The idea of flying around in a private jet seems pretty elite for the public. However, private jet charters are not reserved only for the very rich and probably famous. In reality, chartering a private jet is becoming more affordable and a viable alternative to commercial air travel. Many business professionals charter private jets to save time and to enjoy enough privacy to continue working while en-route.
There are a certain few private jets whose over-the-top luxury impresses the whole world’s elite. Let’s take a closer look at the 5 most luxurious private jets flying in the sky.
1. Airbus ACJ320neo
What if you could make your no-expense-spared luxury New York apartment penthouse fly? That’s basically what happens with the Airbus A320neo. This $110 million dollar aircraft is taking luxury to new heights in 2020.
The passenger version of the jet is already in use by various airlines, including British Airways, Lufthansa, and Scandinavian Airlines. While this version can seat more than 180 people, the flying penthouse version is limited to 19 people, with a sleeping capacity for 17.
The interior is set up like an apartment, complete with a master bedroom and a spacious en-suite bathroom. No squeezing into a tiny airplane lavatory on this flight!
With a range of about 6,000 nautical miles, you can travel long distances without having to stop. Imagine hopping from Seattle to London or Los Angeles to Auckland on one flight.
2. Bombardier Global 7000
The next private jet on our list is a bit less expensive than the Airbus, ringing in at a mere $73 million dollars. However, don’t think you’ll be any less comfortable on a flight in this luxurious aircraft.
The jet features a full dining room and a full-size kitchen along with a suite dedicated to the crew. Enjoy a multimedia theater room for entertainment, spend some time lounging in the club suite, and take a nap in the private bedroom suite.
With a range of 7,700 nautical miles, this jet can get 19 people where they want to go in style.
3. Gulfstream G700
The G700 is the new flagship jet of Gulfstream’s line. The impressive aircraft just came out in 2019 but buyers are already clamoring to purchase their own $73 million dollar aircraft. With a cabin that is almost 57 feet long, 6 feet high, and 8 feet wide, passengers can certainly appreciate being able to stretch out comfortably during their flight.
A mere 19 passengers are “crammed” into this space and 10 can sleep comfortably. Enjoy an elaborate 6-place dining table or use the space as a conference room. Business passengers will appreciate the ability to keep doing business in the air with the jet’s complimentary high-speed WiFi.
Suffer from jet lag? Try flying in this baby for your next trip across time zones. The aircraft has been equipped with a circadian lighting system that simulates sunrise and sunset in flight to help the body begin adjusting to the new time zone.
You’ll have to try it for yourself to find out if the lights actually work or not, but there’s no doubt about this jet’s ability to take people long distances. With a maximum range of 7,500 nautical miles and a top speed of 0.90 Mach, this speedy jet will get you where you want to go in no time — not that you’ll be anxious to deplane.
4. Boeing 787 VIP Dreamliner
This extravagantly luxurious jet just might be the stuff dreams are made of. The size of the jet is hard to wrap your mind around. Available for an incredible price of $153 million dollars, this enormous jet has more floor space than the average American home with 2,762 square feet. Just the cabin is over 189 feet long and is super roomy at over 17 feet wide and 7 feet tall.
The Dreamliner can be outfitted to seat over 250 people. However, when used as a private jet, seating is limited to just 40. As you might imagine, those 40 get to kick back and relax in ultimate comfort as they travel around the world.
The lavish space inside looks more like an executive hotel suite offering passengers plenty of entertainment and lounging options.
By the way, on this jet you can reach basically anywhere in the world in just one flight. With a maximum range of 9,590 nautical miles, it’s no wonder people are willing to pay a premium for luxury and comfort.
5. Boeing Business Jet 747-8i
If you’ve ever seen a Dreamliner you might assume that with this aircraft Boeing has reached the epitome of luxury in the skies. But that would mean that you’ve never seen Boeing’s 747-8i.
As the largest private jet in the world, “The Queen of the Skies” comes with a $403 million dollar price tag. It doesn’t take long to see why.
Upon boarding the 4,800 square foot aircraft, you might wonder if you took a wrong turn and entered a lavish hotel suite and not an airplane. The dual-level aircraft can seat 400 people in the commercial version, however the private jet trades in the rows of seats for ornate suites, dining rooms, staterooms, and lounges.
The master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and luxurious shower commands the quietest spot on the aircraft, right in the nose under the cockpit. There are several other bedrooms, each with their own bathroom.
Head up to the upper level to enjoy a library and entertainment room with a large HD flatscreen TV. There is also a children’s play area and crew quarters.
A large salon is the centerpiece of the craft where passengers can gather to play games or just relax on the three couches around the coffee table and chat.
