Taylor Swift’s CO2 Emissions From Private Jet Flights Revealed


CO2 emissions from Taylor Swift’s private jet may have been revealed, courtesy of celebrity jet tracker Jack Sweeney.

The pop star has threatened legal action against the University of Central Florida student, after he began tracing her private jet travels and sharing the details to X, formerly Twitter.

According to Sweeney’s account, Taylor Swift Jets (@SwiftJetNextDay), the 34-year-old’s private jet flights produced 77.8342 tons of carbon dioxide between December 25 and January 30.

Swift has been flying back and forth to watch her new romantic interest, Kansas City Chiefs’ tight end Travis Kelce, in NFL games. The couple began dating in July, going public with their relationship in September.

The singer’s 15 trips amounted to just over 18 hours of travel time—taking two flights in December and 13 in January—with journey times ranging from 13 minutes to 2 hours and 44 minutes.

Newyork Verified has reached out to Swift and Sweeney for comment via email.

Swift recently sold one of her two private jets, meaning the Grammy winner was unlikely to be onboard some of the January flights that Sweeney attributed to her.

According to Business Insider, the Dassault Falcon 900, was registered to SATA LLC until January 30. The company shares the same address as Taylor Swift Productions in Nashville, Tennessee.

However, the jet is now registered with Triangle Real Estate LLC, located in St. Charles, Missouri, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

The Dassault Falcon 900 flew from St. Louis, Missouri, to St. Louis, Illinois, and back again on January 30. According to Sweeney, these are likely to have been demonstrations for the buyers or maintenance flights. The two cities are very close to each other and are only separated by the Mississippi River.

However, a flight to Buffalo, New York, coincided with Swift’s appearance at the Chiefs’ vs. Buffalo Bills game on January 21, while a trip to Baltimore, Maryland, on January 28 is when the music icon watched Kansas take on the Baltimore Ravens.

Swift was previously named “biggest celebrity CO2 polluter” after the social media account Celebrity Jets trailed the private jet journeys of stars including Kylie Jenner, Stephen Spielberg and Drake.

Climate change advocates have blasted Swift’s extensive use of her private jet on several occasions.

Swift also faced backlash in December, after Sweeney’s now-deleted Instagram account, also called Taylor Swift Jets, claimed the pop legend had produced 138 tons of CO2 emissions in three months while flying back and forth to visit Kelce.

Sweeney believes tracking Swift’s private jet usage is in the public interest.

“Swift’s team suggests that I have no legitimate interest in sharing jet information, which is fundamentally incorrect,” the 21-year-old told Newyork Verified on Thursday.

“Her fans, who have grown the Taylor Swift Jets’ accounts and subreddit, are the ones truly interested. These tracking accounts consistently have more supporters and fans.”

Regardless of her carbon footprint, Swifties are desperate to know if the “Anti-Hero” singer will be there to cheer on Kelce at the Super Bowl on Sunday, with some tuning in for the first time.

Swift still owns a Dassault 7X jet, but is rumored to have charted a flight to Tokyo, Japan, instead.

Swift is performing four sold-out shows in the city after recommencing her record-smashing Eras Tour on Wednesday. She is expected to fly to Las Vegas to watch the Chiefs’ face the San Francisco 49ers at Allegiant Stadium, with the Japanese embassy reassuring fans the journey is possible, despite the tight timeframe.
