Patriots become first National Football League team to have own planes

Patriots become first NFL team to have own planes

In fact, New England bought two planes - with the team purchasing a pair of 767 Boeing wide-body jets in the offseason and upgrading them with all first-class seats.

If the planes are brand-new, they may have cost as much as $200 million each.

The New England Patriots have purchased two airplanes to become the first National Football League team to own their own planes to fly to games, according to ESPN's Darren Rovell. A source said the planes the Patriots bought are extended range, which allows the planes to fly nonstop for about 12 hours.

Honestly, it's a bit surprising the team didn't leave room on the tail for a few more Lombardi Trophies. The Patriots have plans to rent out the planes when they're not in use by the team - so if you've even wanted to sit in Tom Brady's seat then you might want to do a little research and cash in that jar of coins in the garage. Patriots spokesman Stacey James said team officials would not be publicly commenting on the acquisitions.

The New England Patriots set a new bar for National Football League luxury when they became the team to first purchase their own airplane. The sports network cited sources who said those 10 round-trips can cost up to $4 million every year.

Rovell noted that one plane will primarily be used as the main mode of transportation for road games, while the other plane will be kept as a backup. "It is not known how aggressively the team will seek to make up some of its costs by advertising the planes' availability".
