Riding in style! Find out why Duterte considers helicopters his only luxury
If there’s one luxury President Rodrigo Duterte admits to having, it’s riding a helicopter to go places.
In a speech during an event of the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) Thursday (Januaary 11), Duterte said he rides helicopters so he could make it to his engagements.
“So I have to do it because I have so many things to honor for a day. And if I travel, wala na, hanggang diyan lang ako,” he said.
In addition to efficiency, Duterte said riding helicopters spares the public the hassle associated with securing his travel by land.
“That is the only luxury and only because I do not want to inconvenience people. Kasi linisin ‘yang daan. Thirty minutes or one hour before i-divert na kayo,” he said.
