These flying palaces are perfect for group charters for corporations, professional sports teams, royal families and international delegations. VIP Airliners typically feature a master bedroom with bathroom and shower, and also a private area for both business meetings and entertaining guests. Popular models of VIP Airliners for charters include Boeing’s BBJ, Embraer’s Lineage 1000, and Airbus’ A319CJ (Corporate Jetliner). They typically have a cabin height of over six and a half feet, and cabin length ranges from 65 feet to over 100 feet.

The A319CJ Corporate Jetliner is Airbus’ corporate jet version of the A319. It incorporates removable auxiliary fuel tanks which are installed in the cargo compartment, and an increased service ceiling of 41,000 feet. The A319CJ has an impressive range capability of 7,015 miles.
The Airbus ACJ318 Elite is the smallest and latest addition to the Airbus ACJ series of VIP Airliners. With seating for up to 19 passengers, the ACJ318 is able to carry larger groups in a cabin with plenty of space and lots of freedom to relax or move around. A sophisticated cabin management system features TV monitors connected to exterior cameras that give passengers a 360 degree external view underneath the aircraft or a direct view with zoom capability of the over flying area.
The Boeing B757-VIP is a twin-engine medium-range VIP Airliner incorporating advanced technology for exceptional fuel efficiency, low noise levels, increased passenger comfort and top operating performance. Currently, the world’s most recognizable and famous Boeing 757-VIP Airliner is Donald Trump’s N757AF.
The Boeing B767-VIP is an exclusive wide body VIP Airliner, or “bizliner”, dedicated to private charter services or short-term lease for Government Heads of State, Global Corporations, Royal Families, and Ultra High-Net-Worth Individuals (HNWI’s). In dual VIP/Business charter configuration the B767’s elegant and efﬁcient cabin allows for world leaders to travel in extreme comfort and privacy at the front, with Business Class seating at the rear of the aircraft.
Boeing BBJ is the ultimate private jet for any VIP charter requirement. The BBJ’s luxurious cabin is huge and makes the aircraft a top choice for tour groups, corporate group movements, international special events, professional sports team charters, heads of state, or VVIP delegations. Features include Wi-Fi Internet, AIRSHOW, satellite phone, digital TV screens, and a private bedroom with shower.
To better suit the VIP Airliner charter demand, Embraer added auxiliary fuel tanks, nearly doubling the EMB-190’s range. As a result, the Lineage 1000 is gaining popularity in international charter markets in Europe, the Middle East and now Asia after the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) has granted type certification for the aircraft.
