The Most Expensive Private Jets in the World

It still blows my mind to think we’ve created machinery and technology that’s capable of transporting us around the world!

That’s incredible enough on its own, however, if you’re really looking to do it in style then owning a private jet is the way to go.

Here’s a list of the 20 most expensive private jets in the world.
 

The 20 Most Expensive Private Jets In the World

The list of private jets and figures mentioned below have been compiled from various sources around the web, such as Jetset Magazine & Insider.com.

These are the 20 most expensive private jets in the world:
 

20. The Embraer EMB 190 BJ – $41 Million

The Embraer EMB 190 BJ was first introduced to the world in 2006 but didn’t take flight until 2007.

It comes with a very hefty price tag, however, it can be easily justified by all the luxurious fixtures and fittings included.

The private jet is fitted with extra fuel tanks which means it can fly a lot further without having to refuel.

Also, as you would expect, it has separate bedrooms, bathrooms and a walk in cargo area if you want to stretch your legs mid-flight.

 

19. Gulfstream G500 – $44 Million

Next up we have this very impressive Gulfstream G500.

Now, although $44 million is a lot of money, it’s not in comparison to some of Gulfstream’s other offerings that are featured later on.

The G500 is fitted with beautiful bespoke cabins, which include customised tailored seats to match customer requirements.

Also, if you need to browse the web or take conference calls on board, then the jet comes fully equipped with super fast internet, roughly 30 times faster than any of its competitors.

 

18. Bombardier BD 700 Global Express – $47 Million

The first Bombardier on our list is one of the most expensive private jets in the world.

3. Airbus A380 Custom – $500 Million

The Airbus A380 Custom belongs to Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal and costs half a billion dollars!

2. Boeing 747 refit – $617 Million
