It’s no surprise that most people associate private air charter with small six-seater jets or luxury heavy jets complete with full beds, couches, and dining areas. But what are your options when you need to get a group of 50 people from one place to another?
If you’re traveling in a group, there are a few planes that are best suited to accommodate every member without sacrificing comfort or style.
The Benefits of Flying Private for Group Trips
Here’s the truth: flying on a private charter is no longer a luxury experience reserved for the super rich. When you have large groups traveling together, acquiring a private plane becomes less expensive, and in some cases, it could be more cost effective than trying to squeeze everyone onto the same commercial flight.
Even better, your group can skip the long lines at security, parking hassles, and the other stresses of flying commercial.
From sports teams to executive groups to family reunions and more, the following jets can provide an optimal solution for group air charter:
Embraer ERJ 145
The ERJ 145 was originally designed for regional travel, but patrons quickly saw its potential as a group air charter option. With seating for up to 50 passengers and additional crew members, it now enjoys a reputation as one of the best options for larger travel parties.
Two Rolls Royce engines allow the jet to fly at a speed of 517 miles per hour, allowing you to reach your destination quickly and cost effectively. The ERJ also comes in a long range model that boosts performance by 15% and can take you farther than the standard model.
Bombardier CRJ Series
Bombardier has earned its place in aviation as a leader in safety, innovation, and luxury, and its CRJ upholds all of the above. This series is arguably the most popular in the industry, with Bombardier claiming that a CRJ lands or takes off somewhere in the world about every five seconds.
The CRJ family consists of multiple models, including the CRJ 550, the CRJ 700, and the CRJ 900. The 700 provides seating for up to 78 passengers, while the 900 is a stretched-out version of the 700 and offers a few additional seats. The 550 is the newest to the lineup, serving as the first triple class 50 seat aircraft in the world. It also offers more legroom than any other aircraft in its class.
Boeing 737-500 VIP
Last but certainly not least, the Boeing 737-500 VIP airliner truly lives up to its VIP designation. This powerful business jet features a class-like seating configuration for up to 56 passengers. There’s plenty of cargo space for each traveler, ample leg and elbow room, cushy seats, and good lighting. And in true Boeing fashion, everything on board the aircraft has been thoughtfully designed for comfort and luxury.
