The Covid-19 pandemic has sparked an increase in demand for all kinds of private jet charters including long-haul flights. Long-haul private charters mean fewer transfers, and far fewer fellow passengers, than customers experience on commercial flights. This has made them very attractive at a time when many travellers are trying to limit their exposure to people and places. Consequently, long-range private jets have become more popular than ever. Here’s our guide to the top five most requested jets for long-haul flights.

Our Top Five Most Popular Long-Range Jets

Large jets

Large jets have average maximum speeds of 530 mph (853km/h) and ranges of around 4,000 miles (6437 kilometers). They offer a luxurious cabin and multiple amenities to make your journey as comfortable and convenient as possible. These can include generous external baggage compartments, the latest technology for doing business in the air, a full galley, and an attentive flight crew to provide gourmet catering. However, they’re still small enough to make use of smaller airports inaccessible to major airlines. Large jets accommodate around 10-16 passengers.
