17 Celebrities Who Are Obsessed with Private Planes
Being an A-lister comes with its share of pretty sweet perks. Among them, traveling by private jet is one of the ultimate status symbols. Whether it be industrialists, movie stars, or media tycoons, what separates these elite members are their quality of life. They can jet around the globe to their various mansions in comfort, whenever they want and in total privacy, avoiding the hassles of flying in cramped quarters with the common folk. For the rest of us, an occasional flight in business class or *gulp* even first class is an event worthy of celebration, a Snapchat and/or Instagram post.
These magnificent birds of panache not only provide state of the art technology, but also pack some of the most sought after amenities that would make the journey of the wealthy all the more cherishable. As we ourselves love a perfectly good airplane, we decided to scour the web for well-known celebrities who not only possess an affinity towards aviation but have realized their dreams of flying via luxury jet. (Why deal with cramped airplane seats and screaming babies when you don’t have to?) Here is our list of the celebs who only fly private—for when flying first class just won't do.

Gigi is constantly providing us with travel inspo, with her killer ensembles and bouncy tresses. Whether jetting off to Paris fashion week or vacationing with her pals in Dubai, Gigi doesn’t let anything cramp her style... including long-haul flights. When it comes to private jet fashion, Gigi’s got the whole casual-chic look down pat.
The elite star has showed off her decadent Hollywood mansion in Sopfia Coppola's The Bling Ring, but it seems that Paris wants the world to see more than just her palatial pad, as she posed in front of her private jet on Insta.
