PrivateFly.com is offering an itinerary which allows you to experience an evening of celebrations and the stroke of midnight in both Sydney and Honolulu.
The bespoke 24-hour private jet itinerary uses the world's fastest and furthest private jet, bespoke scheduling and a tight airport turnaround for you to experience New Year's Eve in Sydney, before jumping on board your private jet and flying to Hawaii to do the same all over again.
Experiencing New Year's Eve twice is only possible by moving eastwards across the International Date Line. With the world rotating at 1,038 miles per hour, the time in Honolulu is 21 hours behind Sydney, so you can visit both in the same evening by minimising travel time.
Carol Cork, marketing director of PrivateFly, says: "This is the ultimate way to see in 2018 in two of the world's most glamorous locations. The flight time from Sydney to Honolulu in a Gulfstream G650ER is 9 hours and 40 minutes, so with the 21-hour time difference, you get to replay over 11 hours of party time, by flying eastwards.
"This unique flight experience is only possible by private jet, as the timings are so tight – and there are no airline schedules to fit the itinerary."
The flight costs $290,000 (£166,000) from Sydney to Honolulu (one-way), or from $22,300 (£12,700) per person if a group of 13 passengers travel together.
