Choosing the right size private jet to meet your travel needs is important whether you’re traveling for business or for pleasure. The decision to charter a heavy jet allows for more passengers, more headroom, and longer distance flights. If you’re scheduling a private jet charter to international locations, then a heavy jet might be the perfect choice for you.

The great thing about private jet charters with heavy jets is that you’re enjoying the same ease and simplicity of travel you get with lighter and midsize jets, but on a larger scale. This includes not only the space on the jet and the distances you can travel without refueling, but also the amenities that are available, such as full galleys for gourmet meal preparation, private lavatories, and more generous cargo areas for luggage.

You’ll also enjoy the same degree of privacy you get on smaller jets, with the added luxury of our discreet flight attendants who are there to enhance your overall experience while ensuring your safety.

Within the realm of private aviation, heavy jets can typically fly faster and farther than the average light or midsiz e jet, or even super midsize jet. The average speed is between 400 and 500 mph and while the range will vary from one craft to the next, the distances can easily accommodate international flights.

For instance, the Gulfstream 550 accommodates up to 18 passengers and can fly from New York to Abu Dhabi, Brazil, Dubai, Gabon, Morocco, Moscow, Paris, and more with its 5,900 nautical mile range.

The Dassault Falcon 900LX offers seating for up to 12 passengers on trips as far away as Los Angeles to Tokyo with its range of 3,800 nautical miles.

The Gulfstream GV, by contrast, seats up to 19 passengers comfortably while traveling distances of up to 5,800 nautical miles.

Heavy jets comfortably accommodate between 9 and 16 passengers for longer trips, with private jet charter costs ranging between $4,000 and $8,950 per hour.

An average cabin height of 6.1 feet is a marked difference over smaller jets as it allows a bit more standing room for a person of average height.
