November 19, (THEWILL) – Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote has listed his Bombardier Global Express XRS jet for sale in a strategic move aimed at streamlining some of his luxury assets, one of which includes a multimillion-dollar luxury yacht. Dangote initially acquired the ultra-long-range jet for $45.5 million thirteen years ago to commemorate his 53rd birthday.
The aircraft got a makeover when it was repainted in July 2014 by Jet Aviation, St. Louis by featuring an overall Matterhorn white, dark blue, and Peking red accent stripes on the fuselage, winglets, and tail. With a capacity to accommodate 14 to 15 passengers in lavish comfort, the soon to be sold jet redefines luxury in the skies. While he owned it, it served as a sanctuary of elegance which added to its overall opulence.
