Get the red-carpet treatment and travel in in luxury just like your favorite celebrities. But before you book your next private jet, let’s take a look at how the Hollywood A-List and other celebrities do it.
Most Expensive Private Jets Owned By Celebrities
You might know Bill Gates from his work as the co-founder of Microsoft, his previous status as the richest person in the world (until Jeff Bezos passed him in 2018), or his philanthropic work. Gates enjoys flying by private jet: he owns a Bombardier BD-700 Global Express, a larger jet that seats up to 17 guests. With a range of over 5,000 miles, this plane does not need to stop to refuel on any trip.
Oprah Winfrey needs no introduction. It’s no surprise Oprah prefers to fly private: In the 1990s, Oprah Winfrey experienced airport harassment from disgruntled fans of her show. She decided to purchase a private jet—and (reportedly) never looked back. Oprah is believed to own a Bombardier Global Express XRS, a variation on Bill Gates’ plane. Some say the interior is entirely leather.
Kim Kardashian-West and Kanye West
Kim Kardashian-West and Kanye West are best-known for their opulent lifestyle, Kim’s reality TV show, and Kanye’s music. Together, they own a jet that dwarfs all other private jets: a double-decker Boeing 747. The plane was originally created for commercial flights, and seats up to 600 people. Kim says (on her YouTube channel) the jet was a gift to Kanye from Adidas.
Celine Dion is renowned worldwide for her incredible music. Among other accolades, she’s won five Grammys, twenty Junos, and seven Billboard awards. She’s also known for owning mansions across the world, from Paris to Montreal to Las Vegas. Her chosen transportation between these luxurious abodes is a Bombardier BD-700 Global Express—yes, the same jet as Bill Gates, in the same line as Oprah Winfrey’s model.

You’ve probably seen Angelina Jolie in one of her award-winning films: Maleficent, Salt, The Tourist, or Mr. & Mrs. Smith, among others. She’s also known as a philanthropist through her work with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. She obtained her pilot’s license in 2004 to impress her son Maddox, who loves planes. Her aircraft of choice is the Cirrus SR22-G2. The most stunning feature of the Cirrus is its built-in safety measures: the aircraft can automatically coordinate an emergency landing if necessary.
Harrison Ford is easily recognizable as the beloved film characters Indiana Jones, Han Solo, and Jack Ryan. Like Angelina Jolie, Ford has his pilot’s license. In his spare time, he works with local authorities to help rescue stranded hikers in Wyoming using his personal aircraft. Ford’s private jet is a Cessna Citation Sovereign, which comfortably fits eight passengers. It offers double-club seating and spacious room for baggage, as well.
The voice of Morgan Freeman is perhaps one of the best-recognized voices in film. He’s received recognition for his roles in Invictus, The Shawshank Redemption, Million Dollar Baby, and more. He played the voice of God in Bruce Almighty, narrated The March of the Penguins, and even voiced a wise wizard in The Lego Movie.
This legend enjoys riding in his Emivest SJ30 and Cessna Citation 501. The SJ30 is known as the fastest lightweight jet and is extremely fuel-efficient. It seats up to six passengers. Freeman also has his pilot’s license and sometimes flies his own aircraft.
Taylor Swift’s music first gained popularity in the late 2000s. As her music gained momentum, she decided to purchase two private jets—both around the time she won Billboard Music’s Woman of the Year award and the American Music Awards Artist of the Year. Though she recently sold one of her jets, she still owns a Dassault-Breguet Mystere Falcon 900. The Falcon 900 is highly fuel-efficient, safe even on shorter runways, and easy to store. The spacious cabin includes separate areas for work and leisure. It’s safe to say Taylor Swift enjoys a comfortable ride anytime she steps onto this aircraft.
Mark Cuban is well known for his role on Shark Tank, but he’s also an investor, an inventor, and an entrepreneur. Some of his fortune is spent on maintaining and operating his private jets—a Gulfstream V, a Boeing 757, and a Boeing 767. His purchase of the Gulfstream V in 1999 broke world records for the largest internet purchase at that time. The Gulfstream V carries up to 14 passengers. It features beautiful wood detailing in its cabin. The Boeing 757 is quite a bit larger, with room for up to 200 passengers.
Beyonce and Jay-Z
This power couple is known for their music, both individually and together (in their duo “The Carters”). To date, Beyonce holds the record for the most Grammy nominations of any woman in history. She’s also been named the Top Certified Artist of the Decade and Top Female Artist of the Decade. Beyonce’s husband, Jay-Z, is listed as one of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time and holds more Grammys than any other rapper.
Beyonce gave Jay-Z a Bombardier Challenger 850 Learjet as a Father’s Day gift. It holds up to 16 people and has a range of over 3,000 miles. It’s best-known for its spacious interior cabin with luxurious seating arrangements for both work and relaxation.
