John Travolta's Son Feeds Monkey And Takes Private Plane On Overseas Family Vacation

Aug 09, 2023 by apost team

John Travolta comes from a family of entertainers. His parents worked in the entertainment industry, and he and his five siblings picked acting careers. John dropped out of high school at 17 after deciding he wanted an acting career. Not long after this, he got a role on Broadway in “Grease.” Five years later, the actor got his big break and became the nation’s heartthrob. Although his career had a lull in the 80s, it picked up again in the 90s, and the actor continued with a succession of films that cemented his position in the industry. 

John also has other passions besides acting. He is a trained pilot with three licenses. He has licenses to pilot the Boeing 737, Boeing 707 and Boeing 747, and other aircraft. To demonstrate his love for flying, John built and moved into a 550-acre house in Florida in the late 1990s. The Jumbolair Aviation Estates was specifically built for people looking to fly in and out of their homes. 

The house fulfilled John’s dream of having a place where planes could land in the yard. One of the planes parked in one of the pavilions in the house is the Gulfstream II jet. The multi-hyphenate is also a singer and has released several albums, of which four singles have made the Billboard Hot 100’s Top 40. 

One of the things that holds John’s heart the most is parenting his two children, Ella Travolta and Benjamin Travolta. On July 27, 2023, he posted a video of a family trip to Japan with his kids. The singer recorded special moments and shared the heartwarming video with fans. Continue reading to get the details of the family’s trip.

John is no stranger to grief and loss. He lost his wife, actress Kelly Preston in July 2020 to breast cancer when she was just 57. After releasing a statement about his spouse’s death to a shocked public who were previously unaware of Preston’s cancer diagnosis, the actor asked for time to grieve his late wife. John started making public appearances in late 2020.

Preston and John met in 1988 while filming, and they married in 1991. The actors had a good marriage which Preston revealed was made stronger by them going for regular therapy sessions. The couple shared three children, Jett Travolta, Ella, 23, and Benjamin, 12. Unfortunately, Jett died when he was 16. The late teen had a seizure in the bathroom and hit his head on a bathtub when the family went on a vacation in the Bahamas. 

John and Preston welcomed Benjamin a year after their son passed in 2009. The pilot credited his recovery from the pain to the birth of his second son and his immediate family. Jett was autistic and had seizures regularly when he was alive. After his death, John founded a foundation in his honor for children with special needs. The foundation has donated to organizations like the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy, Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential, and the Simon Wiesenthal Center.

The 69-year-old philanthropist is very protective of his remaining two children and constantly dotes on them. He said that he would do anything and everything he could to help his children. He said

“I will ensure the future of my children, help them with what they want to do with their lives.”

On July 27, 2023, the star actor shared a heartwarming post with followers on his Instagram page. John shared a video of short clips from his family’s trip to Japan in a private plane. His son Ben and daughter Ella were featured in the clip, which had AJR’s 2021 hit song “Bang!” playing in the background. 

“Here’s our Summer trip to Japan,” John captioned the video.

The family stopped briefly in Seattle before they and many other family friends crossed the pond. The “Grease” actor also took photos and videos on the observation deck with several other tourists. Later, the video showed the moment the entire party sat at a large table eating.

When they returned to the plane, John showed their itinerary, whose cover read “Travolta World Airlines,” and revealed a 10-hour flight time from Seattle to Tokyo. After they touched down in Tokyo, Japan, the video showed Ben playing with some owls. Afterward, a scene of a white bullet train arriving followed. 

John then showed himself and Ella together before they boarded the bullet train. He also shared a shot of himself and Ben waiting for the train. On the train, John raised his drink as he said, “Come on, Barbie, let’s go party.” 

The next scene showed the group at a zoo where Benjamin fed a monkey through a metal cage. Later, Ella and her brother stood in front of a temple. Following this, Ben and his friends posed with Charlie Brown and Snoopy from the Peanuts comics before visiting a theme park. Toward the end, they visited a waterpark and played before returning to the United States.
