Wayne looked smart in a black jacket, while Klay – who was listening to music – donned a black zip-up jacket.
The father-son duo seemed to be flying in style and sat on luxurious-looking leather seats.
Two other passengers were visible behind Wayne, but the flight seemed otherwise empty.
Klay is one of four sons Wayne shares with wife Coleen Rooney, 35.

Earlier in May, the family rang Klay’s eighth birthday in style with an exuberant football-themed balloon display.
The proud parents took to Instagram at the time to post a collection of sweet photos to mark the milestone of their second eldest son.

The mother of four also shared a sweet black and white photo of herself with Klay in her story, which was taken on Friday, captioned: ‘Happy birthday Klay love you’ followed by three heart emojis.
Wayne also took to Instagram to post a photo of Klay with his impressive football-themed balloons, including two metallic silver eight figures.

It comes after MailOnline revealed that Wayne and Coleen are finally ready to move into their £ 20 million mansion, ending four difficult years of delays and scheduling rest – and they celebrated with a date night.
The couple, who recently enjoyed a luxury mini-break at the five-star Gleneagles Hotel in Scotland, celebrated the end of the football season with Wayne leading Derby County to narrowly avoid relegation – and the convenience of lockdown restrictions.
The couple took some time off from their family time with their kids for a romantic meal at the hotel’s two Michelin-starred restaurant Andrew Fairlie – with Coleen posting the photos of their adult night out on her Instagram.

MailOnline revealed that the Rooneys had one more special reason to celebrate, as their dream home building saga is almost over and they will finally move in soon, more than a year after schedule.
The former English captain, wife Coleen and four sons are relieved to be able to wave away all but one of the diggers, which became a familiar sight around the mansion.
The dozens of builders, developers, and designers have taken off and left with sources stressing that only ‘a few minor tweaks’ need to be made before moving the Rooney into the dream home.
Even the road to the house has been swept and dusted. The water and electricity are on and it is ready, ‘said a source.

When the moving vans arrive, possibly during their children’s break from school, the Rooneys will be able to enjoy the full luxury of the multi-million pound development of the home they bought for £ 4 million in 2017.
But they will have to deal with increased noise levels and groups of walkers who can beckon at the mansion from a public footpath nearby.
Their home – dubbed the ‘Morrisons Mansion’ – due to its resemblance to the supermarket chain, is on the flight path to Manchester Airport with planes flying directly over it, as revealed by MailOnline.
Work was halted for several weeks during the lockdown as supplies of building materials ceased during the pandemic.
They originally signed January 2020 as their move date.
