Super Mid-Size Private Jet Comparison: Cessna Citation Latitude Vs Challenger 350


Due to their extended range, increased luggage capacity, and modern technology, super midsize jets are some of the most popular options for private jet charters.

Offering convenience and comfort to business travellers and discerning holidaymakers alike, jets such as the Cessna Citation Latitude and Bombardier Challenger 350 are two of the finest examples available.

Here we take a deeper look at both and investigate just what makes them so suitable for so many private jet charters across the globe.

Cessna Citation Latitude

The Cessna Citation Latitude is one of the most popular business jets in the world due to its combination of class-leading performance, innovative features, spacious cabin, and extensive range for an aircraft of its size.

The Citation Latitude can be configured to carry seven or eight passengers in absolute comfort in its cabin, where an exceptional recirculation system keeps the cabin air as clean as possible.

With space for 14 suitcases, the Citation Latitude's baggage hold is significantly larger than competitors like the Hawker 900XP, ensuring it provides one of the finest options in the world of private aviation.

The Latitude is powered by two Pratt & Whitney PW306D1 turbofan engines controlled by a state-of-the-art Garmin G5000 avionics system which make it a favourite of many business jet pilots around the world. .

The power and fuel efficiency offered enable the Citation Latitude to complete flights of more than 3000 miles. This means it is the ideal private jet charter option for popular US routes such as New York to LA, or flights from London to Istanbul, or Geneva to Dubai.

The Inside Story

The Cessna Citation Latitude offers a standard seat configuration of four chairs in club formation, with two additional seats in the back and a two-seat divan at the front. This front area can be reduced to house just a single seat to make space for a larger refreshment centre.

The extremely luxurious interior offers its passengers modern technology, including the ability to control window shades, temperature, entertainment, and lighting directly from their mobile phone. Combined with leather seats with leather seats which can be fully reclined, the Citation Latitude provides both business and pleasure travellers with the comfort and convenience to enjoy every moment of every flight.

Bombardier Challenger 350

The Challenger 350 has set numerous sales records since its launch, and with very good reason. With one of the largest, quietest, and most luxurious interiors in its class and the range to fly nonstop on routes such as London to New York or Dubai to Paris, it is an ideal option for private jet charter for groups of up to 9 passengers.

Powered by a pair of Honeywell HTF7350 turbofans which provide the Bombardier Challenger 350 with close to 15,000 lbs of thrust, it boasts incredible performance and extremely stable flying characteristics.

Alongside its comparatively large baggage compartment which is accessible in-flight and provides room for around 10 suitcases, the 350 is all a business or pleasure traveller could ask for.

Its onboard technology makes it a favourite of passengers and pilots alike. This is because those in the cabin can stream music and watch movies on angled touch screens available, and those in the cockpit have cutting-edge avionics including synthetic vision and MultiScan weather radar systems.

Equipped with more baseline features than the competition and offering premium enhancements as standard, the Challenger 350 is exceptional in its category.

The Inside Story

Inside its extremely quiet and spacious cabin, configuration options are plentiful. The Challenger 350 can be set up in either a double-club ‘Executive’ layout or a ‘Globetrotter’ layout with two seats swapped out for a three-person divan. The cabin chairs can also convert into up to four beds for night flights to ensure the utmost passenger comfort at all times.  

Both ergonomics and aesthetics are at the forefront of the Challenger 350’s cabin design. Personal items can be easily accessed in the baggage compartment, and sophisticated sound-suppressing materials ensure that flyers seeking the peace to complete important work are extremely well catered for. This is especially true since the 350 provides the capability to participate in video conferences whilst on board.


Both the Cessna Citation Latitude and the Bombardier Challenger 350 are exceptional aircraft for private jet charters. Their range, performance, and cabin technology ensure that longer trips can be completed in complete comfort without needing to sacrifice time dedicated to work.
