When it comes to flying in style, you can’t do better than a luxury private jet. Business owners, executives, doctors, lawyers, and others like you deserve to travel in comfort and class, soaring the skies with a talented team catering to your every whim.
But if you’re new to luxury air travel, you might not know what the differences are between different luxury private jets and which jets are right for you, your family, and your coworkers. Today, let’s take a look at some of the most popular luxury private jets and explore just why they’re so desired.
what is a 'luxury' private jet?
For our purposes, a luxury private jet is a high-quality, premium aircraft that provides unparalleled experiences, comfort, and class to its passengers. While luxury private jets might do the same core job as other private and commercial aircraft—getting people from one place to the other—that’s where the similarities end.
A traditional aircraft might have just enough room for passengers and cram everyone in as closely as possible, making for a less-than-optimal travel experience. It’s the opposite with private aviation, which typically comes with ample legroom, amenities like in-flight catering, automatic Wi-Fi access, and so much more.
But even among the aircraft available on the private charter market, there are those that are set apart in terms of comfort and style. These luxury private jets feature spacious cabins with striking interiors that feel less like an airplane and more like a home in the sky. They will be able to fit more luggage. They may even feature boardrooms, full stand-up showers, or sleeping quarters.
Luxury private jets are prized among high-net-worth individuals who need to get from place to place quickly and comfortably. There’s no reason to experience the discomfort and frustration of normal air travel, especially when you can fly in comfort with Magellan.
examples of stellar luxury private jets
There are several models of luxury private aircraft that stand apart from the rest. Let’s take a closer look at some of the most luxurious private jets available on the charter market.
Embraer phenom 300
Have you ever wondered, “Is it possible to experience luxury on a light jet?” The Embraer Phenom 300 answers, “Yes.”
This sleek, lightweight jet is one of the best in class in terms of cabin space, luggage capacity, speed, and even fuel efficiency. You might think of light jets as cramped and claustrophobic, but nothing could be further from the truth with this luxury aircraft.
In fact, it offers some of the best aeronautical experiences to those who choose to fly in it. For example, it has an enclosed lavatory where many light jets do not.
Powerful engines facilitate a maximum range of over 2,200 miles and a cruising speed of over 500 mph. All in all, this could be just what you’re looking for if you need a speedy, agile, luxury private jet for your upcoming short- to mid-range trip.
On the other hand, maybe you’re looking for a long-range, highly capable private jet that can get you where you need to go with no pit stops in between. That’s where the Gulfstream G650ER comes in.
Capable of traveling a whopping 8,000 miles before needing to refuel, the Gulfstream G650ER is a standout, stellar luxury jet (the “ER” in the name stands for “extended range”). Notably, this luxury aircraft has the record for the farthest flight in business aviation history. If you need to get to your destination in a single trip leg, this is the aircraft for you.
But the Gulfstream G650ER also brings much more to the table, like variable configurations that can accommodate up to 19 passengers. It also has enough interior room to comfortably fit 10 sleeping passengers for long-distance overnight flights. With a top speed of over 700 mph, the Gulfstream G650ER will get you where you need to go on time, every time.
Plus, the interior is built to exude the height of luxury. The cabin can include a stand-up shower, a private sleeping area, and a full galley so that you don’t have to sacrifice the conveniences you’re used to on the ground.
The G450ER also has a pressurized cabin to help passengers remain alert and comfortable during their flights, as well as in-flight access to luggage and room to store up to 18 suitcases. There are even separate cabin zones so that every passenger can experience their ideal version of comfort. There’s a reason this is the model owned by the likes of Oprah and Jeff Bezos.
Dassault falcon 8x
Then there’s the Dassault Falcon 8X: a comfortable, classy aircraft that is configured for eight passengers and up to three crew members. For you, this means best-in-class service by an attendant to serve you meals, assist with coordinating your family members, and much more. Depending on the layout of your aircraft, you may be able to fit up to 16 passengers instead of just eight!
In any case, you’ll benefit from super-low cabin noise that doesn’t exceed 49 dB, plus highly comfortable cabin pressurization to help combat jet lag. If you want to land at your destination alert and ready to go, the Dassault Falcon 8X is right for you.
Certain models even include full showers in the rear of the plane, so it’s a standout choice for business professionals and busy travelers who like to reach their destinations refreshed and ready for anything.
Embraer Lineage 1000E
Embraer returns to the list of best luxury private jets in the sky today with the Lineage 1000E. As one of the largest luxury jets on the market, it features five distinct cabin zones, enabling you to set up an office in the sky, a separate bedroom or resting space, and much more. If you’ve ever wanted a home in the sky, this is the plane you should check out.
Based on Embraer’s 190 airliner, the Lineage 1000E was reconfigured to fit up to 19 passengers. Some configurations have a master bedroom suite with a queen-sized bed plus a two-person shower.
On this aircraft, you can travel with your entire family or your company’s VIPs in the ultimate comfort. Add to that enough room for a fully staffed service crew, and you’ll feel like you’re flying in a five-star hotel!
The Airbus ACJ350 is a premium, wide-body VIP jet, taking the overall concept of a massive airliner like the Boeing 787 and Boeing 747-8 and transitioning it into the luxury sector. Think of it as the penthouse apartment of the air, featuring enough floor space for you, your family members, your coworkers, and anyone else you may need. We aren’t kidding about the floorspace—one of these jets has up to 300 square feet of room.
Temperature controls are included by default, so you and your fellow passengers can ensure your own comfort if you are in different rooms. Even better, the Airbus ACJ350 can fly up to 9,300 miles/11,000 nautical miles or around 22 hours before it needs to be refueled, enabling you to get practically anywhere nonstop. With this mileage, you can go around the world, from Los Angeles to Dubai, without stopping to refuel.
As if that wasn’t enough, the Airbus ACJ350 is configurable with different layouts, including options for an executive dining room or boardroom, a private washroom, a private office, and one or more bedrooms. If you’ve ever wanted to feel like you’re flying on your own private Air Force One, an Airbus ACJ350 is just the ticket.
