FAQ: how does a Private Jet lavatory look like?
Are you wondering how does a bathroom on a Private Jet looks like?
Considering the elegance and the style that represents the entire jet, the lavatory area is not less elegant nor important.
Well…. There’s a toilet!
Indeed there is a flashing toilet, in most cases with a vacuum system that collects the waste into a waste tank.
The waste tank is emptied and cleaned every day, or maximum every two days from the appropriated service provided by the airport.
There is a wash basin with convenient lightning.
Usually, the lavatory is located at the back of the cabin and has a sliding or folding door that separates it from the rest of the cabin.
Heavy jets such as Global 6000, Gulfstream G650, Falcon 8X have two lavatories: one is meant to be for the crew and is located at the front of the cabin.
The bigger one in the rear is the customer’s lavatory.
Some big jets have even a shower, for a home-like flight experience.
