Private jets' range: how far can they fly?

Tuesday 24 May 2022 Blog, Discover the Aircraft

What is the longest distance a private jet can fly? Here are the three private jets that can cover the longest distances

There's no a unique answer to this question, because the distance a private jet can fly can vary according to the size of the aircraft, number of passengers and luggage, and the fuel capacity.

Since private jets are used to carry a small group of passengers, they are unlikely to cover the same distances as public airlines.

Normally, a small aircraft can fly 1,500 miles without refuelling, while the largest can cover a distance of 4,000 miles.

In this article, we will see the three private jets capable to cover the longest distances.

But if you need more information about booking a private flight, you can visit our website through this link.

The 3 private jets with the longest range

1. Bombardier Global 7500

The Bombardier Global 7500 is the private jet with the longest range, and can fly 7,700 nautical miles (which means 8,861 miles or 14,260 km!).

As you guess, this range is outstanding.

No wonder that, in 2019, this aircraft flew from Sydney to Detroit in 17 hours without stopping, setting the new record for the longest journey ever.

Thanks to its design, the Bombardier Global 7500 can travel at a speed of 516 knots. In other words, this will make it one of the fastest business jets experiences.

And what about the benefits?

This aircraft can carry 19 passengers, and it boasts the largest natural light in the cabin that you can find on a private jet, along with 100% fresh air.

Furthermore, it can easily heat and cool the cabin just in a blink of an eye.

The Global has separate spaces for different purposes, and the cherry on top is the full-size bed, which means you will be able to take a proper nap during the journey.

2. Gulfstream G700

Second to the Global 75000 there's the new entry Gulfstream G700, or simply G700.

As the Global 7500, it can cruise at 516 knots and can carry the same number of passengers.

The only difference, as you can easily guess, concerns the range: the G700 can fly 'only' 8,630 miles without refuelling.

That means that there are very few destinations G700 cannot reach without stopping, such as Tokyo to New York, for instance.

This private jet is thought for long distance journeys, and to make the passengers feel relaxed during all flight.

In fact, there are five living spaces with 19 seats that can be turned into comfortable beds.

But there's more.

If passengers want to clean up, they can use the washroom, included the shower!

Let me tell you: there's nothing better than arriving at a destination feeling relaxed and as fresh as a daisy!

3. Gulfstream G650ER

The G650ER is the third of our list, and can cover the same distance as the Gulfstream G700 at the same speed.

But let's have a quick view of the benefits of this luxury private jet:

  • It can carry 19 passengers
  • It has a private stateroom
  • The cabin is quiet and can be controlled from a mobile app
  • Passengers can regulate temperature and lights
  • It guarantees 100% fresh air

Just imagine how cool it can be. If you want to rest for a few hours before the disembarkation, you can turn off the lights while lying in bed by simply using your phone.

Amazing, isn't it?

The only difference concerns the sleeping capacity.

We said that all three private jets can carry up to 19 passengers on board. But while, in G700 only 13 seats at time can be turned into beds, here it lows to 10, due to the fact that there is less space.
