To the plane of the monarch could not choose a ladder of the required height. The airport authority even considered the option to divert the plane to another port.
The king of Spain Felipe VI and his wife Queen Letizia, who in the night of Monday, March 25, arrived in Argentina on a state visit, nearly an hour remained in the plane because of the lack of gangway desired height, according to Vanguardia.
The airplane of the Spanish air force Airbus to the Royal couple on Board arrived in Buenos Aires about nine o’clock, and about another 15 minutes expected free space for landing at the airport Jorge Newbery. After landing Felipe VI and Queen Letizia had to go to the waiting of the delegation – the foreign Ministers of Spain and Argentina and other distinguished guests, however, enjoyed the ladder did not reach the aircraft door.
Among the solutions to the problem were discussed redirection of the Royal plane at the airport of Ezeiza – another air harbour of the Argentinean capital. In the end, Airbus has submitted any height ladder, and the monarch of Spain was able to go to meeting after an hour of waiting.
Felipe VI and his wife received an invitation to come to Argentina from the country’s President Mauricio Macri. The trip aims to “demonstrate the intensity of bilateral relations and the intention to continue to deepen and diversify”.
