Owning a private jet is considered the ultimate luxury, yet it requires substantial financial resources. Fortunately for these five property owners, money isn’t an issue.
Roman Abramovich’s Boeing 767-33A ER – 170 million USD
The fifth person on the list is Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, whose Boeing 767-33A ER costs $170 million.
This jet, which has a dining room for 30 people and is decorated in chestnut with gold accents, could comfortably transport the entire Chelsea football squad. The modified plane is even equipped with a missile defence system.
The Boeing 767-33A ER has a top speed of 850 km/h and a maximum range of 11,090 kilometres, making it possible to fly nonstop from London to Singapore.
The Sultan of Brunei’s Boeing 747-430 – 323 million USD
The Sultan of Brunei, one of the world’s wealthiest individuals, is unsurprisingly included on the list.
His special Boeing 747-300 cost 323 million dollars, with a rumoured 100 million dollars in luxury amenities to match the sovereign’s standards, such as solid gold washbasins. The interior of the jets is a veritable flying castle, with Lalique crystal and gold.
The plane has a cruising speed of 1000 kilometres per hour and a range of 14,000 kilometres, making it perfect for state excursions to Europe and the Americas. The Sultan uses his fleet of planes, which includes an Airbus 340 and six tiny jets, on a regular basis.
367 million dollars for Joseph Lau’s Boeing 747-8 VIP
Joseph Lau, a Hong Kong real estate billionaire, is the owner of this 367 million dollar behemoth. The interior of the Boeing 747-8 is 445 square metres, with two levels connected by a spiral staircase.
The 747-8 VIP was originally priced at 153 million dollars, but Lau added 214 million dollars in improvements, including multiple guest suites, a bar, a gym, and an office big enough for board meetings.
The jumbo aircraft has a maximum range of 17,020 kilometres, which is the equivalent of flying from London to Sydney and the longest range of any private jet on this list.
Alisher Usmanov’s Airbus A340-300 – 400 million USD
One of Russia’s wealthiest men, oligarch Alisher Usmanov, owns the $400 million Airbus A340-300, the country’s largest private jet, which is larger than President Vladimir Putin’s personal plane.
The plane cost 230 million dollars, with Usmanov spending an additional 170 million dollars on a sumptuous interior that included an elegant dining room, luxuriant leather chairs, multiple seating places, restrooms, and sleeping quarters.
The A340-300 has a top speed of 915 km/h and a range of 13,699 kilometres, which is roughly the distance between Moscow and Tokyo.
Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal’s Airbus A380 – 502 million USD
Prince Alwaleed bin Talal of Saudi Arabia possesses the world’s most costly private aeroplane, an Airbus A380 worth more than 500 million dollars. The 550-square-meter aircraft has been tastefully decorated to include a concert hall, Turkish bath, storage space, and even a stable for horses and camels. Not to mention the Prince’s magnificent throne and a rotating prayer room that can face Mecca from any angle.
The A380 has a top speed of 1,050 km/h and a range of 15,700 kilometres, making it possible to travel nonstop from Riyadh to New York.
