Britain’s foreign secretary Boris Johnson says he needs a Brexit plane for his global travels because the Prime Minister’s jet “is never available.”
Boris Johnson is currently on a five-day tour of South America, jet-setting around Peru, Argentina and Chile with entourage of officials and journalists where he admitted he’d rather like his own private Brexit themed plane for meet his globe trotting needs.
“If there’s a way of doing it that is not exorbitantly expensive then yes, I think we probably do need something,” Mr. Johnson told reporters. Appearing to have a bit of a conscience, Boris suggested the Brexit jet shouldn’t be overly “luxurious.”
“The taxpayers won’t want us to have some luxurious new plane, but I certainly think its striking that we don’t seem to have access to such a thing at the moment,” Mr. Johnson told reporters.

Ever since the Prime Minister’s RAF Voyager underwent a US$12 million refit, it “never seems to be available,” according to Britain’s Foreign Secretary, often borrowed by members of the Royal Family and senior cabinet members.
But it’s not like Boris doesn’t have any other planes to fly on. The Royal fleet of BAE 146 planes are available to the Foreign Office, boarding one as recently as last year to travel to Moscow.
