An Argentine company has made a plane customised for the 31-year-old and his family which includes a kitchen, two bathrooms and 16 seats that can be folded to make eight beds.
On the exterior, it has been branded with his signature number 10 on the tail, so anyone who sees it will know the Argentina icon has landed.
It even has the names of the Argentina icon, his wife, Antonella, and their three children, Thiago, Ciro and Mateo, written on the steps.
Although Messi has not bought the plane, it has been leased to him by the company, who will be hoping to turn it into a smart business venture by attracting future wealthy rentors who are curious to travel in the plane that carried one of the world's best.
Messi showed at the weekend that he is still flying high at the top of the game with two free-kick goals and an assist in his side's 4-0 win over Espanyol.
Not only was it the first time he has scored from two set pieces in a single match, he became the first player in La Liga history to score 10 or more goals in 13 straight seasons.
He is now on 17 goals and 10 assists from 17 appearances in all competitions this season, helping Barca to a three-point lead at the top of La Liga and through to the knockout round of the Champions League.
