The Chief of Cabinet of the Nation and Governor of Tucumán in use of leave, Juan Luis Manzur, left this morning from Aeroparque “Jorge Newbery”, in Buenos Aires, with final destination to New York, United States. To fulfill the official mission entrusted to him by the president, Alberto Fernandez, the coordinating minister decided not to travel on a scheduled flight, but instead chose a well-known aircraft: the LeartJet 60, registration LV-CKA, owned by the Government of Tucumán.
Manzur boarded the plane at 8 a.m., according to the Buenos Aires newspaper La Nación.
On his first trip abroad as a member of Alberto Fernández’s team, Manzur heads the Argentine delegation that, together with the Minister of Economy, Martín Guzmán, has as one of the axes the negotiations for the payment of the debt with the International Monetary Fund ( IMF).
“It is an indication of the President of the Nation: to accompany the Minister of Economy in the framework of a meeting that on Friday he will have with a series of businessmen and investors at a global level. We are going to bring the vision of the national government,” said the chief Cabinet, before undertaking the official mission.
On the website of the provincial government, in the section on “official flights”, the LV-CKA plane is listed as “under repair”. Until this morning, there were no official data on the transfers made during October by the LearJet 60 or by the rest of the official fleet.
Tucumán also has another aircraft (LV-BEU) and two helicopters.
