Kim Kardashian’s private jet is as luxe as you’d expect.
But passengers aboard ‘Kim Air’ must abide by the SKIMS founder’s one rule to keep it that way.
Her Gulfstream G65OER – a model that Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos also own – was initially priced at US$95 million.
She apparently bought it in February 2022.
The G650ER is the extended-range version of Gulfstream’s G650, which swooped into the private jet market in 2008.
Kim’s ER model, which is 500 nautical miles ahead of its predecessor at a range of 7,500 nautical miles (8,630 miles / 13,890 km), was introduced in 2014.
The jet is powered by twin Rolls-Royce BR725 A1-12 engines.
It can fly at a maximum speed of 616 knots or 709 mph (1,141 km/h), with a cruising speed of 516 knots or 594 mph (955 km/h).
It was officially introduced to fans in June 2023 on HBO’s The Kardashians via an MTV Cribs-style walk through.
And, of course, the famous sister didn’t just buy off the shelf.
The reality star worked with two designers to get ‘Kim Air’ exactly to her lavish tastes.
Tommy Clements of Clements Designs is an LA-based designer known for his “easy glamour and grand intimacy” within his interiors.
Waldo Fernandez’s Waldo’s Designs is known for working with the LA elite including Brad Pitt, Will Smith and legend, Elizabeth Taylor.
During her walk through she explained that, while it’s custom for planes to be dark with light leather, she opted for sleek, light wood.
She also had a bathroom front and back so that her passengers have options when nature calls.
And, of course, she ensured each seat had its own phone charger so that they’d always be able to scroll their their Instagram feeds en route.
“I never dreamed I would own a plane. It’s just, I wanted it to feel like an extension of me and an extension of my home,” she said.
With home comforts in mind she said the “best, most exciting part” of her new ride were the cashmere accents.
Pillows, headrests, ceilings, seats and overhead baggage compartments are all covered in rare and expensive cashmere.
But even a billionaire doesn’t want spills and smudges on their pristine soft furnishings.
Kim Kardashian’s private jet has one rule that she made clear on The Kardashians.
“Don’t breathe; don’t touch a thing,” she said, jokingly.
She has previously requested those aboard don’t wear shoes.
Supermodel sister, Kendall Jenner, considered getting a spray tan ahead of a trip to Milan for the Prada Fashion show but Kim shut her down.
“Have you seen the cashmere seats? You cannot get your spray tan on my cashmere seats,” she said.
The keen entrepreneur is even considering a collab with her SKIMS brand to match her jet.
The shapewear brand is known for nude shades, which reflect her mansion’s interiors.
“So, wouldn’t it be so cute if I made custom SKIMS in this color, like pajamas, socks, blankets, and slippers?” she said in the June episode.
Turns out she’s considering a travel collection for the successful brand.
Even the exterior is a neutral creme color.
It has 16 oval windows for dreamy views of the skies.
Plus enhanced air ionisation apparently makes a usually stale aircraft feel like breathing “outside fresh air”.
