After this "transparency exercise" by the PP leader, he asks the PSOE to report on the media used by Sánchez, such as the Falcon
MADRID, 22 May. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The PP considers that "the desperation" of the PSOE in this final stretch of the campaign for the elections on May 28 is what has led its leaders to "doubt the cancellation of a flight" that Alberto Núñez Feijóo was going to take this Sunday between Valencia and Tenerife. Given this fact, PP sources have responded to the Socialists with the data of that flight and showing the boarding pass for it.
The PSOE had accused the president of the PP of lying and had asked him to provide evidence that the flight that was to take him from Valencia to Tenerife was cancelled, according to socialist sources, who even speak of a "ghost flight."
This Sunday, Feijóo announced that the regular flight on which he had to travel to arrive at a rally in Tenerife scheduled for 8:30 p.m. that same afternoon had been cancelled. "Not going in Falcon has these things," Feijóo added in a message on Twitter, criticizing the Prime Minister for the use he makes of his private plane and that the PP leader repeats at all his rallies.
PP sources have indicated that questioning Feijóo's flight shows the "desperation of the PSOE in the final stretch of the campaign" and they have shown data from it -including a photo of the boarding pass with the 2D seat- "for the sake of give maximum transparency to the campaign trips" of the leader of the Popular Party.
Thus, the PP has explained that "the VLC-TFN FR630 flight that Feijóo was going to take was scheduled by a low-cost airline." "It left Valencia at 5:55 p.m. with the doors closing at 5:25 p.m. It was reserved and paid for on April 20 along with that of his companion," the same sources have added.
The Popular Party has indicated that Feijóo "went to the airport around 4:15 p.m. after holding a meeting with at least 25 media professionals in Valencia."
"Informed in Manises of the cancellation of the flight, with the boarding passes already issued, he is forced to cancel his act in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, apologize to the affiliates through a video sent to the president of the PP of the Canary Islands, and seek another ticket to travel to the Islands", added the formation.
Thus, the PP has indicated that, "after several inquiries, it was proven that the airline informed by email (to the account provided by the travel agency that manages the party's travel) of the cancellation of the flight."
"However, there was no communication of this circumstance from the travel agency itself to the Popular Party," according to the same sources. The PP has ensured that Feijóo finally traveled at 7:50 p.m. on a regular flight, arriving in the Canary Islands late at night.
In addition, he has stressed that "each and every one of the movements" of Feijóo in this campaign have been carried out in a Popular Party vehicle, on trains or on regular flights. "Any data about ticket schedules and others is available to the media," added the PP.
Once "this transparency exercise" has been carried out, the PP asks the PSOE "to report the means of transport used by its general secretary to attend his electoral acts", alluding to the use of the Falcon.
What's more, the PP believes that Pedro Sánchez's team should clarify if it considers that, "in a country that mocks the use of the Falcon to go to musical concerts or travel in a Super Puma helicopter to go to private weddings, the optimum for their interests would be to confront the PP about the means of transport used" by Feijóo. "It is evident that the gap between what Ferraz thinks and what the street thinks is increasingly evident," the PP concluded in the same statement.
