Nicolas Sarkozy named presidential jet Carla after his wife

Updated on : Saturday, July 11, 2009

PARIS: Mr Sarkozy defied the recession last year to order £240 million worth of planes, including an Airbus designed to be bigger than any flown by other European leaders, and two corporate run-arounds for shorter trips.

The first, a hugely luxurious Dassault Falcon 7X with a range of 6,000 nautical miles, has now been delivered complete with the hand-painted "Carla One" glistening on its side, in honour of his wife Carla Bruni.

When they married last year, Mr Sarkozy made it clear that the former super model would have the very best in aviation luxury to transport her around the world.

The Falcon comes with full leather seats and teak desks - it is understood to be red, white and blue.
