Commercial travel can be a hassle. Even when one flies first class, there are still travel delays, check ins, long lines at security, as well as long walks through massive international airports. The solution to this travel mess? A private jet. Private jets can be purchased, leased, or shared via membership schemes, making the luxury of a private jet a very attainable goal. Let’s take a look inside a private jet to see all that they have to offer.
The Citation Longitude by Cessna boasts that this luxury private jet is “a revolution in business aviation”. This super-midsize business jet offers great payload and high cruise speed for a lower total ownership cost. The Citation Longitude offers a comfortable cabin with customizable finishes, a quiet interior, and multiple standard features.
A peek inside the Citation Longitude’s cockpit shows how spacious it is, as well as how ergonomic the design is. Pilots have touch screen control of navigation and communication systems with the GarminTM 65000TM flight deck. The Citation Longitude also features fully integrated autothrottles in addition to the industry’s most advanced on-board diagnostic system, LinxUsTM. Whether you pilot your private jet yourself or hire a crew, flying this jet will be a delight.
In May of 2017, Airbus debuted the latest interior for its ACJ319neo private jet at the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition. The striking new interior, called the Infinito, is the result of a collaboration between Airbus Corporate Jets and the supercar maker, Automobili Pagani. The result is jaw dropping.
“In bringing together the best of the supercar and business jet worlds, we enable an elegant and seamless link for customers of both, while bringing a fresh approach to cabin design and satisfying very demanding standards,” Airbus Corporate Jets Managing Director, Benoit Defforge, said in a statement.
The Infinito interior has an innovative sky ceiling that displays a live view of the sky above the aircraft. Like a massive glass roof, the sky ceiling gives the cabin a feeling of airiness and spaciousness.
The Airbus A319neo can fly eight passengers for up to 15 hours of non-stop travel. The Airbus’ aerodynamics and ultra-efficient turbofans make it an excellent option for flying into or out of airports with tough operating conditions such as high heat or short runways. The basic model starts at $99.5 million, excluding the cost of the Infinito interior.

The Lineage 1000E offers a fully equipped two sided galley which include both hot and cold water, ice drawer, refrigerator, wine chiller, espresso machine, as well as ovens.

Luxury private planes have come a long way in a short period of time. As we wrap up this look at the inside of a private jet, let’s take a peek at a vintage private plane that recently sold at private auction for $430,000. Custom designed with red velvet and wood paneling by the original owner, Elvis Presley, this private plane is like a time capsule.
So which of these private jets would you choose?
