Singapore Airlines is to offer private jet transfer in Europe to passengers flying from Australia, the airline confirmed last week.

A partnership with Lufthansa's Private Jet services will mean that long-haul passengers flying to one of Singapore Airline's 14 European destinations will be able to continue their journey on a private jet to one of over 1,000 airports in Europe.

The model is almost exactly the same as PrivateConnect, the British Airways tie-up with CitationAir announced earlier this year which provides private jet connections in North America for passengers arriving on BA flights.

The European service, which is provided by Star Alliance partners Singapore Airlines and Lufthansa, uses a fixed price and is based solely on distance (from €6,900), regardless of the number of travelers.

A dedicated "Private Jet Manager" is on hand to arrange catering, baggage transfer, limousine services and customs clearance for passengers using the top-end service.

The service is likely to be popular with Singapore Airlines' first class passengers, who enjoy suites aboard the A380 services to London, Paris and Zurich - albeit at a price tag which starts at around €12,000 return.
