Drake defends 14-minute flight with his private jet after setback

The reason was flat and simple.

Drake claimed that “logistics” was behind the 14-minute flight of his private jet, sparking outrage from environmentally conscious fans.

“These are just those moving planes to the airport where they are stored for anyone interested in logistics…no one is taking that flight,” said Drake, 35, in an Instagram post that drew multiple headlines about the accusation.

The “Jimmy Cooks” rapper offered the statement after several reports surfaced that he allegedly used his $185 million luxury jet called “Air Drake” to fly the short distance.

Drake’s plane was recorded taking off from Hamilton to Toronto on a flight of 18 minutes on July 12, according to CelebJets. The plane then made the same journey on a 14 minute flight on June 28, and again on a 16 minute flight June 17. Each of the flights emitted about five tons of carbon dioxide, CelebJets reported.

Climate activists dragged the OVO artist along for the rapid flights that emit greenhouse gases that are harmful to the environment.

“I think as a society we need to have a conversation about whether we should allow these private flights in the first place,” climate campaign coordinator Ian Borsuk told CTV New Toronto (via VladTV.) “I think it can be really frustrating for some people. are when, you know, they think to themselves, ‘Okay, well, I’m doing everything I can in my daily routine to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, like taking public transportation, buying local products and stuff like that. .”

Drake has lived the lavish life, traveling around Europe in a $660,000 yacht where he was seen hanging out with YouTube star Suede Brooks.

Last week, Kylie Jenner also suffered backlash and was dubbed a “climate criminal” after her private jet traveled just 17 minutes from Camarillo, California, to Van Nuys, California earlier this month. The tour takes only 45 minutes by car.

Jenner has yet to comment on the outcry and instead bragged about how she and her children’s father, Travis Scott, both have private jets.
