19 Jul Super Light 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 light and super-light private jets, there’s a lot less luggage space than 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.
External baggage capacity is the amount of baggage space accessed from outside the aircraft and may not have pressurisation or temperature control.
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 seen flights where clients have had to leave items/cases behind as the aircraft was not the right one. This usually happens when the broker has not explained that certain aircraft are not equipped to tale a lot of luggage or they do not check with the operator prior to the flight. A good charter broker will inform their clients of how much luggage is acceptable.
Of course, your luggage isn’t necessarily measured in cubic feet, for example golf clubs, skis, dive gear and so forth, so before you charter a super-light jet make sure you let your broker know what your’e thinking of travelling with.

AIRCRAFT 1: CITATION XL/XLS/XLS+
The Citation XL/XLS model is the most popular super light jet available for charter flights. Ideal for travelling around Europe with out the need for a fuel stop. Seating up to eight people the cabin has a spacious feel to it, leather seats, a good size toilet and full bar.
The spacious cabin of the Citation XL/XLS+ is comparable to the interior of a mid-size jet. It features a comfortable headroom. Up to eight passengers can enjoy the flight in the comfortable expanded leather seats.
On each flight there will be catering suitable to the time of day. Any catering and bar is included in your price. With seating for up to eight this means that you may want to bring a lot of luggage whether especially for a family holiday such as Manchester to Malaga.
The baggage compartment can hold up to 13 cases/bags assuming your average piece of luggage is less than 5 cubic feet. Because of a huge luggage compartment this jet is perfect for golfing – and skiing trips.
AIRCRAFT 2. Embraer Phenom 300
The Embraer Phenom 300 is another popular aircraft in the super light category. Seating up to eight people in comfort around Europe, the aircraft has a luxury feel to the cabin. g it comfortable for up to 8 passengers.

AIRCRAFT 3. BOMBARDIER LEARJET 75
The Bombardier Learjet 75 is the new kid on the block in the super light category. A stunning and luxurious interior the aircraft can fly you direct from Manchester to Marrakech with ease.

We recommend taking 7-8 medium size pieces of luggage. External 50 ft³ (1.4 m³) heated baggage compartment with an additional 15 ft³ (0.4 m³) of internal storage. Total luggage capacity 65 cubic ft (6 Golf Bags, 7 Suitcases, and 4 Carry-ons)
If you’re flying on the other aircraft in the super-light category then we definitely recommend that you speak to a charter broker before booking a flight.
As your broker we always recommend on super light 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 more worries over missing skis, snowboards, boots or suitcases.
Remember when you land your bags come off straight away and are taken to your waiting transport, so there’s no hanging around the baggage reclaim on landing.
The only real way to ensure you and your luggage arrive at the same time
