The emeritus king is already flying on his way to Spain. His plane took off at 1:15 p.m. local time from Abu Dhabi (11:15 a.m. peninsular time) and is scheduled to land at Vigo airport around 7:00 p.m.
It is the first flight that King Juan Carlos has made to Spain since he installed his habitual residence in the United Arab Emirates two years ago. Once he arrives in Galicia, he will travel to the town of Sanxenxo.
