Private Jet Charter


The intercontinental Gulfstream G550 is a truly long range jet, and is a significantly updated version¬† of the popular Gulfstream V.  The Gulfstream 550 can fly further, and faster, and offer more space than its predecessor. In air travel, cabin space is at a premium, and knowing this Gulfstream made major modifications to the Gulfstream 550 in order to maximise its available space.

Not only did they actually make the jet longer, increasing it to 42.6 feet in length, they also tinkered with the design, so that now the main door has moved a couple feet forward, while a new and more compact avionics system was installed, which together free up 58 cubic feet of available cabin space. The galley at the front has been remodelled to save six feet in length, while the galley toward the aft saves five. 

All this extra space has also meant that two extra windows could be installed, further increasing the sense of space and light. The cabin is capable of accommodating up to 19 passengers, but is typically arranged to carry eight to ten. Facilities include a dining or conference room, a private lavatory and shower, work stations, and crew areas.
