1. Cessna Citation X+ (Mach 0.935).

Per the American Cessna Aircraft Company, the current fastest private jet leading this list is the Cessna Citation X+, although it is no longer in production, the plane can travel at Mach 0.935 with a capacity of 12 passengers. As the fastest commercial jet available on the market, the Citation X+ tops out at 3,460 nautical miles per hour and can fly distances from Los Angeles to New York in four hours or less. Two Rolls-Royce turbofan engines and Honeywell Primus 2000 autopilot avionics power this mid-size business jet. The Citation X+ isn’t just about speed, but this aircraft also offers comfortable space with a nearly 24-foot-long cabin, wide reclining seats, 13 large windows, a refreshment center, and a spacious aft lavatory. Time is money, that is the reason why many big companies choose private aviation and faster planes instead of average commercial aviation.

From Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation, the Gulfstream G-650 is the second-fastest private jet on the market to date with a maximum Mach speed of 0.925. This aircraft can travel non-stop up to 12,964 kilometers with a capacity of 18 passengers. The G-650 is one of the most popular private jets on the market. This plane makes the world smaller by connecting cities like New York and Tokyo nearly an hour faster than other large-cabin planes. With an 8-foot-6-inch/2.59-meter-wide cabin, the largest of its kind, the interior of the Gulfstream G650 helps create an exquisitely comfortable environment for its passengers, with up to four seating areas, 16 large windows, and seats that become beds for a night’s sleep.
