Upon selecting the private jet adapted to your request, our team evaluates several parameters such as the number of seats, the range of the aircraft, and the capacity of the luggage hold. 

Each private jet category offers an average luggage hold which can vary from one aircraft type to another. At IBC Aviation, we recommend that you inform your charter advisor of the number or format of the luggage you wish to bring onboard. 

The below information is provided as a guide only, the weight of luggage can also impact flight range if the requested itinerary approaches the range of the aircraft.
