The Cessna 700 Citation Longitude is a super-midsize jet developed and manufactured by Cessna (Textron Aviation).

The development of the Citation Longitude was originally announced in 2012 and the aircraft first flew in October 2016. Some three years later, in late 2019, the Citation Longitude was delivered to its first customer.

The Cessna Citation Longitude shares the same cabin width and flat-floor cabin as the smaller Citation Latitude. However, the Longitude features a longer cabin, higher passenger capacity, a greater transatlantic range as well as external differences including blended winglets and T-tail design.

The Challenger 650 is a heavy jet manufactured by Canadian manufacturer Bombardier. As the latest development of the Challenger 600 family of aircraft, the 650 is based on the original Challenger 600 developed by Canadair.

Retaining many design features from its predecessor, the Challenger 650 improves on the widest-in-class cabin design, takeoff performance and maximum range elements of the very popular 605.

With a typical configuration accommodating up to 12 passengers and a maximum range of 7,408km (4,000nm), the Challenger 650 brings the most popular city pairs within reach. The aircraft’s industry-leading dispatch reliability of over 99.9% delivers peace of mind for all business and leisure requirements.

The Global 6000 is an ultra-long-range jet developed and manufactured by Canadian manufacturer Bombardier.

Formerly marketed as the Global XRS, the Bombardier Global 6000 entered commercial service in 2005 and remains in production to date.

Based on Bombardier’s original Global Express, the Global 6000 incorporates improved handling, a higher cruise speed, improved cabin layout and lighting, as well as an upgraded Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion avionics suite.

The Global 6000’s typical cabin configuration typically accommodates 14 passengers. Boasting a maximum range of 11,112km (6,000nm), the Global 6000 brings most intercontinental city pairs within reach or all with one fuel stop.

The Bombardier Global 5000 is an ultra-long-range jet developed and manufactured by Bombardier.

Announced in 2001, the Global 5000 was the second aircraft to be developed in the Bombardier Global Express family. Developed with a shorter cabin and lower range than the Global Express, the Global 5000 was aimed at operators requiring the trusted reliability and performance of its predecessor but not the extreme range capabilities.

With a maximum range of 9,630km (5,200nm), the intercontinental Bombardier Global 5000 makes all but the longest missions possible, capable of flying non-stop from continental Europe to central North America.

The Hawker 800 series is a family of midsize jets developed and manufactured by Hawker Beechcraft in the USA. They are all derivatives of the de Havilland DH125 (later the Hawker Siddeley HS.125) which flew for the first time in 1962.

The Hawker 800 family consists of the Hawker 750, 800, 800XP, 850XP and 900XP. The original Hawker 800 – initially the HS-125-800 – entered production in 1983 before being superseded by the 850XP which was certified in 2006. Differences included the addition of blended winglets to increase range, a fully updated avionics suite, and a redesigned interior for improved comfort.

In 2006, Hawker announced two further variants of the Hawker 800 family; the Hawker 750 and 900XP. The 750 variant has a slightly reduced range by replacing the ventral fuel tank with a heated external baggage compartment. The 900XP features uprated Honeywell TFE731-50BR engines for an increased maximum range of 5,425km (2,929nm).

Production of the Hawker 800 family ceased in 2013 after approximately 650 were manufactured and delivered worldwide.

A light jet manufactured by Nextant Aerospace in the USA, the Nextant 400XT is based on the design of the ever-popular Beechjet 400A, with modifications including more fuel-efficient and powerful Williams FJ44-3AP turbofan engines and a new avionics suite from Rockwell Collins.

Although based on the airframe of the Beechjet 400A, the Nextant 400XT is manufactured in a factory-like process and utilises up to 88% replaced and overhauled components, which enables it to be considered a new aircraft.

The Nextant 400XT has a maximum range of 2,005 nautical miles, some 672 greater than that of the Beechjet 400A, allowing the Nextant 400XT to serve city pairs that weren’t possible by its predecessor. Other modifications include newly rebuilt seats, custom upholstery and cabinetry as well as an all-new cabin management system.

The 737 Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) line-up are adaptations of Boeing’s best-selling airliner family. Comprised of three variants, the BBJ family consists of:

  • Boeing 737BBJ2, based on the 737-800 airliner

  • Boeing 737BBJ3, based on the 737-900ER airliner

Featuring redesigned cabins, extra fuel tanks and enhanced security, the Boeing Business Jet is perceived as the one of the most luxurious and prestigious private jets on the charter market. With separated living areas and bedrooms, as well as full stand-up shower facilities and optional conference and office rooms, the BBJ is popular with VVIPs and heads of state. The Boeing Business Jet family also feature a full galley bringing unlimited culinary options onboard with you.

The Embraer Lineage 1000 is an ultra-large business jet developed and manufactured by Embraer.

Based on the Embraer 190 regional jet airliner, the Lineage 1000 was officially launched as a private jet in 2006. With a cabin area up to four times larger than other private jets, the cabin of the Lineage 1000 is typically divided into five fully customisable areas. Common options are master suites, offices, bathrooms and stand-up showers.

Despite its size, the Lineage 1000 typically accommodates up to 19 passengers. With a maximum range of 8,504km (4,592nm), the Embraer Lineage 1000 brings city pairs such as Rome to the Maldives and Chicago to Honolulu within reach.

The Gulfstream G650 is an ultra-long-range jet designed and manufactured by Gulfstream Aerospace in the United States. First flying in November 2009, the Gulfstream G650 entered service in December 2012.

Boasting an impressive maximum range of 12,964km (7,000nm), the G650 brings most intercontinental city pairs within reach without the requirement of a fuel stop. Following the success of the initial G650 program, Gulfstream developed the G650ER which boasts an extended range of some 926km (500nm).

Since its introduction to service, the G650 and G650ER have seen over 500 airframes manufactured and delivered to operators all over the world. The G650 is also used by many Government bodies for transporting heads of state and officials on international and intercontinental duties.
