Which light-size private jets have the most baggage capacity?

While light jets don’t have as much baggage capacity as larger jets, they do offer a fair amount. However, the amount of luggage these small yet mighty jets can hold is pretty generous in comparison to the size of the jet. At the top of the list, the Beechjet 400 holds the most baggage internally, and the Citation CJ2 has the largest external baggage compartment.

What else is a private light jet capable of?

When considering which private light jet has the most storage capacity, there are a few things to consider. Most jets offer interior dedicated storage space in addition to the exterior cargo space. This will also help determine how much carry-on baggage you can keep in the cabin with you. If you’re heading to the Alps for a ski vacation or to Pebble Beach for a round of golf, you’ll want to find a light jet that can accommodate your skis, snowboard, or golf clubs in addition to your own personal baggage.

The table below helps break down how much each light jet offers in terms of storage volume.

What is a light jet charter by definition?

A light jet is typically designed for shorter, domestic flights while still providing all the amenities of an upscale charter experience. Light jets are usually configured to seat six to eight passengers. However, our agents recommend limiting occupancy to just five or six for optimal comfort.

Most light jets make use of what little space they have and come with state-of-the-art entertainment systems, first-class business amenities, and a curtained or enclosed lavatory.

Many travelers prefer light jets for both personal and business use due to the jets nimble and economic features. This means they can utilize smaller runways and reach remote destinations much better than larger jet sizes.
