The Palmeiras squad did not use president Leila Pereira’s plane to travel to Rio de Janeiro, where they will face Flamengo on Wednesday night (8), in the Brazilian Championship. The plane for use in Verdão belongs to the president’s company Placar Linhas Aéreas.
The trip did not take place on Leila’s aircraft, as the plane is undergoing scheduled maintenance in the United States, according to information from UOL. The trip to Rio de Janeiro to face Botafogo, last week, was also not made by Placar aircraft.

Without Leila’s plane, Palmeiras chartered flights with other airlines for both trips, as was done before purchasing the aircraft. So far, there is no information about the exact period that the plane provided to the club will be unavailable.
The use of the president’s aircraft aims to reduce Palmeiras’ travel expenses, in addition to facilitating the cast’s logistics. In a recent interview, Leila revealed that the club has already saved around R$3 million using the plane.
In Rio de Janeiro, Palmeiras enters the field at 9:30 pm (Brasília time), this Wednesday, at Maracanã, to face Flamengo. The probability is that the squad will return to São Paulo after the match.
