Roman Abramovich’s aircraft fleet is valued at around £400million in total, but none of his private jets can compare to ‘The Bandit’.

After buying the aircraft in 2004, the Russian oligarch transformed the Boeing 747-33A ER into one of the most luxury private jets in the world and is believed to be worth around £250 million.

The Chelsea owner keeps his customised air palace at the Harrods Aviation facility London Stansted Airport, with The Bandit possessing a superb interior design and security system.

Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich is believed to be worth around £8.6billion, with the 53-year-old’s aircraft fleet valued at around £400million

The interior design is made up of chestnut, gold trim and other luxury metals and fine wood, which were just some of the oligarch’s changes to the airplane he originally bought. 

Mr Abramovich’s luxury jet also contains a banquet hall which can hold up to 30 people, while he also sanctioned the construction of a kitchen, office and bedroom with a massive double bed on board the aircraft. 

‘The Bandit’ is also one of the most secure aircraft on the planet due to its extensive security system.

The anti-ballistic defence system is believed to have costed around £1.5million while ‘The Bandit’ is also equipped with a world-class security system. 

It is believed that the Chelsea owner, who is believed to be worth around £8.6billion, spent over £200million renovating ‘The Bandit’.
