Mexico’s newly-elected President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador will set in to make some sweeping changes. His first order is to sell the president’s jet used by his predecessor.
According to Bloomberg, Lopez decided Obrador’s decision to sell the planet, which he considered to be “too lavish” that a campaign was fulfilled.
The current planet is a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner, acquired by the Mexican government in March 2016 and used by former President Pena Nieto.
Reuters reports that Lopez Obrador told a rally in Xalapa, Veracruz, on Saturday at the end of his first full day as president, “We sell all airplanes and helicopters that the corrupt politicians used” because the audience broke approval.

The $ 21
8 million president jet will be sold alongside 60 state plans and 70 helicopters, Reuters reported.
According to AirFleets.net, the Mexican jet was the sixth Boeing Dreamliner ever produced and made its first flight on October 4, 2010. The aircraft was part of an early Boeing 787s rolling off the line while the company was working through production problems.
The plane was set for half a decade before the Mexican Air Force decided to convert the airline for use as a presidential transport.
The Mexican finance minister Carlos Urzua made it possible for journalists and photographers to visit the interior of the plane on Saturday.
