Private aviation has been booming since the start of the pandemic, with more and more travellers recognising the convenience and efficiency of flying on private jets . Not only do passengers avoid long security queues and crowded airports, but they can also enjoy the luxuries on board. The industry is reshaping itself with new business jets to keep up with growing demand. Amenities vary plane to plane, with smaller business aircraft like Volaris’ HondaJet offering four large recliners and a small galley in the cabin. The hourly rate is US$4,000. Meanwhile, deep-pocket travellers who want even more luxury and sophistication can opt for larger aircraft with multiple living spaces, like VistaJet’s Bombardier Global 7500, which costs tens of thousands of dollars to charter. Florida-based aviation design company VIP Completions has enjoyed the surge in demand, taking on unique projects from rich clients wanting to customise their plane. Why will travel cost more from 2022 – and how does sustainability fit in? On Thursday, April 21, the firm announced the completion of the interior and exterior refurbishment of a Boeing 767 private aircraft owned by entrepreneur, lawyer and philanthropist, John Ruiz. The jet, which can carry 33 people and sleep 17, is the biggest project the company has taken on to date. It features six living areas, including a bedroom, dining room and home cinema. According to VIP Completions president Ben Shirazi, the plane will “more closely resemble a luxury home than a business aircraft” once delivered. “Beyond its size and the potential that offers, the 767 stands out from other VIP widebody platforms because of its impressive range, altitude and speed capabilities,” Shirazi said. Ruiz’s mammoth plane features six distinct living spaces, two of which are in the main lounge. The spacious lounge features a dining room that seats seven and an entertainment area with an 80-inch home cinema and DJ station with an audiophile-calibre sound system.

The private jet offers state-of-the-art high-speed internet, full-spectrum LED lighting and an HD audio system, all of which are controlled by an iPad. Not only did VIP Completions remake the interior, but it also gave the plane a modern paint job. The new bold exterior features “black, white and pearl with fine accents” using high-quality paint. Moreover, the engine cowlings were given a shiny “carbon fibre effect”. The project is one of over 15 private planes the company has done for Ruiz and other clients. For example, VIP Completions has customised a Bombardier Challenger 605 and a Dassault Falcon 900c. This article originally appeared on Insider Want more stories like this?
