23 Jul Mid Size Aircraft Luggage
When you decide to charter a private jet, it’s imperative to choose the right aircraft, that you’re able to fit all your luggage in the hold of the aircraft. With mid size private jets, there’s not as much luggage space as there is on larger private jets.
Internal baggage capacity is the amount of available baggage which can be kept inside the aircraft where there will be pressurisation and temperature control. Luggage is accessible in flight.
External baggage capacity is the amount of baggage space accessed from outside the aircraft and may not have pressurisation or temperature control. Luggage is not accessible during the flight from the cabin.
Total number of bags is the total number of bags, using an average 5 cubic feet per bags plus 2 cubic feet of space between bags (unusable space) that you could expect to fit in the aircraft.
Excess baggage is the amount of baggage that is in excess of the free allowance in size, number, or weight permitted for the journey.
At the operators discretion, this may may have to be sent as freight instead. So it may be time to simply switch to a smaller bag. This will save you any stress at the terminal worrying about whether your bag is too big and will have to be left behind.
Every operator has its own policies with regard to baggage allowance on their aircraft.
Pack Light For Your Flight
We have recently noticed that passengers flying out have had to leave items/cases behind as the aircraft was not the right one.
This usually happens when the broker has not explained to the client that certain aircraft are not equipped to take a lot of luggage or they do not check with the operator prior to the flight.
A good and knowledgeable charter broker will inform their clients of how much luggage is acceptable.
It’s always a good idea to make sure you let your broker know what your’e thinking of travelling with prior to your flight.
Jet aircraft with a MTOW between 22 000 and 30 000 lbs.

- Hawker 750
- Hawker 800XP
- Hawker 900XP
- Learjet 60

These aircraft are security screening flights at Manchester private jet terminal, so you will need to arrive at the airport thirty minutes prior to your departure.
We recommend these three mid-size aircraft if your travelling with a fair bit of luggage.
AIRCRAFT 1: Hawker 750
This spacious midsize aircraft with great range and an impressive spacious interior features stand-up headroom and a full refreshment centre. Capable of flying direct from Manchester to Marrakech.
The cabin arrangement allows for more formal seating in a club-four layout around executive wooden tables or the ability to relax on the comfortable three place divan.
The Hawker 750 also features an external baggage compartment alongside the internal areas, increasing volume to an impressive 79 cubic feet. 6-8 medium size cases or bags are ideal for this aircraft.
Aircraft 2: Bombardier Learjet 60
The Learjet 60 is a good mid size private jet, for flights up to five hours. Capable of flying direct from Manchester to Mykonos.
With its unique combination of high-speed performance and true mid-size comfort and style the completely redesigned Bombardier Learjet 60XR offers owners the best of all worlds.
Learjet 60 XR floor plan is designed to provide 7 passengers with maximum convenience and flexibility.
The most reliable and thrilling ride in its class with more advanced technology features than ever before including luxurious wide-aisle and stand-up cabin space.
This standard configuration with the 3-seat divan in the front of the aircraft providing a serene space for relaxation, while an executive club seating arrangement in the rear of the aircraft provides ample space for business conferencing.
A belted lavatory seat certified for take-off and landing is also provided for Flight attendant. 3-seat divan and club seats are covered by oat leather.
With a luggage capacity of 60 cubic ft, we recommend 7-8 pieces of small – medium soft sided cases or bags.
Aircraft 3: Hawker 900XP
The Hawker 900XP is a favourite with our clients due to its range and payload. Capable of flying direct from Manchester to the Canary Islands.
The world’s best selling mid-size business jet delivers an unrivalled combination of range, speed and payload. Carrying up to eight passengers and their luggage, this aircraft is perfect for both holidays and business trips.
The Hawker 900XP is the latest variant of the 125-series equipped with enhanced efficiencies, the latest safety features and cabin extras.
Fitted with WIFI and on-board espresso machines, it provides a heavy jet experience from a mid-size cabin.
The only draw back if this aircraft is the relatively small luggage space. Holding approximately 48cu ft (8 small/medium) size cases or bags.
Accessible during the flight.
If you’re flying on the other aircraft in the mid-size category then we definitely recommend that you speak to a charter broker before booking a flight.
As your broker we always recommend on mid-size jets such as the above that you bring soft small to medium size cases, as these are easier to fit into the hold on these aircraft.
Although the crew will be able to wiggle and fit pieces in it’s much easier this way and means that you can fly safely and comfortably.
Travel With Your Luggage
Your luggage comes with you and stays with you on a privately chartered jet. So no need to worry about missing bags, skis, snowboards or suitcases.
Remember when you land your bags come off the aircraft straight away and then taken to your waiting transport, so there’s no hanging around the baggage reclaim on landing.
