The Various Private Jet Sizes Available for Charter

Sun Air Jets hanger with various private jet sizes for charter

There are so many perks that come with chartering a private jet. And much of that is the flexibility and convenience to make choices concerning your travel — such as which private jet you’d like to fly high in. 

Of course, to make decisions like this, you are going to need to gain some insight; and get to know your options.

Let’s take a moment to look over the various private jet sizes available for charter. 

Passenger Seating on a Private Jet

One thing you can always count on when you book a private jet charter is getting comfortable seating. Every make and model will have a different interior when it comes to seating design, holding space for a certain number of passengers. And, because many jets get remodeled, you could have three of the same types of jets in a charter fleet — and each may look different inside.

Unlike commercial airliners, the goal isn’t to fill up as much space as possible with seats for paying passengers. Private jet charters are more focused on ensuring your surroundings are relaxing and spacious. Comfort is a top priority.  

Bear in mind that passenger capacity changes on flights offering some shut-eye. Those with seating that can transform into beds will reduce the number of passengers, sometimes by half. This is definitely something to pay attention to when booking. 

The Size of a Private Jet Charter

There are different sizes of private jets available so you will always find one to meet your needs. However, it is important to understand that this range in size is often directly related to the number of passengers the jet can hold, as well as the distance it can fly.

Most private jet charters will fall into one of these categories

  • Very light jets
  • Light jets
  • Super light jets
  • Midsize jets
  • Super midsize jets
  • Heavy jets
  • Ultra long-range heavy jets
  • Jumbo jets 

Every charter company has a select charter fleet of varying sizes to meet client demand. 

What Does a Private Jet Interior Look Like?

The interior of the jet may look different. Some may feel more roomy and spacious whereas others may feel more compact. Some may be brightly colored while others may be dark and elegant. And some private jet interiors may have forward-facing seats whereas others may have club seating, even including a sofa. 

Inflight Entertainment. You may find monitors installed throughout the aircraft, one main monitor at the front of the cabin, or small personal monitors at every seat. Nearly all private jets come equipped with inflight connectivity and entertainment systems. 

Galleys. Something you can expect in your private jet’s interior is a galley. While they are not always standard, they are quite common. Some galleys are small only offering refreshments and snacks. Some jets have galleys with full ovens capable of cooking a hot meal while in flight. 

Lavatories. Lavatories are another standard feature on a private jet, except on some of the lighter, shorter-distance jets. And, just like everything else, they too can vary. Most lavatories are small in size, but don’t be surprised if you find yourself in a luxury jet with a larger-than-normal place to go. 

Again, the size of the private jet is often related to what you will find onboard – including the number of amenities, lavatories, and galley size/offerings.
