Owning your private jet is the epitome of celebrity status. No longer do they have to take selfies with fans passing through First Class or have unflattering pictures of them taken by the paparazzi.
One of the best perks though is flying in luxury. Celebrities like Oprah Winfrey and Jackie Chan have done significant revamp on their planes, adding bespoke amenities fit for A-list celebrities.
Winfrey, who owns a Bombardier Global Express XRS, once told Edward Enninful of British Vogue that having her airplane was the greatest luxury. “It means one minute you’re in New York, and then the next minute you say, ‘You know Edward, I think I’ll fly to London.’”
Her jet is kitted out with an all-leather interior, aesthetically placed lighting and designer fixtures.
Jay Z received a $40-million Bombardier Challenger 850 jet from his wife, Beyonce.
