Argentine star Lionel Messi has sparked controversy on social media for failing to arrive at his home in the Java region, 25 km from the Spanish city of Barcelona.
What piqued the curiosity of social media users was a statement by Javier Sanchez Priet, president of a low-cost airline in Spain, that he spoke about the extensions of El Prat Airport in Barcelona, where he stressed that it was very complicated because the plane could not cross the Argentinian home Messi, where he said at the time, was not happening anywhere in the world.
The Spanish newspaper "AS" has revealed the reasons why the aircraft was prevented from flying above the Barcelona captain's house, which is not at all related to the privacy of a famous player and protects him from curious and paparazzi photographers or keeps him from embarrassment.
The real reason lies in the location of the municipality of Java, located in the Parque Nature Reserve in Del Grave, a protected area under environmental laws in Spain, where it contains endangered plants and animals.
In order not to pass home the best player of the world six times, an aircraft arriving at El Prat Airport went on a tour of the Mediterranean to bypass the area, which raised passengers the question of the city of Barcelona, Spain, which is the reason for that tour.
