Reading Time: < 1 minute

A U.S. government watchdog will audit Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg’s use of government airplanes for some trips, his office said on Monday.

The Transportation Department Office of Inspector General will review 18 flights Buttigieg made on Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) planes over seven trips.

The costs of the flights for Buttigieg and staff was $41,905.20 and in six of seven trips costs to fly on FAA planes were less expensive than flying commercial, the department confirmed to Reuters.

The Washington Post first reported the audit.
