse and some people-watching at a café.
