Spotted: 30 celebrities on private jets
When you're the world's biggest pop star flying commercial just won't do. Beyonce shared this snap - one of a series taken on board a private jet - as she flew to Italy with her husband Jay-Z and three children during their On The Run II tour in July 2018. Of course, being prime Med season the family also made use of their time on the Italian Riviera to relax on board 95.2 metre Lurssen superyacht Kismet, which is available to charter with Moran Yacht & Ship from €1.2 million per week.
If you're flying around the globe to play at some of the summer's top festivals then a private jet becomes more of a necessity than a luxury. British pop star Rita Ora demonstrated this with a series of social media posts in July 2018, the first of which showed her jetting off to Sweden to play at the Stadfesten festival. A second post the same day, also from a private jet, was mysteriously captioned 'going somewhere' before being followed up with another post showing the singer was taking some time out to enjoy a luxury yacht vacation in the South of France.
How better to beat the January blues than by jetting off to sunny climes once the festive season has come to an end? This is exactly what American model Devon Windsor did, posting this snap of herself posing in front of a sizeable private jet with the caption, "Off to somewhere warmer!" at the end of December 2017. Although Windsor didn't confirm her destination, the post was followed up by a number of images showing beautiful white sandy beaches and turquoise waters hinting at somewhere in the Caribbean or Bahamas.
British model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley shared this sweet snap to wish her social media followers a happy holiday as she boarded a private jet in December 2017. The star was pictured holding her six-month-old son Jack as the pair took a pre-Christmas family vacation to Navaho Nation in Utah. Of course, this is hardly the model's first private flight. Huntington-Whiteley jetted off for some late summer sun before the start of London Fashion Week in September 2016 and shared a chic pre-take off snap from an airfield near her home in LA.
Lionel and Sofia Richie
Legendary musician Lionel Richie and his model daughter Sofia shared a series of snaps from a private jet jaunt to New York in September 2017. The pair were joined by other members of the Richie family who visited the American city from their home in LA to support Sofia as she walked in Jeremy Scott's New York Fashion Week runway show.
As one of Hollywood's most sought-after actors Chris Hemsworth doesn't have time to spend hanging around in airports which is why his social media feeds are full of snaps taken in and around private aircraft. In August 2017, for example, Hemsworth shared images showing him taking both a helicopter and private jet during a vacation on Orpheus Island in Australia with wife Elsa Pataky and, a few weeks later, with a group of friends on board a luxury jet bound for Las Vegas to watch the much-hyped McGregor-Mayweather boxing match.
One reason many people choose to fly by private jet is that it offers unparalleled comfort and privacy to work while travelling. Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson demonstrated this perfectly when he shared these snaps of himself doing 'homework' for his upcoming movie Skyscraper while on a quick jaunt to Vancouver in Canada where the film is shooting.
Lewis Hamilton's race car-red Bombardier Challenger 605 is one of the F1 driver's trademarks and often appears on his social media feeds. Hamilton posted this snap, in which he is joined by model Winnie Harlow along with family and friends, as he whisked the group away for a quick break on board a yacht in Mykonos before competing in the British Grand Prix in July 2017.
When you travel the world with a sizeable entourage having the flexibility flying private offers is an undeniably huge asset. It can also be a whole lot of fun as fashion designer Victoria Beckham showed when she shared this image as she and her team touched down in Singapore in their private jet in May 2017 during a trip to launch Beckham's new make-up range in Asia.
Need to get somewhere a little obscure? The flexibility and larger range of destinations afforded by private aviation makes it the ideal way to travel. American actress Eva Longoria discovered this on a recent trip around Spain in which she retraced her family history, flying by private jet to lesser known location such as Asturias and Covadonga, in spring 2017.
