High flyers love Toronto: TIFF attracted a host of millionaires and their favorite planes to Pearson International Airport this past month

TORONTO - Action star Jackie Chan is a man on the move who wings his entourage to gigs around the world in luxury and comfort.

The star, who is busy with acting and charitable work, flew to Toronto earlier this month in his personal $20 million jet to make special appearances at TIFF.

Chan’s brightly decorated Brazilian-made Embraer ERJ-135 jet can carry up to 37 people while cruising at 37,000 feet and hitting speeds of 1,335 kms an hour. It has a large galley that is geared for fine dining on those long flights.

The aircraft features white leather couches, large chairs and all the electronic toys to keep Chan connected as he was traveling here to be a guest of honor at TIFF’s first Asian film summit on Sept. 10 to promote collaborations between Asian and North American film makers.

The star, who is known for his death-defying stunts, was only in town for a couple days before returning to Asia, where he is an icon with a number of charities to his name.

The co-star of the ‘Rush Hour’ movie series spends a lot of time in the air and this year alone his plane has flown multiple times to Singapore, China, Bejing, U.S. and Canada. He was out of dodge after about 72-hours in the TIFF limelight.
