The concept has been likened to a budget version of the US president's plane, Air Force One.
Needless to say, Twitter jumped at the chance to name the new plane, since the taxpayer is covering the cost.

Announced just before a round of public spending cuts, Dave's new Voyager A330 aircraft will be taken from the Royal Air Force's existing air-to-air refuelling fleet and repurposed for government use at a cost of £10m.
According to Reuters, 'repurposed' means it'll be repainted, stripped of its tanker duties and have an all-new interior with secure satellite communications systems and an increase in the number of business class seats on board.
Acknowledging the irony of purchasing a private plane while carrying out huge spending cuts, a spokesperson for the government said the move would actually save nearly £775,000 every year on chartered flights.
