The New England Patriots have arrived in Tampa Bay in style.
The reigning Super Bowl champion team has a new private plane deemed the “AirKraft,” named after team owner Robert Kraft. The New England Patriots released a video tour of their new ride ahead of their trip to Tampa Bay for their game against the Buccaneers and the 767 Boeing is clearly fit for champions.

The Patriots became the first franchise in NFL history to get its own private plane for team travel when they purchased two 767 Boeing wide-body jets during the offseason. NFL teams typically charter regular commercial airline planes for their away games, but with the rising costs of commercial flights, the Patriots newest purchase is not a bad move.
In addition to the customized design on the outside, which features the Patriots logo along the side and the five Lombardi trophies on the tail, the inside is also customized with the widest and largest seats with more leg room than a typical first-class seat has.

The Buccaneers better get ready for their game against the Patriots on Thursday night, because the road just got a lot more comfortable for New England.
