Top DJs Who Own Luxurious Private Jets




Many people mistakenly see private jets as the ultimate symbol of wealth. However, being able to fly privately is a necessity for artists who travel on a daily basis.

Imagine how inefficient a top DJ’s travel would be if he or she had to use commercial airlines to travel between cities while on the tour.

First of all, they would have to arrive to airports 2+ hours before their scheduled flight times to check in, get their boarding passes, go through the TSA check point. With the limited amount of carry-on and checked baggade allowed on board they wouldn’t be able to transport all their equipment and paraphernalia. So, they would have to look for other ways to deliver freights to their destinations which is not ideal either because baggage gets lost, deliveries get delayed or sent to the wrong destinations.

Additionally, flights get delayed and cancelled which is likely to cause tour dates cancellations.

Quite often a DJ can have shows in two different cities on the same night. For example, Tiesto may play a set in the San Francisco Bay Area earlier in the evening and then fly to Vegas for his regular set at Hakkasan a few hours later. Keeping such an intense and tight schedule is only possible if Tiesto uses private jet flights. Therefore private jets for the top DJ is the essential business tool that allows them travel efficiently which also includes resting and/or creating music during the flight.

You may be able to guess a few of the DJs who can obviously afford to fly privately. Some of these planes have unique designs that are giving away its owners name. We complied a list of DJs with photos of their planes. Check it out below and let us know which plane (in your opinion) has the best design.
