During the trial of British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell last week, a testimony was heard from a woman known only as “Jane” who claims she met Prince Andrew on Jeffery Epstein‘s private jet.
An MoS investigation has since discovered flight logs that reveal the prince flew on Epstein’s jet at least four times – and possibly many more.
The flights included going to and from Epstein’s private Caribbean island, Little St James, which is now widely known as “pedophile island” due to the alarming abuse that took place there.
The new information also begets questions about the Duke of York’s friendship with Epstein, who took his own life in a New York prison in 2019.
The Prince has previously admitted to visiting Little St James but urges he never saw anything untoward.
Epstein owned four jets and an executive helicopter, all of which were used to transport underage girls to his multiple homes, where they were sexually abused.
And then, in November 2019, Andrew admitted that he had flown on Epstein’s “private plane” during his BBC Newsnight interview, but did not specify which one or how many times.
But flight records seen by the MoS suggest that the Duke’s first flight was to the billionaire’s private Caribbean island in the US Virgin Islands on February 9, 1999. An onboard, per the flight logs, were Epstein, Maxwell, and one of the Duke’s personal protection officers.
A source close to Andrew stated in 2019 that the Duke has “no recollection” of being on the 1999 flight.
The records obtained by the MoS also reveal how Andrew flew on Epstein’s Gulfstream from Teterboro Airport in New Jersey to West Palm Beach on May 12, 2000.
And finally, on September 1, 2006, exactly six weeks after Epstein was arrested for sex offenses, Andrew took a flight on the Gulfstream with Maxwell from London Luton to Edinburgh.
The words “Prince Andrew” are clearly recorded in the logs for each of these four flights. But the Duke may actually have been on many more flights than previously believed.
One of Epstein’s former pilots David Rodgers informed investigators that he annotated Prince Andrew’s name to “AP” on an “unknown number” of occasions. And an “AP” is recorded as a passenger on Epstein aircraft more than 100 times.
Rodgers also confirms Jane’s claim that she traveled on a flight with Andrew as part of a sworn testimony during a previous civil case.
