WANT to travel from New York to Los Angeles in just three and a half hours? It will cost you more than $30,000.
The exceptional price point is attributed to Bombardier’s Global 7500 business jet – the largest and longest-range private jet in the world.
With a range of 8,860 miles and up to 14 hours flight time from New York can reach to London, Moscow, Dubai and New Delhi.
The massive jet has a top speed of Mach 0.925 and can seat up to 19 passengers.
Launched in 2018, the aircraft has since been referred to as the “Ferrari of the skies”.
Its supersonic speed and exclusive features have attracted many celebrities, including Kylie Jenner.
Before rushing to find a ticket, those who want to try it themselves will have to pay upwards of $10,000 an hour.
For some, however, this price may be worth it.
Travelers will find four separate living areas on the jets, including a meeting room, dining room, entertainment room and master bedroom.
The private jet also features a huge galley with a microwave, espresso machine and refrigerator.
Throughout the main areas, passengers will find large wall-mounted TVs, massive windows, and retractable side tables.
The aircraft – valued at up to $75 million – also features Bombardier’s signature Nuage swivel seats, which are “ergonomically adjustable.”
Also, passengers are given access to small dials that allow them to adjust the temperature and lights of the plane.
While the aircraft seats 19, only about eight people can sleep comfortably.
Sleeping arrangements are limited to approximately two people in the bedroom, two people on the couch in the entertainment room, two in the meeting room, and two in the dining room.
Travelers will find lavatories at the front and rear of the aircraft, which are also located next to passenger wardrobes and staff items.
The Global 7500 is not only an upgrade for the passengers, but also for the flight crew.
In November, pilots for private charter company VistaJet – the largest operator of the Global 7500 – said Business Insider The improved flight deck design helps to improve safety and flight duty management and reduce own workload.
Specifically, the pilots have received “fly-by-wire” technology and emergency seats that are permanently facing to the side bombardier.
If you have the cash to spare, the company touts that passengers will have the “smoothest ride” of their lives thanks to Smooth Flex Wing technology.
According to Business Insider, VistaJet is the largest operator of the Global 7500 with 15 of the jets.
Travelers with deep pockets can also reportedly charter the plane from other companies including NetJets and Phenix Jet.
