Playing away games is set to become more comfy for Arsenal as the English Premier League side just added a new Airbus A380 plane to their range of flights. Arsenal splashed photos of the $404 million (about 195 billion naira in current exchange rates) ride on Instagram and on their official website.
Arsenal slipped to 5th position in the EPL table earlier this week but the acquisition of their branded private jet calls for celebration in the Gunners camp.
Here are some features of the private jet:
Capacity – 517 (long range edition)
Wingspan – 261 feet 8 inches
Length – 238 feet 6 inches
Engines – GP7200
Thrust – 70,000 pound
Flight range – 8,000 nautical miles

After League leaders Chelsea lost 2-0 at Tottenham, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger told journalists that the title race has become “open” for anyone to win.
