Premiere private jet charter service Victor hosted an exclusive Platinum First View and showcase of Cuban Art as part of the jet service’s bespoke curated travel program of cultural events and experiences in Cuba. Victor’s “The Art of Curated Travel” debuted with a grand, Cuban-spiced affair at the 15th annual SCOPE Art Show. Guests enjoyed special cocktails and music as well as a corresponding digital showcase of Cuban art throughout, all in celebration of Victor’s nonstop flights and exclusive itineraries to Cuba from 19 major U.S. cities.
