Taylor Swift’s ‘Number 13’ private jet, The Dassault Falcon 900LX, is worth an estimated $40 million.
Taylor Swift’s 900LX private jet was purchased back in 2011.
Her second plane is a Dassault Falcon 7X – a far sleeker addition to her fleet.
The 900LX sets “the standard in its class for reliability, versatility and fuel economy” according to the French aerospace company’s website.
The private jet covers a range of up to 4,750 NM, while being more 35-40% efficient than other aircraft models in its class.
It can fly from New York to Moscow, Paris to Beijing and Mumbai to London – useful during a world tour.
Due to its spacious cabin, luxurious interiors, and improved efficiencies, Taylor Swift’s private jet is a popular choice among the 1%.
While photos of Swift’s private jet’s interiors haven’t been made public, we know the Dassault’s Falcon 900LX has capacity for up to 12.
It has a spacious cabin, with amenities including a fully equipped kitchen, a bathroom with a shower, and a bedroom.
Swift being Swift, we’d be willing to bet the interior of her plane looks a lot more ‘exotic’ than that.
Unlucky for some, the number 13 on the plane’s livery is no mistake, however.
Sidestepping any superstition, the Grammy Award winner actually considers the digits her”lucky number”.
She revealed all on The Tonight Show.
“I was born on the 13th, I turned 13 on Friday the 13th, my first album went gold in 13 weeks.Also, my first song that ever went number 1, it had a 13 second intro, I didn’t even do that on purpose!” she said.
“And every time I’ve ever won an award at an award show, I’ve either been seated in the 13th row, or row M, which is the 13th letter.
And when I won the Horizon Award at the CMA awards, the producer came up to me when I was sound-checking and he said, ‘Alright, we’re gonna go in 13 seconds!'”
Alongside the ‘Wildest Dreams’ singer’s lucky number, the registration ‘N898TS’, ending in the star’s initials, has been spotted plenty during Swift’s Era’s Tour.
Clocking up some serious air miles over spring and summer, the private jet is most frequently spotted in her hometown of Tennessee.
From there she commuted to and from cities across the US for shows with a serious security convoy.
Swift appears to have largely scaled back her jet usage through 2023 after facing criticism in 2022.
The controversy dragged up further coverage of Swift’s other Dassault jet, a Falcon 7X (N621MM).
It had reportedly emitted 8,293 tonnes of CO2 during the same period, equal to 1,200 times the average person’s annual emissions.
According to Insider, a spokesperson for Swift clarified that she purchased over twice the amount of carbon credits to offset her emissions through the tour via Terrapass.
The Falcon 900LX is noted for its enhanced take-off/landing weight ratios.
This allows the aircraft to make multiple-stop journeys without refueling.
High-Mac blended winglets also reduce fuel burn by up to 33% compared to competitor crafts.
