Private Aviation

Across the Alps; Dubai to Geneva by Private Jet

From seven-star luxury to lakeside views, Dubai to Geneva by private jet takes you from one first-class haunt to another. A land of gold, chocolate, and Rolex watches marks Switzerland out as one of the finest destinations in the world, and gorgeous Geneva sits at the hilt when it comes to discovering the crème de la crème of swiss cities. From the annual auto show to picking the perfect timepiece; here are the finest private jets to catch when heading across the Alps and to the sparkling waterside of Geneva…

Citation Sovereign

The Citation Sovereign seems to sit somewhere comfortably between the Excel and the Citation X. This jumped up jet is perfect for those mid-range flights when you need the speed that 428 knots can deliver, along with the range of 2643 nm. With 8 seats, an impressive cabin size for comfort and the largest baggage space of any medium sized jet on the market, the Citation Sovereign is a solid choice.

Learjet 40 / 40XR

The Learjet 40 / 40 XR boasts both a faster cruise climb time, a quicker cruise time, and a higher take off weight than the original Learjet 40. The 9-seat configuration, hot and cold food and drink areas, and 20 percent larger cabin size in comparison with jets in its class, already earmark this bombardier beauty as having the edge. Add into the equation the fact that it has a range of 1824 nm and a speed of 425 knots and you will be touching down in the glacial lake land of Geneva in no time.

Hourly Rate Starting Around $3,252

Citation XLS

The Citation XLS is one of the most impressively updated offerings from Cessna’s medium jet archives. There is much to love about this jet –  especially for a slightly longer flight like from Dubai to Geneva. From the dual DVD players with in-seat monitors to the remote cabin temperature control, the ability to convert into 2 club four seating arrangements and first-class refreshment area. With a range of 2000 nm and a speed of 430 knots, the Citation XLS is a great mid-range option.

Hourly Rate Starting Around $4,029 | Cessna XLS Website

Falcon 20/ 200

The most successful of Dassault’s business jets, the Falcon 20/200 offers a strikingly high-performance of 2510 nm, a speed of 405 knots, and exceptional levels of comfort for an entourage of 8-10.  This classically styled jet means separate lavatory, refreshment area, and a wealthy amount of cabin and baggage space – just what you want when packing for the glitz of Geneva.

Hourly Rate Starting Around $4,694 | Dassault Falcon 20/200 Website
