LONDON, may 23 – RIA Novosti, Maria Tobacco. The British foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said he would not mind to have at its disposal the aircraft for business trips.
Currently, the members of the Cabinet and members of the Royal family for official travel may use the aircraft of the Royal air force Voyager, which in 2016 have been upgraded by the initiative who was then Prime Minister David Cameron. The repair and retrofitting cost £ 10 million, but Cameron himself it managed to fly only once. After Voyager passed to the next Prime Minister Theresa may, he earned the nickname Jet Thereasy.
“I can say that about the Voyager: it’s a great plane, but it is very difficult to get. He, it seems, is never free. Don’t know who flies it, but he is never free. And why does he have to be grey?”, said Johnson to reporters.
Other utility aircraft that can be used by the British foreign office, according to Johnson, good, but they are under 40 years old. On one of those planes he last year flew to Moscow.
Responding to a question, he would like to have the new aircraft, the Minister said that he would not hate.
“Taxpayers will not want to have a luxurious new plane, but I find it amazing that we have no access to the aircraft. So if there is a way to get the plane for not very much money, then Yes, I think we probably need something”, he said.
During a recent tour of the countries of Latin America, Johnson was flying a normal flight, and in Peru he was flying with a five-hour stopover in Spain.
“We, the guys from the foreign office, hardy. We are not afraid of the transplant, we’re in the aircraft,” he said.
