Which heavy private jets have the most baggage capacity? 

Travelers looking for jets that offer the best of comfort, convenience and speed gravitate towards heavy jet charters. Designed for journeys of up to roughly eight hours – or 6,000 miles – of non-stop travel, heavy jets are ideal for long-distance trips. If you’re looking for a jet that meets this expectation and provides the most amount of luggage capacity, the Embraer Lineage 1000 is just what you’ve been looking for.

What else is a heavy jet capable of?

Though some clients prefer to book a private jet based on the most luggage capacity, it’s important to look at all aspects of the charter. From the number of passengers it can accommodate to age of the aircraft to take-off performance, there’s a lot to consider when selecting an aircraft.

To determine which heavy jet is best for you and your travel plans, the table below highlights all of these features.

What is a heavy jet charter by definition?

Often referred to as ‘bizliners,’ heavy jets are the top dogs in private aviation. Biziners provide up to 16 passengers with all the convenience of a traditional, modern-day boardroom. From dedicated meeting areas to satellite telephones and everything in between, heavy jets are great for business executives traveling between international offices.

One of the most sought-after features of a heavy jet is the cabin space. Passengers travelling for leisure appreciate the endless cabin configuration options, especially the ones that feature lounge areas and private bedrooms. For additional comfort, many heavy jets offer private washrooms complete with showers.

These large jets often come equipped with a full-size galley, which means passengers can enjoy a broad variety of meals, snacks, and refreshments while travelling to their destination.
