Toilet in the kitchen: this is what Jeff Bezos' private Swiss plane looks like from the inside

Of course, the relatively modest Pilatus PC-24 isn't Amazon founder Jeff Bezos' only private jet. But the compact business jet has some advantages, as an inside look reveals.

no time? Blue News sums it up for you

  • According to data from the JetSpy portal, Jeff Bezos owns three private jets with a total value of $140 million (125 million Swiss francs).
  • Among them is a Swiss machine: the Pilatus PC-24, which the Stans-based company describes as “the only multi-purpose aircraft in the world.”
  • Despite its compact dimensions, the aircraft offers space for up to 10 people. The highlight of the cabin is a unique toilet installed in the galley to save space.

In fact, the Gulfstream G650ER is the private jet of choice for the wealthy. Elon Musk and Bill Gates fly it around the world. Amazon ecologist Jeff Bezos, currently the second richest person in the world, owns two of these machines.

But that's not all: Bezos owns another plane, one made in Switzerland. As reported by the JetSpy portal, Bezos owns a PC-24 from the Stans-based aircraft manufacturer Pilatus. The plane is too small for a man of Bezos' financial stature. However, it is much smaller than his Gulfstream. In addition, the 3,500 km range is quite manageable.

But Jeff Bezos seems happy to accept that he'll have to stop for gas on the way from his home in Florida to Amazon's headquarters in Seattle. According to the manufacturer, “the world's only multi-purpose aircraft” has a decisive advantage: the PC-24 can take off and land almost anywhere, even on very short unpaved runways.

Size doesn't always matter. Especially since the cabin of the PC-24, with a height of only 1.50 meters, is not only luxurious, but also well-equipped, as can be seen at the exhibition. The fact that the toilet is located in the galley may take some getting used to, but there is a reason: the design saves space in the aft area of ​​the aircraft – for a cargo compartment with a load capacity of 1,400 kg.
