When you hire a private jet it’s important to understand how much luggage you can take before you fly. Unlike commercial aircraft, private jets have several different types of aircraft.
Each type of aircraft have different luggage capacities. A bit like car boot storage. Regardless of how many people are travelling, the hold on private jets do vary a lot. Our standard checked baggage allowance is 20kg per bag/case.
Luggage Policy on flights are prepared on the basis of a 25kg per person hold luggage allowance – the maximum weight for individual pieces of baggage should not exceed 25kg (items found to be in excess of 25kg will be labelled as ‘Heavy’).
In situations where baggage is deemed excessive in either weight or dimension, the crew will reserve the right to refuse these items. Particular baggage and belongings including heavy or large items, sporting goods, electric mobility aids and firearms, etc. must be declared in advance of travel to ensure suitability for carriage.
Smaller aircraft such as the Citation XLS can accommodate up to 9 standard size cases. Always subject to captain’s discretion.
On larger aircraft such as the Embraer Leagcy 650 you can take at least 20 standard size cases. So before you book please let us know how much luggage you intend to take.
If you’re thinking of taking golf clubs then you will need to charter a larger aircraft. The Embraer Praetor 600 is also a good choice of aircraft for taking golf clubs and bulky items.
To ensure that travel is comfortable and safe for all customers, it is important that baggage carried in the cabin comply with a set of rules and allowances.
You may carry on board one piece of hand luggage as long as it weighs no more than 10kg. You can also bring a small, personal item on board (such as a handbag, laptop bag)
Permitted to bring one carry-cot or one fully collapsible stroller into the cabin if there is room. If there is no space for these items in the cabin, they will have to go in the hold, space permitting.
All luggage rules are subject to captain’s discretion.
In order to ensure that the liquids you bring on board comply with international regulations, please make certain that they are packaged and transported in the following manner.
Liquids containers – 100ml maximum – All liquids, gels and aerosols, pastes, lotions, creams, drinks and other items of similar consistency must be in containers with a capacity no greater than 100ml.
Those carried in containers larger than 100ml will not be accepted, even if the container is only partially filled. These containers must be placed in a transparent re-sealable plastic bag of a maximum capacity not exceeding one litre.
Larger bags or bags that are non-sealable, such as fold-over sandwich bags, are not allowed. The containers must fit comfortably within the plastic bag, which is to be completely closed.
You will need to present the plastic bag for visual examination at the security screening point. Only one bag per customer will be permitted.
