Travel Daily - - News -

WHAT was once Clive Palmer’s pri­vate jet, seized in 2016 af­ter the Aus­tralian busi­ness mag­nate had fi­nan­cial is­sues, now lives on as a party plane.

The 14-seat Global Ex­press jet is now in the hands of a Ger­man­based rent-a-jet com­pany, of­ten mak­ing trips to the Span­ish party cap­i­tal of Ibiza.

The jet has been given a makeover, with the Palmer United Party yel­low on the out­side painted over with white and the wood pan­elling and beige car­pet re­placed by re­flected chrome and dark grey car­pet and lounge seats.

Although the fi­nal sale price is un­known, the jet was last on the mar­ket for $6.95 mil­lion well be­low the $40 mil­lion it was pur­port­edly once worth.
