Up to the present, the owner of the most expensive private jet still remains unknown.
The roads of big cities and not-so-big city are constantly jammed with augmenting flows of vehicles. Though a medley of solutions for the traffic congestions are introduced every day, the crisis of traffic jams on the streets has never died.
However, there’s one proposal that seems the most fruitful at the moment but sadly, it is roughly only for the affluent. It is a shift from ground to aviation.
And when I mean that’s for the affluent, what I’m actually referring to is the extremely rich which can really get a hold of a some-hundred-million-dollar private jet. Today let’s check out how much it takes those affluent to escape the land traffic.

To name some, they are a satellite TV, multiple Blu-ray players, and a 42-inch HD TV ready for comfy experience on board. What’s more, the electronically controlled window shades, theater lighting, a compact kitchen, a full bathroom will make sure this is Tyler Perry’s second home.

The Chelsea owner loves vehicles. Alongside his exotic car fleet, a private jet is a must for a successful tycoon like him.
The Boeing 767-33A gets a nickname for itself as “The Bandit”. Its costly feel doesn’t come much from the outside but mostly in its interior with gold details and chestnut.

3. Airbus A340-300- $250-500m (N97b-N194b) - owned by Alisher Usmanov
The #28 ranking in the Forbes’ List of World’s Billionaires gained recognition after taking a Facebook share of $1.4b. Not many know he is also a proud owner of the Airbus A340 which cost him around $250m to have. That’s just not the end of the story. The biggest private jet in his home country Russia could be customized, which would ask for up to $500m. And for sure this billionaire wouldn’t miss a chance to bring his steel bird to the highest feel of luxury.

2. Airbus A380-Custom - $500m (~N194m) - owned by Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal
Aside from the Boeing 747-400, Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal also acquires the Airbus A380-Custom which is widely known as the largest passenger jet in the world which can give sufficient room for 853 passengers. But of course, he didn’t buy it for business. Then, I start to doubt how he could make good use of the spacious atmosphere inside with a dining room providing seats for 14 people, a lounge area, a concert hall, two bedrooms, and a magic carpet room.
