Latest news and information on travel, trends, aircraft and air chartering



It is no secret that celebrities often travel with a private plane. Certainly, it is a matter of Status: if you’re a celebrity and a millionaire, you can’t travel in economy class …

But it is also a necessity.
Fame involves the loss of privacy and anonymity. Imagine finding yourself alongside a film star or a jet-set star at the gate: what would your reaction be? Would you be able to hold yourself from looking insistently at that person? Wouldn’t you be tempted to approach and ask for a selfie or for an autograph?

Here you go!
Multiply this behaviour by the total number of passengers at the gate …
If constantly repeated, this situation can become a nightmare!

Now, let’s take into consideration the world of sport and, in particular that of football, in which athletes are always called for high and top performances: nothing strange in that, these VIP millionaires buy themselves a private jet and luxury planes.
