Which private jet has the longest range?  For the purpose of this exercise, we did not look at airliner sized private jets such as the Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) or Airbus Corporate Jet (ACJ). We also looked for data that would show range based on full capacity and NBAA IFR fuel reserves required from possible diversion at the destination airport, typically 45 minutes. 

According to the data analyzed by Private Jet Card Comparisons the private jet with the longest range is the Gulfstream G650, with a range of 7,825 miles followed by the Gulfstream G550 at 7,469 miles. Bombardier’s Global Express 6000 has a range of 7,228 statue miles. Tokyo to New York is 6,737 miles while Los Angeles to Athens is 6,889 if you are thinking about hopping to the Med for a luxury vacation or to meet up with your yacht. Of course, there is a myriad of factors such as temperature, runway length, airport elevation, winds and weather which impact the numbers.

Near the end of the list is the Beechcraft King Air 350i, not a jet but a turboprop, with a range of 690 miles. However, if you live in New York and want to go to South Bend, Indiana to see a University of Notre Dame football game, you’re in luck. The flight distance is 640 miles. The King Air 350i is the backbone of the WheelsUp fleet.
