On most private jets, you will be able to access your luggage during the flight. That’s because luggage and passengers are situated on the same level. This is in contrast to commercial airlines, where checked luggage is stored in a cargo hold.
On private jets, luggage is typically stored in the front or back of the aircraft. Or a combination of both. The larger the aircraft, the more can be stored inside.
On large private jets, luggage is often stored in a dedicated compartment behind the lavatory, granting passengers easy access to their bags.
Does the aircraft size affect whether or not someone has access to the luggage?
It’s easier to access your luggage in larger jets as there is more accessible storage space. For smaller jets, this varies from one aircraft to another. It’s likely that, on a smaller jet, access to luggage will be limited.
