Flying in Style: The Private Jet Set Diaries of Celebs And Their Planes

By Hans A

Let’s face it, we all enjoy traveling in style. What is more stylish than flying to your destination inside a sick jet? If you actually own that jet, well, that is even better. As satisfying as that idea is, owning a jet is almost impossible for most mere mortals. These sophisticated machines cost an arm and a leg to buy and operate.

However, owning one of these bad boys might make your life easier if you work in certain career fields. A private jet is the way to go if, for example, you perform music across the globe or need to be on movie sets in all sorts of exotic locations worldwide.

The people on this list don’t have to pinch pennies to afford their opulent commute. These celebrities have more than enough money to zoom around to wherever they need to be on private jets—and we are green with envy. So, let’s look at some aspirational pictures of celebs with their jets.

Jackie Chan

Nunchakus aren’t the only things that this kung-fu star loves. Jackie Chan is also into Embraer planes. So, naturally, the Rush Hour star bought two of them. Yes, two. The actor purchased both a Legacy 650 and a Legacy 500.

In total, that’s a receipt of over $50 million. But don’t worry, the guy knows how to put both aircraft to good use! The Legacy 650 is for long trips across the globe, while the Legacy 500 is for those in-country flights. It’s always good to have options.

Dwayne Johnson

Dwayne Johnson, also known as The Rock, is a busy man. That is why his $65 million Gulfstream G650 jet is one of the fastest in the world. No time to waste when you’re one of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood.

The Rock shows off how valuable a private jet is: You can work on some documents and take pictures of your fantastic outfit while on a trip to the Big Apple. In addition, we are sure he appreciates the extra legroom.

Harrison Ford

It has been a long time since the first Star Wars and Indiana Jones films, but Harrison Ford still has that youthful vigor when engaging in exhilarating activities. What activities, you ask? Well, just flying massive machines. No big deal.

He doesn’t only fly his two private planes, though—Han Solo also owns a helicopter! And yes, he flies all of them on his own. He says he prefers flying them because the experience is far more exciting. We can only imagine!

Rita Ora

British artist Rita Ora has been known to make some daring fashion statements, to say the least. It’s undeniable that she’s confident with what she wears, and in this snap, she’s seen sporting some cool digs while on her private jet.

The “Body On Me” singer looks right at home perched on the jet’s wing. If this picture doesn’t make you scream in luxurious envy, then we don’t know what will. Ora’s love for style definitely extends to her transportation choices.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

When it comes to class, Transformers 3 star and fashion model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is never found lacking. Whether she’s on the screen, on the runway, or even with her family on a private jet, there’s something about her that just screams “expensive.”

Photo credits: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (@rosiehw)/Instagram

For most people, family vacations involve kids fighting over who gets to sit in the front seat as the family embarks on a long road trip. Not for Rosie and her family. The ever-chic actress can be seen here holding her baby as she heads off on a luxurious holiday.

Devon Windsor

Not many people can say that they spend their time relaxing from work on a private jet, but fashion model Devon Windsor certainly can. Wearing some pretty comfy clothes, the model takes to the sky and takes a break from everything going on down here.

Photo credits: Devon Windsor (@devwindsor)/Instagram

Devon strikes a pose for her Instagram fans before going on a trip to a beautiful beach with pristine white sand and azure water. Sounds absolutely idyllic. We hope she has a relaxing holiday. It’s exhausting being so stunning and rich!

Chris Hemsworth

We all know him: Chris Hemsworth, widely known for playing Thor, the “God of Thunder.” But even gods get lonely. So, why not gather some of your friends and family members to get on your private jet and fly off like absolute bosses?

Photo credits: Chris Hemsworth (@chrishemsworth)/Instagram

Whether he is jetting off to a Vegas weekend with the boys or he’s taking his wife and baby on a family vacation, this Aussie makes sure to fly in luxury. We just wonder if his trusty hammer makes it through customs.

Lionel and Sofia Richie

Lionel Richie is an American national treasure. One of the best-selling musical artists of all time is bound to have the means to afford the pinnacle of luxury, and we think that if anyone deserves it, it is this man.

Photo credits: Sofia Richie (@sofiarichie)/Instagram

However, Lionel Richie wears many hats. The one he is probably most proud of is the one of “dad.” His kids certainly enjoy the fruits of his labor. This picture is of their family trip to New York, where his fashionista daughter, Sofia, was attending Fashion Week.

Eva Longoria

Having your flight interrupted by layovers and breaks isn’t exactly peachy. Ever wonder what the answer to that is? Well, Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria’s solution is to get a private jet and fly to her destination by herself instead.

Photo credits: Eva Longoria Baston (@evalongoria)/Instagram

By having her jet, the actress skips all the normie problems like layovers and focuses on going straight to the goal. It also helps that she is able to go to more obscure destinations. It’s all about the destination for Eva Longoria.

Victoria Beckham

Victoria Beckham, also known as Posh Spice, isn’t just a singer, fashion designer, and TV personality; she also knows how to throw fabulous parties. Posh likes to spice up her travels with luxury slumber parties⁠—the best kind of slumber party.

Photo credits: Victoria Beckham (@victoriabeckham)/Instagram

Posting this on her Instagram with the hashtag #PoshPartyForOne, the ex-Spice Girl poses with her team on their way to the launch of her new makeup line in Asia. We just want to know: how do we get an invite to the next slumber party?

Bella Hadid

Bella Hadid might seem like the regular girl next door, but she is definitely not the type of girl who flies as we do. Just as well⁠—she is the supermodel daughter of a world-renowned luxury property developer. Affluence is in her blood.

Photo credits: Bella Hadid (@bellahadid)/Instagram

So, it comes as no surprise that she has her own private jet on standby. In the fun-filled photo above, Bella went on a spontaneous trip with her friends to Jamaica, on her private jet, of course. Oh, to be young, beautiful, and wealthy!

Taylor Swift

The biggest star to come out of the early 2010s has to be Taylor Swift. She made the world fall in love with country music and is definitely reaping the benefits of those efforts. With so many awards to her name, she needs more than one jet. So, she got two.

Photo credits: Taylor Swift (@taylorswift)/Instagram

You heard that right: the popstar owns a Falcon 50 and a Falcon 900. You might think that is a bit excessive, but everyone needs a hobby. Some people collect coins and stamps. Taylor collects jets. Same thing, different tax brackets.

Elsa Pataky

The God of Thunder’s wife herself, Elsa Pataky, is no stranger to luxury. Having your husband be the King of Asgard while being an actress yourself is gonna net you some pretty nice perks. One such perk is your own private aircraft.

Photo credits: Elsa Pataky (@elsapataky)/Instagram

The photos above show that she isn’t alone on these trips, though. The actress loves flying with her beautiful family, which includes her husband, Chris Hemsworth, and their three children. Talk about family goals! Those children have definitely won the genetic pool lottery!


Sean Combs, also known as Diddy, is more than just a rapper. He is a media mogul. From luxury clothing to cars, superyachts, and even a private jet, this man has it all. And it doesn’t seem like he has any plans on stopping soon.

Photo credits: Sean Combs (@diddy)/Instagram

The Bad Boy Records owner had quite the festive season in 2016. He spent some time on his yacht before heading to Vegas on his private jet. That’s pretty insane, but with his money, you’d probably be doing it too.

Karlie Kloss

Famous fashion model Karlie Kloss gets tired after a long week of work, as we all do. So, it’s only natural that, after a busy week, she would want to take to the skies and fly to St. Bart’s for a little bit of R&R.

Photo credits: Karlie Kloss (@karliekloss)/Instagram

Karlie juggles a heavy workload. She is the founder of Kode with Klossy, a television host, and a mom. Considering all that, you could say that the model has some amazing energy. Well, you probably would, too, if working a week meant you could fly off to magical islands in the Caribbean.


Comparing anyone to Beyoncé is just unfair. She seems to have it all: a loving family and a successful career, and she is also incredibly beautiful. She also happens to have a jet that is far nicer than many people’s homes.

Photo credits: Beyoncé (@beyonce)/Instagram

On a sky-high trip, Beyoncé takes to her Instagram and posts pictures of herself looking ultra cool. You can bet that she and her rapper husband, Jay-Z, weren’t eating instant noodles for their in-flight dinner. Only the finest dining for those two!


Given that he’s one of the most successful rappers and producers to ever live, it’s natural to think that Jay-Z and his family would have the best of the best. Look at this picture of him and Beyonce coming off of their private jet like royalty.

Photo credits: Jay-Z (@jayzz_official)/Instagram

Beyonce might have won the prize for being the best wife in the world because she gifted her husband one of the best sets of wings a person could ask for: a Bombardier Challenger 850 Learjet, which the couple use on Father’s Day trips to who-knows-where.

Celine Dion

Superstar Celine Dion has reached legendary status. She has been performing her hit songs for over 35 years! Because of this, she’s also pretty busy. Therefore, the best way to travel around would be on her very own private jet.

Photo credits: Celine Dion (@celinedion)/Instagram

Celine can rest without getting swarmed by fans, and she can also rehearse at the same time. Win-win! The Canadian singer’s jet is a step above the rest, though. It is literally a home in the sky with multiple bathrooms and even a kitchen. Now that is what we call luxury.

Mariah Carey

Adding to the long list of people you will never catch flying coach is Mariah Carey. After numerous platinum hits and tours across the entire world, this pop diva has developed a taste for the finer things in life⁠—like private jets.

Photo credits: Mariah Carey (@mariahcarey)/Instagram

So, if you ever board a plane with the hopes of catching a glimpse of this pop legend, then you should reevaluate your expectations. Mariah Carey is in a whole other league from us regular folk⁠—and she isn’t afraid to flaunt it.

Tom Cruise

Top Gun star Tom Cruise doesn’t just fly Air Force planes; he also has a private jet for his own leisure. If the pilot needs a potty break, the actor can take over since he is actually a professionally trained pilot.

Photo credits: Just Jared

In this snap of him, the critically-acclaimed actor is seen getting off of his customized Gulfstream IV with his signature sunglasses on. This guy does his own stunts, can fly fighter jets, and owns his own aircraft⁠—he is the epitome of cool.

Cristiano Ronaldo

We can all agree that among the best players in football, Cristiano Ronaldo ranks near the top of the list. Ronaldo may spend a lot of his life being disciplined with his training regime and diet, but he knows how to party too.

Photo credits: Cristiano Ronaldo (@cristiano)/Instagram

The football star’s been known to hold extravagant parties on his yachts out on the sea. After winning the Champions League in 2016, he also decided to hold a party aboard his private jet. Your little league soccer team’s victory party ain’t got nothing on this!

Lewis Hamilton

If there’s anyone who knows about fast machines, it’s Lewis Hamilton. The famous racecar driver doesn’t just have a private jet; he has one with red mood lighting. Not only does the racer fly luxuriously, but he also has excellent taste.

Photo credits: Lewis Hamilton (@lewishamilton)/Instagram

The British driver lounges in the plush leather seats as if this is no special occasion⁠—as if this was just a regular ole Tuesday. When you are worth almost $300 million, flying in a private jet probably becomes quite mundane.

John Travolta

What you may not know about the Pulp Fiction star is that, aside from going guns blazing in movies and groovily dancing in the club, he loves to fly. Surprisingly, he doesn’t just love to fly as a passenger. Sometimes, he is the pilot.

Photo credits: John Travolta (@johntravolta)/Instagram

John Travolta loves to fly his own private aircraft. The Grease star has a Boeing that is priced at just over $55 million. Usually, the Boeing seats 150 people. Travolta customized the plane to fit only 15 people. The man loves to have some extra legroom.

Gigi Hadid

Bella Hadid isn’t the only Hadid sibling who’s able to live life on a private jet. Let’s not forget that her sister, Gigi, is also a world-famous model, and as we all know, being that famous comes with some perks.

Photo credits: Gigi Hadid (@gigihadid)/Instagram

On her 21st birthday celebration, the model took to the skies to travel to her party in Las Vegas. What a way to celebrate a birthday! Despite the gloomy weather, Gigi still manages to look absolutely radiant in this picture.

Justin Bieber

Love him or hate him, Justin Beiber deserves all of his accolades. The singer has been working since he was just 13 years old! When he isn’t high up on the Billboard Charts, he is flying high in the sky aboard his private jet.

Photo credits: Justin Bieber (@justinbieber)/Instagram

In this 2020 snap of him on his jet, Justin is seen playing a bit of hockey while his gorgeous wife, Hailey, relaxes. His jet even has a TV to watch your favorite shows on! We might just challenge Justin to a game of plane hockey!

Kim Kardashian

Now, we are all aware of how immensely successful and famous the Kardashians are, but we can all agree that Kim might be the most famous of the bunch. After all, she has been credited with jump-starting her siblings’ careers.

Photo credits: Kim Kardashian (@kimkardashian)/Instagram

Kim described this trip to the French Riveria as feeling a bit “cramped.” We totally know how you feel, Kim. Our fancy private jet can feel a bit stuffy too. Perhaps it is time for her to size up, though we aren’t sure that a bigger, fancier jet exists.

Ellie Goulding

British singer Ellie Goulding doesn’t just have a beautiful singing voice; she also has one of the most adorable doggies in the entire world! Her friendly pup is the first to welcome guests onto the plane. Isn’t she the most adorable flight attendant?

Photo credits: Ellie Goulding (@elliegoulding)/Instagram

On her way to vacation on a luxury yacht, Ellie posted this pic of her bulldog right on the top of her private jet’s steps. There is another benefit to flying on your own aircraft: your cute pets are always welcome!

Kylie Jenner

During her 19th birthday, model and cosmetics business owner Kylie Jenner invited a ton of other celebrities to her superyacht. How did she get home, you ask? Well, on her own private jet, of course! How else would a superfamous celebrity get back to their mansion?

Photo credits: Kylie Jenner (@kyliejenner)/Instagram

Kylie’s jet is aptly named “Kylie Air” and is fitted with personalized touches in the mogul’s favorite color: pink. Even the air hostesses don pink uniforms when serving Kylie and her family. Our lives looked a little different when we were her age.

Kendall Jenner

Here is another world-class model and Kardashian/Jenner to add to our list. Kendall Jenner loves to bring a close friend of hers along whenever she’s flying on her private jet. It’s just not the kind of close friend that you’d expect! Or is it?

Photo credits: Kendall Jenner (@kendalljenner)/Instagram

The photo above shows her and her black-and-brown Doberman looking effortlessly chic, with Kendall’s private jet right behind her. This is one of those times when we wish we had been born a dog. This dog is living the life!

Paris Hilton

She may have been a topic of some controversy over the years, but Paris Hilton will never stop living her life in style! As a Hilton, flying in a jet must be nothing unusual. She has probably never had to fly in a commercial plane.

Photo credits: Paris Hilton (@parishilton)/Instagram

The entrepreneur and hotel heiress doesn’t just sit idly around when she’s on her flight. After all, planes make for good selfie opportunities! While on the way to the Cannes Film Festival, Paris took a quick pic in the cockpit⁠—as one does.

Oprah Winfrey

You get a jet, and you get a jet. Everybody gets a jet! If that line is familiar to you, then you know exactly who is next on our list. It’s none other than the TV superstar host herself, Oprah Winfrey. Oprah’s jet is one of the biggest private aircraft in the world.

Photo credits: Private Jet Clubs

A jet like that doesn’t come cheap—Oprah’s particular model will run you a cool $42 million. To be honest, though, it’s Oprah we’re talking about here. Is it a surprise that one of the biggest symbols of women’s empowerment owns a massive jet?

Valentino Garavani

Italian fashion mogul Valentino Garavani is one of those people whose image just screams the word “luxury.” If it was not already apparent by the clothes that he makes, then you can surely see it by how he presents himself.

Photo credits: Valentino Garavani (@realmrvalentino)/Instagram

Giancarlo Giammetti, Garavani’s partner, took this photo of Valentino chilling in his private jet and catching up on his reading. From the tailored blazer to the cashmere scarf, this man is the definition of class. We can only dream of looking so chic while on an hours-long flight!

Chris Pratt

Chris Pratt is one of those actors who went from just another comedic character in a typical American sitcom to one of the breakout superstars of the last decade. So, it comes as no surprise that he’s gonna be flying in style like the big boys.

Photo credits: Chris Pratt (@prattprattpratt)/Instagram

This snazzy photo of him mid-flight is undoubtedly one for the books. Who knows where he’s off to? A party, a press release, maybe both? All we know is that this man is absolutely awesome, and so is his private jet.

Ye West

Semi-reclusive rapper Kanye West, who now goes as just Ye, is an enigma, to say the least. Despite his controversies, the guy certainly knows how to live an extravagant life. Ye has a Boeing 747 that is outfitted with a lounge, marble bathrooms, and guest rooms.

Photo credits: Ye (@kanyewest)/Instagram

This plane can seat up to 660 people, but Ye likes to use this beast as a “floating office.” Although there are rumors that Adidas gifted this plane to him because of their “Yeezy” partnership, there is no doubt that he could afford it himself.


How many people can say that they bought an extremely expensive jet just so they can brand it with their name and logo? Sounds ludicrous, right? Well, the Champagne Papi himself, Drake, has been there, done that. The Canadian rapper’s jet is worth over $200 million!

Photo credits: Drake (@champagnepapi)/Instagram

Funny enough, Drake’s entire net worth is just over $200 million. It seems strange that he bought something that costs almost as much as his net worth. But who are we to judge? Live and let live, as they say!

Cardi B

She’s a famous rapper, she’s beautiful, and she also has one of the snazziest private planes out there. In summary, Cardi B has got it all. We weren’t joking when we said the jet was snazzy. The sleek black exterior is stunning, but the interior is even better.

Photo credits: Cardi B (@iamcardib)/Instagram

The jet is outfitted with a large TV, a full bed, custom leather upholstery for the seats, and a high-quality sound system since she’s in the music business. Cardi is also quite the foodie, so she makes sure that the food on the flight is up to her standards.

Nicholas Cage

When you’re out stealing the official draft of the Declaration of Independence, you’re gonna need to have a consistent way to smuggle it out with you. So, of course, you’ll need a private jet to keep it safe from the clutches of those who would seek to take it from your grasp.

Photo credits: Lionsgate Movies/YouTube

Film references aside, Nicholas Cage actually has a private jet—a Gulfstream G550, to be exact. The above photo shows the actor coming off the plane looking as stylish as ever with his fedora and leather duffel bag. Now that is how you do it.

Elon Musk

Tesla founder Elon Musk is known for a lot of his projects. From sedans to very “different” pickup trucks to everybody’s favorite space rockets, the guy is able to do it all. That includes being able to buy numerous private jets.

Photo credits: YouTube

Every year, he flies around 150,000 miles on the G550 he bought in 2008. If you’re handling manufacturing chains and businesses all over the world, then you’d best believe that you’d be using a private jet to go everywhere.

George Clooney

Even though George Clooney is an advocate and promoter of environmental movements like carbon footprint reduction, the 1997 Batman star uses his expensive private aircraft on a regular basis. A man’s got to have some way to enjoy himself, right?

Photo credits: Kevin Mazur

Clooney knows the importance of having a copilot, which is why he regularly invites people to fly with him. In the above case, it was Rande Gerber. If you think that’s impressive, wait until you hear about some of his other guests.

Victoria’s Secret models

Victoria’s Secret models Chanel Iman and Shanina Shaik are two of the world’s biggest models. In their line of work, it’s only natural for your coworkers to also be your friends. So, going on a little vacay with them is lots of fun.

Photo credits: Chanel Iman (@chaneliman) and Shanina Shaik (@shaninamshaik)/Instagram

Along with their fellow models, Daniela Lopez Osorio and Nadine Leopold, the girls flew off to the Bahamas for a pleasant getaway. Before they boarded their private jet, they stopped for a quick pic for the ‘gram. When it’s your job to take pictures, your Instagram snaps will always look this good.


This legendary rapper and Fast and Furious star is the embodiment of “cool,” and that is why he chose to get himself a Hawker 700 that costs a whopping $20 million. Now that is just ludicrous! Apologies for the pun.

Photo credits: Ludacris (@ludacris)/Instagram

Did we mention that the rapper is a licensed pilot? Yeah, he doesn’t just race in fast cars with Vin Diesel; he also knows how to fly. And here we are, struggling with acing our driver’s license exams at the DMV.

Kylie Minogue

Being a worldwide icon is a difficult job, especially if you’re faced with a world tour and a hectic schedule. Because of that, you’re gonna need a set of wheels that can stick with you for the entire trip—or, even better, a set of wings.

Photo credits: Kylie Minogue (@kylieminogue)/Instagram

This photo is from Kylie Minogue’s trip back to the UK in March of 2017. It may have been tiring for her, but she definitely didn’t show it! Just imagine how tiring a tour of that caliber would be if she didn’t have a private jet!

Angelina Jolie

Most mothers would probably get their kids a new video game console, or maybe a mom would buy her child tickets to a Coldplay concert. Angeline Jolie is not like other mothers. When her son took an interest in planes as a toddler back in 2004, she took up flying as a hobby.

Photo credits: Just Jared

She even went as far as to get a pilot’s license because why the heck not? Her aforementioned son, Maddox, who is now an adult, can enjoy flying lessons with his mother on their own aircraft. Now that is one super mom!
