Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's trip to Jamaica (Christmas 2022)

The Right Honourable Justin Trudeau is a hard working international leader, and if he wants to take a week off in Jamaica with his family, he sure can - and did.

On 2022-12-26 The Right Honourable Justin Trudeau and his entourage flew from Ottawa to Jamaica on RCAF CC-144D 144620.

The flight to Jamaica kept west of Cuban airspace on the way there.

On 2023-01-04 RCAF CC-144D 144620 was picked up by the global network of ADSBexchange receivers at 18:38Z, flying at 38,000ft over Cuba on the way back to Ottawa from Jamaica, which is notable because they avoided Cuban airspace on the way there.

The Canadian Prime Minister's travel is a frequent target for Canadian right-wing media who seek to portray it as excessive and costly, but by using the smallest, most modern, and economical jet in the RCAF fleet, the flight details show quite the opposite.
