Kylie Jenner has been labeled a “climate criminal” for taking incredibly short flights on her private jet.

A Twitter account known as Celebrity Jets tracks celebrities’ private flights, and found that Jenner flew from Camarillo, California, to Van Nuys, California — potentially on multiple occasions — estimating it would take Jenner just three minutes to arrive, according to Page Six. The flight ended up taking a total of 17 minutes.

The 26-mile trip would have taken an estimated 45 minutes by car, according to another PageSix report. Jenner drove 30 minutes in the opposite direction just so she could board her plane, essentially making the trip at least eight minutes longer than it needed to be, the outlet noted.

The reality show star posed for a photograph in front of her private jet Friday with beau Travis Scott, which she later shared on Instagram. Jenner captioned the post, “you wanna take mine or yours?” (RELATED: REPORT: Kendall Jenner Is Back On The Market Ahead Of Hot Girl Summer)

“Can’t wait to see Kylie Jenner post environmental awareness pics on her stories as if she isn’t single-handedly doing more damage to the environment than most of us with her 3 min flights,” one Twitter user wrote, with another reportedly calling Jenner a “full time climate criminal,” according to PageSix.

The jet cost Jenner an estimated $72 million, and takes roughly $5 million a year to maintain, the outlet continued. She purchased the jet in 2019 before the COVID-19 pandemic, PageSix reported. It can fly longer distances than smaller jets, but can’t land at a majority of private airfields because of its size, the outlet noted.
