Like many families, the Obamas will head home to celebrate the holidays, but odds are their flight will cost slightly more than your typical Christmas airfare.

According to Judicial Watch, it costs aproximately $206,000 per hour to operate Air Force One. Factor in the 18 hours of round-trip airtime, and it looks like the Obamas’ Dec. 18th flight to Hawaii and return after the New Year will cost an astounding $3.7 million, with American tax payers footing the bill.

Earlier in 2015, President Obama took three “unnecessary” golf and family vacations, costing tax payers $3,115,688. (RELATED: Guess How Much Obama’s Golf And Family Vacations Cost The American People)

“The Obamas’ travel is out of control. They are treating the Air Force One like an Uber ride,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told AL.com. “And President Obama seems oblivious to the burden he is placing on Americans with his continuous vacations, getaways, and political junkets at taxpayer expense.”
