However, it may seem difficult to make a choice: which luxury private jet should you choose according to your priorities?

A wide range of luxurious private jets is available to you according to your requirements:
For a guaranteed time saving: the Gulfstream G650ER or the Bombardier Global 7000
- New cost: $63.24 million
Among the leaders in terms of private business jets, we can easily find the G650ER, the latest addition to the Gulfstream line. As a little jewel of aviation, it is remarkable for its speed, which can achieve 955 km/h, making the G650ER the fastest private jet in the world. Designed for long-haul flights, it can transport 19 passengers and can connect various non-stop hubs such as London and Singapore. Because the high technology of this aircraft can also be seen in its finishes, the passengers have access to the management system via a mobile application, for a complete control of the cabin: lighting, temperatures, window blinds…
For an optimized workspace: the Cessna Citation Longitude
- New cost: $24.5 – $33.1 million
The Citation Longitude is one of the latest models launched by Cessna, one of the largest manufacturers of business jets. Compared to its competitors, this private jet claims to be more autonomous, faster (maximum cruising speed of 876 km/h), and above all, it has one of the quietest cabins on the market. This last point is particularly interesting to take advantage of a flight in all serenity and to optimize the productivity of the managers and their collaborators. Equipped with 12 very comfortable armchairs, a bathroom and a kitchenette, the cabin is ideal for small meetings.
For a panoramic and outstanding experience: the Airbus ACJ 319 Neo
- New cost: $80.6 – $86.8 million
Featuring a futuristic design, the Neo range proposed by Airbus stands out for its very high standing with its panoramic roof. With the ACJ 319 Neo model, Airbus offers an original experience that challenges the latest technologies: it can project a fictitious sky in real time above the aircraft. With a capacity of 8 passengers, it is both functional and unique with its numerous rooms and features: bathrooms, a cinema screen, a bar, a bedroom, a dining room…
For an eco-friendly trip, at the cutting edge of technology: the ZA10 or the Dassault Falcon 2000LXS
- ZA10 development cost: $295-300 million
Coming soon into service, this hybrid electric aircraft will satisfy those who want to combine luxury and respect for the environment. In step with today’s requirements, the start-up Zunum Aero aims to enable eco-friendly travels thanks to a brand new generation of electric aircrafts. With a capacity of 12 passengers, the strength of the ZA10 lies in the use of innovative materials and a Safran turboshaft engine, which ensure both performance and cost reduction.
- New cost of the Falcon 2000LXS: $20-25 million
Equally efficient, and equipped with powerful yet low-polluting engines, the model launched by Dassault also has many advantages. This option is preferable to the ZAZ10 if you have a more limited budget but you want an ecological aircraft.
