The owner of Leicester City football club arrived into Cardiff Airport this afternoon ahead of their premiership clash with Swansea City.

The Thai born billionaire businessman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha arrived from Luton into Cardiff Airport at 14:39 onboard one of his private jets, Gulfstream G650 HS-VSK. He then boarded his private helicopter, an Augusta A109S G-LCFC for the short hop down the coast to Liberty Stadium.

The Thai owner of King Power Group has owned Leicester City since 2010 and regularly travels to games using his fleet of private jets.

The Gulfstream G650 is an intercontinental business jet, the largest in the Gulfstream family. It is capable of flying up to 7000miles carrying up 19 passengers. Each aircraft is individually tailored to suit each client with a range of options including sleeping cabins. Each jet costs around $64.5m before customising options.
