Not only is traveling by private plane quick and direct, it also means you won’t have to contend with long waits in the terminal or at security. If you need to get from A to B speedily and are searching for the fastest private jet available, we’re here to help. We’ve put together some handy information on typical private jet speeds and which of our planes are the fastest.

How fast is a private jet?

Most commercial aircraft typically fly at around 460-575 mph, or 740-930 km/h, according to Flight Deck Friend. But private jet speed can vary depending on a variety of factors, such as the weight onboard and the weather conditions. Wind speed can have a particularly large impact on how fast a private jet can fly – so the speed and direction of the wind on the date you travel may affect the time your journey takes. Strong headwinds will usually slow the jet down resulting in slightly longer flight times, while tailwinds can help the plane travel faster and reduce fuel consumption.
