    Midsize Jet vs Super Midsize Jet

    Cabin's Comparison

    To meet the various needs of business aviation users, aircraft manufacturers have developed several types of business jets. 

    All private jets belong to a specific category as follows: Very Light Jet, Light jet, Midsize jet, Super Midsize Jet, Heavy Jet, and Ultra Long Range Jet. Midsize and Super Midsize Jets are the most used categories across Europe, and each differs in range or cabin. 

    Charter a Midsize Jet :

    Aircraft from the Midsize category offer 6 to 8 seats and a maximum range of 4’700km or 4 to 5 hours’ flight time (which fluctuates based on the number of passengers onboard). These cabins can connect Paris to Athens or London to Moscow.

    A look inside shows that the average cabin’s height in this category varies between 1.50m and 1.73m. The volume of luggage compartment tops at 2.5 m3 for some aircraft like the Citation Excel, Citation XLS or XLS +, allowing clients to bring on average 4 large suitcases and 4 carry-ons.

    Charter a Super Midsize jet :

    Super Midsize Jets offer 7 to 9 seats depending on the configuration and type of aircraft. Jets in that category exceed the maximum range of Midsize jets and can travel up to 6,200 kilometers or 5 to 6 hours based on the number of passengers onboard.  The cabins of Super Midsize Jets allow most travelers to stand up with a minimum height of 1.70m and a maximum of 1.90m on certain aircraft. The volume of the luggage compartment is around 3.5 m3 on average, making it 40% larger than that of the Midsize category. Finally, passengers flying on Super Midsize Jets can benefit from the VIP service of a flight attendant.
