Essentials for Every Private Jet Traveler

While we take care of the above amenities, there are still some essentials you should consider packing:

  • Clothing: Tailor your wardrobe to the type of trip—business attire for meetings, comfortable wear for leisure trips, or appropriate gear for adventure travels.
  • Essential Documents: Always carry your identification, travel documents, and any necessary health certifications or visas.
  • Personal Medications: While we stock a comprehensive first aid kit, personal medications should always be on your packing list.
  • Small Personal Items: Such as sunglasses, a good book, or a travel journal, to enhance your in-flight experience.

Luggage Logistics: Packing for Purpose

Understanding the logistics of luggage handling on a private jet can further streamline your preparation:

  • Luggage Space: Planet 9 jets can accommodate a minimum of 12 medium suitcases, providing ample storage for all your travel needs. However, packing efficiently with soft bags can optimize space and ease of handling.
  • Accessibility: Pack items you’ll need during the flight in a carry-on that can be kept within easy reach.

  • Business: Include chargers for all devices, business documents, and perhaps an extra outfit for extended stays.
  • Leisure: Consider leisure wear, swimwear, or evening attire depending on your destination.
  • Adventure: Don’t forget gear like hiking boots, weather-appropriate clothing, and any special equipment if not available on-site.
