Top 11 Airplanes to Charter for Every Occasion
Airplanes come in many shapes sizes – as do private jet charter costs. While choosing the right plane can be challenging, that’s the beauty of the private charter: you can cherry-pick the aircraft that’s right for each individual journey. Whether you’re flying with colleagues, a date, or the whole family, there is a private jet that’s perfect for you. We’re here to help you find it. Read on for the top 11 airplanes to charter for every occasion.
Best Private Jet for Impressing Your Date
While the Embraer Legacy 1000 offers a positively lavish amount of space for two, this aircraft is guaranteed to awe even the most selective date. This private jet charter costs a bit more than a romantic dinner for two, but the master bedroom with a queen-sized bed, walk-in shower and expansive interior are well worth the price. You bring the romance, we’ll bring the Champagne.
Top Private Jet for a Short Hop
Thanks to its low operating costs and excellent range, the Embraer Phenom 100 is a popular choice for short and efficient flights. The cabin is among the most spacious in the very light jet class, comfortably accommodating up to four passengers and a surprising amount of luggage. The Phenom 100 offers great value, whether it’s a hop from New York to Miami or London to Ibiza.
Best Airplane for Foodies
We offer in-flight catering to suit any taste. But if you’d like to take your dining experience to new heights, the Dassault Falcon 2000 may be your aircraft of choice. Every seat is equipped with a table, so guests can dine together without a passenger or two being relegated to eating on the sofa. If that’s not enough, the Falcon 2000 can be outfitted with onboard kitchen facilities including an oven and espresso machine. If it’s a special dinner you’re after, we can arrange for a private chef to come along and prepare a gourmet meal while you fly. Now, isn’t that better than a packet of peanuts?
Hottest Private Jet for Trendsetters
For trendsetters looking to turn heads on the tarmac, the Piaggio Avanti P180 II is sure to cause a splash. While the Piaggio Avanti could be straight out of a James Bond film, the aircraft’s catfish-like appearance isn’t just for style. Its unique features were designed to make the aircraft as comfortable and reliable as possible. The backwards-facing turboprop engines reduce cabin noise and the “whiskers” keep the plane more rigid in the air, allowing for a smoother ride.
Top Private Jet for Business Meetings
If you’re looking for an aircraft that can accommodate an important business meeting or conference call, there’s no topping the facilities on board the Airbus A319 CJ. While interiors vary greatly, the VIP corporate version of the A319 CJ can be equipped with a spacious, high-tech conference room, that offers ample space, Wi-Fi, a telephone for conference calls and a large screen for presentations.
Top Aircraft for Getting in a Workout
We understand – it can be hard to fit in a workout with all this jetting around. However, a private jet can be the perfect place to squeeze in some exercise. The Gulfstream G550 offers the space and privacy for a workout, whether it’s a full yoga class or a few push-ups. If you’re truly dedicated to in-flight fitness, it’s possible to outfit a Gulfstream jet with Peloton spinning bikes so you can take your spin class up in the air.
Best Private Plane for Fashionistas
When you’re flying from one glamorous event to next, your wardrobe can’t be dictated by a limited cargo capacity. If you’ve got real luggage to move, the Pilatus PC-12 is a great choice. The cargo capacity is 131 cubic feet, an impressive statistic for a plane of this size. Better yet, the baggage area is accessible from inside the cabin – perfect for that in-flight outfit change.
Best Airplane for the Whole Family
If you’re travelling with the kids in tow, the Bombardier Challenger 850 is the aircraft that will quell a spat before it even begins. The incredibly spacious Challenger 850 can seat up to 14 passengers in comfort. Three separate cabin zones allow parents the space they need to work while the kids play and baby naps in peace.
Best Aircraft for Jetting off to the Slopes
Skiers know a thing or two about bulky gear and oversized luggage. The Cessna Citation Sovereign is about to make your flights to the slopes a lot easier. The Citation Sovereign is a favorite for skiers thanks to its generous luggage capacity and ability to land on short runways, as are frequently found in European ski destinations.
Perfect Airplane for Catching Up on Sleep
A private charter flight is the perfect place to catch up on sleep, whether it’s a nap or a full night’s rest. For a short flight between meetings, the Embraer Phenom 300 offers the most comfortable lie-flat seat in the super light jets class. For a long-haul flight, the Dassault Falcon 900EX offers a three-person divan that converts into a large sleeping area as well as two seats that recline and combine to make a full-sized bed.
Ideal Aircraft for When You’re Running Late
If you’re short on time, the aircraft you need on your side is the Cessna Citation X. The Citation X is the fastest civilian aircraft in the sky, reaching speeds just below the sound barrier at Mach 0.92. This speed demon can get you from LA to New York in four hours, an hour short of the typical private jet journey.
