How much luggage can I bring on a Private Jet flight?

Private Jet, Luggage

As we enter the summer holiday season you may wonder if all the luggage you wish to carry on your vacation will fit on your private jet flight, and what kind of equipment are you allowed to bring?

Usually, there is sufficient space for you to bring what you need on your Private Jet

The exact amount of luggage you can take depends on different factors such as the type of aircraft you are flying on, number of passengers onboard, length of runway, and what type and size of luggage you have.

As a general rule, there will fit at least one suitcase and a small carry-on bag per passenger – based on the maximum number of passengers the aircraft can carry.

Large jets, such as the Global 6000 have big baggage holds to handle sufficient amounts of luggage and are a good choice if you are looking to take the whole family on vacation and plan to bring recreational items onboard such as golf clubs or other sports equipment.

What can I bring on a private jet?

There are plenty of things you can bring on a private jet that may not be allowed on a commercial flight, such as:

- Pets (they will fly onboard with you, and not in the baggage hold as on commercial flights)

- Full-size liquids

- Golf clubs

- Bicycles

- Skis and snowboards

- Hunting or archery equipment for sporting purposes

Please always double check with our team before arriving with these items to make sure they can be accommodated appropriately.

A huge advantage compared to commercial flights is that on most private jets, you will be able to access your luggage during the flight, as the luggage hold and passengers are situated on the same level.
