Flying with the Rich and Famous
The rich and the famous have always had some advantage when it comes to their lifestyles. Unlike regular folk, they are able to spend on premium services. If there’s one luxury they don’t have, however, it’s privacy. This is why they are willing to pay high costs just to get it. Some people go for business class when flying commercially, while the A-listers make investments toward getting their own plane instead. Whether they’re travelling for work or for pleasure, our favourite idols will always travel in style.
With that in mind, you can just imagine how lavish their vacations must be. You will hardly find these celebs in the usual tourist spots people visit! Instead, they take peace and relaxation a degree higher and opt for the most exclusive holidays their money can afford. Suffice to say, owning private jets and yachts really helps.
So, if you’ve ever wondered what your favourites might be up to during their holidays, let us clue you in. You might be surprised at how much personal island retreat!
Jeff Bezos | Jet
Founder of the popular online shopping site Amazon, Jeff Bezos, is the richest man in the world right now. As such, it’s not too surprising that he owns his own private jet, which he likely uses for both business meetings and private getaways. He has a Gulfstream G650ER that he acquired for $65 million worth of investment money. He customized the plane to his own preferences, though so the overall cost was probably around $70 million.
His plane has a twin engine and can fly up to 7,500 nautical miles in a single trip. On top of that, it can also accommodate up to eight passengers comfortably. A busy man like Bezos certainly needs an efficient way to travel and a jet is the best solution for that. He is not only a rich man and a jet owner; he is also a philanthropist. He will always be remembered as the CEO to the number one company/site in the world – Amazon.
