Celebrities and private air travel
The world of celebrities and private air travel
When it comes to arriving in style the celebrities certainly know how to do it. Instead of owning a Lamborghini or hiring a private chauffeur, celebrities now need a new way to announce their entrance. What better way to do that then to own their own fleet of private jets?
Most celebrities, however, do not use their private jets as a way of showing off how much money they have. Rather it is a way to ensure that they get the privacy that they need. Flying commercially, even for “normal” people can be extremely invasive. Celebrities, on top of all the normal inconveniences, also have to deal with paparazzi and people asking for autographs. This makes it increasingly difficult for them to enjoy a peaceful flight and with their hectic schedules, the flight could be the only time they have had to sleep properly in weeks.
Owning a private jet can often be necessary for the celebrities to get that well needed down time.
One celebrity who has decided to take his passion for aviation to the next level is John Travolta. He not only owns a Boeing 707-138 but also has a pilot’s license. In fact, he even has a garage for the Boeing on his property. As an honorary pilot for Qantas, Travolta has flown over 35, 000 miles. This celebrity, doesn’t just use his jet for privacy but also to enjoy a passion that is close to his heart.
One of the first celebrities to enjoy taking to the skies in their own private jet was Elvis Presley. His Convair 880, was affectionately renamed Lisa Marie. This jet was definitely used for privacy and luxury, rather than just getting from point A to point B. The jet boasted a master bedroom and bathroom. Presley also wanted to make sure that he had the most up to date technology that was available during that time period and even had a conference room situated on the plane.
It is understandable that celebrities have chosen to purchase their own private jets. There are so many great advantages to flying privately. Aside for the added privacy they can schedule flights when they need to which is especially helpful with unpredictable work times. Choosing to fly privately is, however, not only limited to the celebrities. You can easily book a private jet to take you to your destination and enjoy the same treatment that a celebrity would. Privacy, comfort and flight times that suit you are easy to come by when you choose a private jet aviation company.
Arrive in style and comfort every time. If you are tired of becoming a little bit too friendly with the person sitting next to you then you need to fly privately. Imagine having a seat that is not only spacious, but not stuck in a row of three or four others? You can always have the window seat and not have to enter into uncomfortable conversations.
