We understand that the leader of a country is responsible for a lot, and similarly deserves to be rewarded for their efforts, but sometimes their expenditures leave us normal folk flabbergasted. When it comes to visiting their friends in other countries, it helps to arrive in style and make a scene to ensure they are taken seriously. It is for this reason – as well as the obvious security requirements – that they choose some of the most expensive aircraft to ever be created. This is a list of ten of the most expensive planes for the leaders of countries.

Boeing 777-300ER

Purchased for the president of Bangladesh for a mere $260 million, this version of the plane is considerably lighter and more efficient, even though it has seating for business and economy. Although it can fly nonstop to several European destinations, it produces 22% less carbon dioxide than previous models.

Airbus A340-600

Although this plane is not the most expensive on this list, this Airbus uses less fuel than other planes, despite having four Rolls-Royce engines. At $275 million, this plane is fit for the Jordanian Prime Minister with the most modern technology in aviation.
