Elon Musk is in France (for a very special occasion) [MAJ]

Thanks to the permanent follow-up of his private jet on Twitter, Elon Musk is one of the most publicized travel personalities. This Saturday morning, it is in France that the billionaire put down his suitcases, after having taken off from Los Angeles ten hours earlier.

The Gulfstream G650, an ultra-luxury private jet, landed around 11 a.m. at Nice-Côte-d’Azur airport. Since then, no more information or tweets from the future owner of Twitter. The reason for his presence, unlike his other trips, should not concern Tesla or SpaceX.

Update from 05/30/2022 at 08:45: According to the @ElonJet Twitter account, Elon Musk left Nice airport on Sunday evening May 29, around 11 p.m. Finally, the billionaire will not have made any appearance in public during his stay on the Côte d’Azur. His mother, Maye Musk, on the contrary, appeared at both the Cannes Film Festival and the Monaco Grand Prix.

Original post:

Accustomed to shuttle flights between Austin (Texas) and Los Angeles (California) in the United States, Elon Musk only went to Europe to follow the progress of the work at his new Tesla factory in Berlin (Germany). Its presence in France is very rare. But the time of year is eventful on the Côte d’Azur…

Why is Elon Musk in France?

Following the main predictions, there is the Cannes Film Festival. This Saturday is the last day and the closing ceremony will follow this evening. Most of the celebrities and the show business world are there. Last month, in New York, Elon Musk showed us his interest in events of this kind. He had gone to the Met Gala, with his mother, who was also seen at the amfAR charity gala yesterday in Cannes.

Whether he joins his mother or not (who did not take the same plane as him), another reason could explain his presence. On Sunday May 29, Monaco will host the Formula 1 Grand Prix, another major event for the stars. According to the latest rumors, it would rather be this event that would explain the presence of Elon Musk in France. A very special occasion, it must be recognized, for a fervent defender of energy transition in the automobile.

Would he come to do business? Rather than appearing as a star, Elon Musk might also have chosen to come to the Côte d’Azur to meet politicians (Prince Albert II?). A week ago, he traveled to Brazil to meet President Jair Bolsonaro. Following this exchange, he promised to connect the entire Amazon with the help of his Starlink network.
