Whether you are traveling to an exotic destination, a romantic resort or a familiar vacation spot to start a new life together, Crew Aviation can help make it a once in a lifetime experience.

What are the most important things couples should consider when planning their honeymoon?

A great experience starts with knowing your travel budget. But even if you have unlimited cash to spend, it can turn into a travel nightmare if your travel planning doesn’t include understanding the possible restrictions and providing the necessary documents for your trip. If you are traveling outside of the United States, you need to know the current restrictions in your destination. Some countries not only require COVID vaccinations for entry, but other vaccines may be required or strongly recommended. Yellow fever, malaria, typhoid, and other vaccinations are recommended in many countries and can be purchased from your local health department or your GP. A passport is required for travel outside the United States and current turnaround times can be lengthy. So plan accordingly. Most countries have restrictions that your passport cannot be issued within six months of its expiration. If in doubt, check your travel details with your current passport. Travel visas may also be required and there may be longer waiting times. With COVID restrictions changing on a daily basis, it is best to check back regularly to make sure you have all of the necessary documentation. Crew Aviation employees receive updates on travel restrictions, health and wellness and safety several times a day in order to inform our passengers in advance of their planned trip.

What are the advantages of private traveling with a crew for a newlywed couple?

Crew Aviation offers a bespoke experience where the couple can choose flight time, destination, amenities and travel details. There are no TSA lines, no ticket counters, lost luggage or angry passengers. Passengers can travel with their luggage and items that they want to take with them for recreational activities, such as golf clubs, ski equipment, snorkeling or diving equipment, hiking or trekking – really the sky and the luggage space are the limits! On return, most items purchased can be brought on board and secured for the journey home. Many newlyweds buy items to commemorate their trip, and private flights can easily accommodate a wine box, framed artwork, or treasure from an antique or design store that needs to be part of their home. The beginning of a new life together should be relaxing and romantic with the opportunity to make memories.

Which special services are still offered?

Our employees can coordinate a farewell party in our private VIP hangar with family and friends. Special items can be arranged for the flight, such as champagne, a personal wedding or honeymoon cake, a catering menu or the placement of gifts. We have an in-house travel expert who can book an entire trip including hotel, tours, meals, ground transportation and activities. Upon request of individual services, we can book rental cars, chauffeur-driven cars or limousines, island transports, and seaplanes or helicopters. We also have exclusive partners for luxury yachts, sailing boats or other excursions upon arrival at the destination. With a global network of companies and trusted contacts, we can help you plan an unforgettable honeymoon experience.

Can we add a Crew Aviation flight to our honeymoon registration?

Sure! Usually trips can be planned 12 months in advance, leaving enough time to leave gifts for your memorable trip. We can help you plan a registration budget or create an account that allows guests to contribute directly without the fees associated with most online sites. Contact us for restrictions and limitations so that you can decide which method is best for you.

Are there other options when using Crew Aviation?

Yes, we can offer transport to connecting locations. Perhaps your dream honeymoon is a cruise. We can fly you to the destination where your ship departs and return when your adventure is complete. Often times, couples are given airline tickets or airline miles for travel. If you fly commercially to Europe, Hawaii, Australia or Tahiti, we can connect you with direct international flights such as Chicago, New York, Los Angeles or Seattle.

Whether we offer round-trip transportation or a connection to your entire honeymoon travel experience, we always offer Stellar service.

Prime tales on just-style in January… | Attire Business Information

Top Just-Style stories in January include an exclusive report on the challenges and opportunities facing the apparel industry in 2021, as well as a look at four key changes manufacturers need to make to ensure they survive and thrive after Covid-19 . In other countries, concerns about possible Vietnam tariffs continue to grow, and the month also reported why Joe Biden’s inauguration could help stabilize the US apparel industry and what the US ban on Xinjiang cotton for apparel means.

1. US apparel CEOs warn of further Vietnam tariffs

Concern over the prospect of additional punitive tariffs on US imports of apparel and footwear from Vietnam continues to grow – companies like Nike, Adidas America, Gap Inc., Levi Strauss and Under Armor are the latest to oppose such a move.

2. Outlook for 2021 – challenges and opportunities for the clothing industry

2021 should be a year of winners and losers. The aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic means ongoing volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity with fewer retail brands, stores and malls. The winners will be those companies that communicate their purpose, deliver new value and adapt to this new normal, according to executives consulted by just-style.

3. Australia Wool 2030 Strategy to Address Key Industry Problems

Australian Wool Innovation (AWI), the research, development and marketing organization for the Australian wool industry, has released its Wool 2030 Strategy to help stakeholders make better informed decisions and adopt more sustainable practices.

4th Outlook for 2021 – what will happen next with the procurement of clothing?

How is the procurement landscape likely to change in 2021, and what can apparel companies and their suppliers do to stay ahead, stay competitive, and build resilience for the future? Experts say it is important to redefine apparel supply chains and increase investment in technology and digital tools to minimize risk, accelerate production, and reduce costs. Also in the foreground are the new version of the rules for buyer-supplier relationships, end-to-end visibility and renewed efforts towards sustainability and CO2 neutrality.

5. What the US ban on Xinjiang cotton means for clothing

The US this week stepped up efforts to combat forced labor in supply chains with a sweeping regional ban on imports of cotton products from the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR) in China. The move is likely to accelerate the shift in industry sourcing from China – and could lead to a surge in alternative fiber adoption – according to Just-Style.

6th Why the Brexit trade deal requires good contract management

The UK and the European Union finally announced the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement on December 24, 2020. The trade pact was signed on December 30, 2020 and applied from January 1, 2021 when the Brexit transition period ended. For Stephen Sidkin and Lucy Coffey of Fox Williams LLP, the free trade agreement is “the equivalent of arthritis – you can still do most of what you did before, but it just takes a little longer and is more painful!”

7th VF Corp is suspending procurement activities in Asia to increase speed

VF Corporation, owner of brands like The North Face, Timberland and Vans, is relocating its product supply hub – which serves as the base of its global supply chain in Asia – from Hong Kong to Singapore for speed and efficiency.

8th. Inditex joins the new MIT consortium to fight climate change

Fashion giant Inditex joins industry leaders like Apple, Accenture, Boeing, IBM and PepsiCo in a new cross-industry initiative to find a solution to the global climate crisis.

9. “China + Vietnam + many” is still the strategy

Even before the life-changing event in Covid, there was great interest in relocating production from China. Many US brands considered relocating closer to, or even on, their home turf, given mounting concerns over trade wars and forced labor. But where are you now with these thoughts?

10. Blockchain solution for tracking the custody chain for Australian wool

Australian Wool Innovation (AWI), the research, development and marketing organization for the Australian wool industry, has partnered with blockchain company Everledger to track the wool storage chain from farm to consumer.

11. 8 key trends to transform apparel sourcing in 2021

The apparel industry and its supply chains were fraught with problems long before Covid-19 – but it took a global pandemic to bring them to the fore. Country closures, operational standstills, travel bans, labor shortages and raw materials shortages, rising logistics costs, bankruptcies of retailers and suppliers and an increase in online demand have made the fragility of long, complex and inflexible procurement networks clear. Many companies are already changing the way they work, and it is clear that the effects will continue well into 2021 and beyond. Here are eight major problems that are rewriting the rules of apparel sourcing.

12. Survive and Thrive in the New Normal – 4 Changes for Apparel Manufacturers

The clothing manufacturers have to set higher goals than just surviving the current coronavirus crisis. You need to take full advantage of the opportunities presented by the situation and seize them to lay the foundation for growth in the years to come, says Vivek Ramachandran, CEO at Serai.

13th How could the new Biden government affect clothing?

After the previous administration’s roller coaster ride, the long-awaited inauguration of Joe Biden today (Jan. 20) could mean more stability for a clothing industry that has been through the mill for the past four years.

14th 60% of Adidas products are to be made from environmentally friendly materials in 2021

German sportswear giant Adidas says that by 2021 more than 60% of all of its products will be made from sustainable materials, which is closer to its goal of ending plastic waste.

fifteen. Creating a new vision for fashion and manufacturing in the UK

A group of fashion, business and economics experts have come together to urge the UK government to ensure that post-Brexit and in the midst of the pandemic, the fashion and manufacturing industries do not miss out on import costs, free movement of people and goods and maintaining the skills of textile workers.

16. Asos is a Covid-19 winner again – What the analysts say

Asos posted a 23% increase in consolidated sales in the four months to December 26, and expects annual earnings to be at the upper end of current market expectations. A £ 40m increase is expected in the first half of the year as Covid restrictions renew as consumers shop online. Analysts note the online retailer is quick to respond to lockdown categories like loungewear, which have resulted in lower return rates because they are less fit.

17th Athleta in the plus-size drive

Sportswear brand Athleta is rolling out a grand plan for plus size customers. 70% of their collection will be available in sizes 1X-3X for spring 2021.

18th H & M’s Arket brand rents out children’s clothing

Swedish fashion retailer H & M Group’s Arket brand will be renting out children’s clothing starting this month to encourage reuse and reuse.

19th US apparel imports decline in November

Apparel shipments to the US were down in November compared to the previous month, with all ten largest supplier countries registering declines. Year-over-year, U.S. apparel importers continue to prioritize Asian nations over their Central American counterparts, with Vietnam, Pakistan, and Cambodia all seeing shipment growth.

20th Boohoo signs a £ 55 million deal to acquire the Debenhams brand

UK online fast fashion retailer Boohoo Group has signed an agreement to acquire worldwide rights to Debenhams brands and its websites for £ 55 million ($ 75.2 million) to further its endeavor to create the UK’s largest market and grow into new categories including beauty, sports and housewares.
