Ignacio Cassis flew a Federal Council plane 95 times last year.
He travels from Bern Belp to Lugano-Agno once a month.
If you look at the travel behavior of other Federal Council members, it becomes clear that Cassie flies the most.
95 times it was FDPFederal Chancellor Ignazio Cassis With a federally owned Falcon or Cessna on the road last year. However, excursions do not always lead abroad. The Secretary of State took the plane on domestic flights 44 times. Other Federal Council members usually took the chopper when things needed to be done quickly, like him “Scenery” mentioned. Transport Minister Simonetta Sommaruga has flown at least 13 times.
Cassis lives in Montagnola, in the canton of Ticino. Almost every second flight started from Lugano-Agno Airport. Cassis travels from Bern-Belp to Ticino once a month. A spokesperson for the Secretary of State told Blake: “Within our country, Federal Chancellor Cassis travels primarily by car or train. If these means of transport are not preferred because of deadlines, the choice falls on the plane or helicopter, depending on the route, layout and weather.”
If you look at the travel behavior of other Federal Council members, it becomes clear that Cassie flies the most. Karen Keller-Sutter has flown 30 times, and Ueli Maurer has used the Federal Council plane 21 times. Federal advisors VSP Sommaruga and Perset used the plane the least often with 13 and 14 flights respectively.
What’s also remarkable: Casey is very hospitable, always letting other politicians fly in the Federal Council plane. For example, the President of the Republic of Moldova, Maya Sandu (51 years old), and her bodyguard. But Swiss politicians and journalists were allowed to travel with the foreign minister.
