The Boeing 757 has always been a rare bird in Australian skies, but none moreso than this striking all-black 757-200 which landed at Sydney Airport a little before 1900 local time on Thursday.
The British registered 757, G-TCSX, is part of TAG Aviation’s charter and private jet fleet and has been leased to the Four Seasons and features the hotel group’s livery on the fuselage and logo on the tail.
The Four Seasons unveiled the aircraft, which is fitted with 52 flat-bed leather seats and used for luxury around-the-world holidays, in late 2014. These trips, that last between three and four weeks, cost about US$119,000 per person (double occupancy), according to the hotel group’s website.
The 757’s visit to Sydney is only a brief one, with the aircraft departing for Bali shortly after midday on Friday.
A video of the aircraft being painted can be seen on the Four Seasons Youtube channel:
