We have take off! Besiktas provided with team-coloured plane

Turkish Airlines have provided the Super Lig outfit with their very own team-coloured plane so that they can travel in style


Forget your supercars and multi-million pound yachts, Besiktas are about to take luxury travel to the next level.

The Super Lig outfit are known as the Black Eagles, and they will soon be taking to the sky in style courtesy of a remarkable gift from Turkish Airlines.

Only the best will do for a side currently sat joint-top of their domestic division and looking to make it back-to-back title successes in Turkey, so it makes perfect sense that they now boast their very own plane!

The team-coloured aircraft will be used for the first time on Wednesday when Besiktas make the trip to Italy for a Champions League clash with Napoli.

Senol Gunes’ side should arrive fully refreshed if their mode of transport is anything to go by, with the days of back-breaking journeys made by bus seemingly a thing of the past for modern day footballers.
