When it comes to seeing her new man Travis Kelce, Taylor Swift will take as many flights as she needs – with the star tallying up more than 12 journeys, and counting, in the past three months alone.
The superstar singer was named the biggest celebrity CO2 polluter of the year in 2022, and she looks set to take the title for a second consecutive year as she squeezes in quality time with the Kansas City Chiefs tight end.
Swift, 34, has not only flown back and forth between New York and Kansas City, but has also made trips in-between performances in South America for her ongoing Eras World Tour as her romance with NFL star continues to develop.
Based on statistics tracked by Taylor Swift’s Jets on Instagram, the hitmaker’s trips have produced 138 tons of CO2 emission to date.
The singer would need to plant 2,282 trees and allow these to grow for 10 years in order to offset the environmental damage caused by her flights.

The 34-year-old hitmaker has made more than 12 journeys in the past three months alone, according to Taylor Swift’s Jets, producing 138 tons of C02 emission to date
It is the equivalent of the energy used by 17 houses in one year, or the electricity use of 26.9 homes for one year, according to the Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator.
Swift owns two multi-million dollar planes: a Dassault Falcon 7x, registered N621MM under Island Jet Inc. and a Dassault Falcon 900, registered N898TS under SATA LLFC.
Both companies are tied to Taylor Swift Productions in Nashville, Tennessee, according to documents from the Tennessee Secretary of State.
After she came out on top in the 2022 pollution rankings, Taylor’s representative hit back, claiming Swift often lets other people take her Falcon 7X jet on jaunts around the world.
However, there is no question she has been onboard the jet during the many flights between Kansas City, New York and several other stops since September.
The journeys have used up 12,622 gallons of jet fuel, which is calculated to be worth a whopping $70,779.
In her biggest trip to date, Swift flew from Sao Paulo, Brazil to Kansas City – with a stop over in Tampa, Florida.
The journey used 4,151 gallons of fuel, which is believed to be worth $23, 250.

A spokesperson for Swift toldshe was working to lessen her jets’ carbon emissions by traveling less frequently than in previous years.
‘Before the tour kicked off in March of 2023, Taylor purchased more than double the carbon credits needed to offset all tour travel,’ the spokesperson explained.
The excess credits means Taylor could have accounted for more than enough to cover her latest romance springing up in the middle of her sell-out tour, with her trips to support Kelce upping her carbon emissions alongside her planned tour travels.
Taylor had temporarily moved in to her boyfriend’s $6 million Kansas City mansion while on a break from the tour, with a moving truck pictured outside last month.previously revealed that
A separate source claimed that the pair were using it as a ‘practice run,’ with Taylor keen to move in for good with her ‘soulmate’ if all goes well.
Swift doesn’t return to the stage until February 7, when she takes her tour to Japan.
Indeed, the singer will be taking her Eras Tour to Europe, Asia, and Australia in 2024. She also announced her intention to tour again in the US next year.
The couple are said to be ‘obsessed’ with each other, with the pair flying to and from his games and her concerts to spend time together.
‘While Taylor is not officially moving in with Travis, her friends and family believe she isn’t exactly moving out either,’ a source close to the Blank Space singer toldexclusively.
Taylor was first seen watching Travis play with the Kansas City Chiefs alongside his mother Donna in September. She has since flown back and forth to watch several games

Taylor recently opened up about her romance with Travis for the first time in an interview with TIME magazine – and shut down rumors that their first date was her first appearance at one of his home games.
‘This all started when Travis very adorably put me on blast on his podcast, which I thought was metal as hell,’ she told the publication.
‘We started hanging out right after that. So we actually had a significant amount of time that no one knew, which I’m grateful for, because we got to get to know each other.
‘By the time I went to that first game, we were a couple. I think some people think that they saw our first date at that game? We would never be psychotic enough to hard launch a first date.’
When she traveled back east from the first outing with Travis, Taylor rented a Hawker Beechcraft 4000, instead of taking one of the two jets she owns.
The Beechcraft burns around 2,600 pounds of fuel over its first hour of flight time and subsequent hours are 1,800 to 1,900 pounds.
Since then, the star has used her own jets in order to make sure she is around to support Travis’ team during games in Kansas City, New Jersey and Denver.
