By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Today, Mexican President, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said that the presidential plane that he inherited from his predecessors could be given as planned to a military-run airline, where it could be rented to workers.
Lopez Obrador is committed to his austere approach to spending, Reuters report.
The luxury Boeing 787 Dreamliner is a symbol of the excesses of previous governments and since campaigning for office he has vowed to sell it.
However, finding a buyer willing to pay its $130 million price tag has proved challenging.
“The plane will be handed over to Mexicana de Aviacion for special trips,” he said adding that it would be available to rent for workers of the new airline for trips around Mexico and even to other continents.
“It would be rented in a special way for people who want to take their families, or workers, on trips as a reward for their performance,” Lopez Obrador stated.
The Mexican President is hoping to create a new airline under the auspices of Olmeca-Maya-Mexica, a military-run business set to run a handful of airports and the multibillion-dollar “Mayan Train” project being built in Yucatan.
