Elon Musk’s private jet made a total of 134 flights in 2022, with trips to the UK, Brazil, Qatar and Germany.

The tally was pulled together by Jack Sweeney, who you may remember got his @Elonjet account banned from Twitter in December.

Sweeney, who has been tracking Musk’s Gulfstream G650ER plane since 2020, has shared new data showing how many times - and for how long - the jet flew last year.

However, the data cannot show whether Musk was on board at the time or whether someone else was using the plane.

The date revealed Musk had flown to Qatar, most likely to watch the World Cup final where he was snapped in attendance.

It also showed the plane made trips to France, Italy, Greece and Norway, while the jet’s most visited locations included Los Angeles and Austin in Texas.

The plane's longest flight was from Mykonos, Greece to Austin, Texas on July 18, with Musk have been photographed in Greece just a couple of days before the trip.

And on the other end of the spectrum, the shortest flight time was just six minutes at Long Beach Airport - but is most likely to have been the plane being moved around, rather than actual journey.

The flights combined produced 1,895 tonnes of CO2, while costing over $1.1 million in fuel.

Sweeney was booted off the platform back in December, with Musk accusing Sweeney of ‘doxing’ him.

In a tweet, Musk wrote: “Any account doxxing real-time location info of anyone will be suspended, as it is a physical safety violation. This includes posting links to sites with real-time location info.

“Posting locations someone traveled to on a slightly delayed basis isn’t a safety problem, so is OK.”

He also tweeted to say: “Legal action is being taken against Sweeney & organisations who supported harm to my family.”

Speaking to the Independent at the time, Sweeney said he hadn’t heard from Musk since the ban and wasn’t concerned about any legal action just yet.

He said: “I’m doing fine. He’s just saying that on Twitter, there’s nothing official and there probably won’t be.”

In order to stick to Musk's new rules, Sweeney created an account under the handle @ElonJetNextDay and the name 'ElonJet but Delayed'.

Instead of relaying the details of Musk's flights immediately, he will now share the information 24 hours later.

Speaking to the New York Post, Sweeney explained: "The 24-hour delay is allowed on Twitter."

Musk isn’t the only high-profile celebrity Sweeney tracked - he also ran accounts for jets belonging to Donald Trump, Jeff Bezos and Mark Zuckerberg.
