Looking to escape the gloomy and ever-changing winter weather, or need a break from home for the weekend? 

Many people want to go on a winter weekend getaway, but do not want to deal with the hassles and traffic of commercial flights. Instead of dealing with commercial air travel, fly privately with NICHOLAS AIR, a private air carrier based in Oxford, Miss., and travel to one of their Top 5 destinations for a Winter Weekend Getaway.

NICHOLAS AIR’S top 5 destinations for a winter weekend getaway are: Destin, Fla.; Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; Charleston, S.C.; Palm Beach, Fla. and Eagle, Colo. 

 “For NICHOLAS AIR Members, we see their winter pursuits take over—some are escaping to the beach from the cold weather in their home state, while others are headed to the mountains for skiing, time by the fire, great accommodations and world-class cuisine,” said Peder von Harten, NICHOLAS AIR Vice President of Sales and Marketing. 

 These Top 5 Destinations come to mind first for NICHOLAS AIR because they are easy to fly in and out of, the weather is predictable and enjoyable, and the local fare makes it a location our Members choose to experience often. Whether soaking up the sun on the beach in Cabo San Lucas or Destin, or hiking and hitting the slopes in Colorado, one of these destinations is sure to have what you need for a winter weekend getaway. 

“I believe that it’s the connection to the area, whether it be due to family traditions or properties they own, or just a customer’s particular love for an area,” von Harten said. “Some prefer sand, some prefer snow. But ultimately, having the flexibility of a NICHOLAS AIR program available to take them between the two, makes it easy to enjoy.” 

What to do on a Winter Weekend Getaway

When traveling to any of these ideal destinations, you want to be certain to try the local fare, whether eating in local restaurants or sampling local spirits. 

“In many of these locations, the top restaurants also feature wine pairings put together by master sommeliers and award-winning chefs,” von Harten said. 

Those who prefer to stay in a hotel for their weekend getaway should consider staying with a NICHOLAS AIR Partner, such as the Belmond Charleston Place in Charleston, S.C.

“In many places, our Members have vacation or family homes they stay in, but the Belmond Charleston Place, a NICHOLAS AIR Partner, is also a top destination for our Members because of its downtown location, super-luxe rooms, and great food,” von Harten said. 

Flying commercial can be stressful and cause travel delays, especially as it concerns traveling during the winter. But flying privately with Nicholas Air takes away all of the hassle and other issues associated with flying commercially. NICHOLAS AIR’s fleet of six different aircraft types allows Members the ability to interchange between all aircraft within the fleet and choose the jet best suited for their trip.

“The ease of flying private makes the hassles of airports essentially disappear,” von Harten said. “Using the Oxford Airport affords our Members the luxury of exiting their car, boarding the plane, and taking off all within a short amount of time. Ease and efficiency, saving valuable vacation time by avoiding the experience of major commercial gateways.”

NICHOLAS AIR is headquartered in Oxford, Miss. and operates a floating fleet available anywhere in the Continental US, Mexico and the Caribbean.
