Hosting over 5 million visitors per year, the city has a great deal of attractions, amenities, and things to do and see. Let us help you get there in style. BitLux our private jet charter service is acclaimed for our above and beyond attitude towards service, exceptional customer care and support, convenience and impressive concierge services for luxury travelers.
Portland first became a city in 1843, when the land was claimed by business partners Asa Lovejoy and William Overton. The city was almost named Boston, as Asa Lovejoy hailed from Massachusetts, but the toss of a coin decided that this Oregon city should be named after Portland, Maine.
After the civil war, the city became a major port, shipping goods like lumber, wheat, fresh vegetables, and fish to both San Francisco and around the world.
It doesn’t matter if you are flying for business or for pleasure, our goal is to make your travels to and from Portland as pleasant as possible.

There are 4 main airports conveniently located in Portland. This means you will have the flexibility to fly in on any size jet you choose.
Depending on how far you are looking to travel, you will need to charter a jet which suits your specifications. For short trips of around 1500 miles, you should look at small cabin/light jets. These typically hold up to 7 people with luggage allocations. If you are looking to charter a private jet from Portland to Fort Lauderdale, or jet from Portland to Chicago, then a light jet may be your best option. Some of the Light jets available for Portland charter are the Hawker 400XP, Citation CJ3, and Citation Ultra.
For longer flights, a midsize cabin is required. These jets in Portland are more comfortable than a small jet and can fly between many U.S states nonstop, with a passenger capacity of 8. Midsizes, like the Hawker 800XP, Citation Excel, or Learjet 60, are great for a fair distance and comfortable on jet charters that are 2 hours or more – such as, Portland to Denver or Houston to Portland.
For longer domestic trips or intercontinental air charter, such as Portland to Los Angeles, or even Seattle to Portland. we suggest super midsize jet, such as the Challenger 300 or Hawker 1000. These are designed for longer domestic flights and even light transatlantic travel, with a typical passenger capacity of 9 people.
Lastly, if you are looking to a private jet charter from Portland to Shanghai, or other International destinations, then a Heavy cabin jet or Ultra Long Range is required. These heavy cabin and ultra-long range jets are the pinnacle of luxury in private travel. With a passenger capacity of 16, these heavy jets can get you from one place to another in style, perfect for transoceanic travel.
If you are a traveling in a large group for business, then it is advised that you look towards the large cabin or heavy cabin jets. Some examples of Heavy and Ultra Long Range charter jets are the Falcon 2000, Gulfstream G550, Falcon 7x, and Challenger 604/605.
