Forbes issued a short overview of the fastest passenger jets in the world. Obviously business jets appeared to be the leaders as the speed is one of their certain advantages.
The Cessna Citation X featured for 7 passengers is the fastest passenger plane in the world, with a top speed of 700 miles an hour. The second is the Falcon 7X (685 miles an hour), it is followed by the Gulfstream G550 (Mach 0.887; 675 miles an hour) and the Gulfstream G500 (Mach 0.887; 673 miles an hour), all equipped to carry 8-12 passengers in average.
Before its 2003 retirement, the Concorde was the fastest passenger aircraft in the world. These days, it´s primarily private jet flyers benefiting from the fastest flights.
