Drake is lending his $185 million plane to another NBA team

Sep 30 2019, 7:21 pm

Air Drake will take flight for an NBA team this week, but it won’t be the NBA champion Toronto Raptors.

While the Raptors will soon fly to Japan for two games next week, it will be the Sacramento Kings that ride in style on the Toronto hip hop artist’s personal plane. The Kings will fly Drake’s $185 million jet to Mumbai for a pair of preseason games in India against the Indiana Pacers on Friday and Saturday.

The flight from Sacramento to Mumbai will take about 18 hours.

“It’s definitely a cool plane from the outside in. It’s dope,” Kings point guard De’Aaron Fox told reporters. “If ya’ll haven’t seen the inside of the plane, ya’ll gotta see it.”

Unveiled publicly for the first time in May, Air Drake is a modified Boeing 767 cargo plane emblazoned with the OVO owl symbol on the outside and luxurious furnishings inside.

The Kings will feel like royalty on the aircraft that features a number of luxury sofas, plush leather recliners, as well as multiple bedrooms, a sprawling cabin area, and a massive flat-screen TV.

Finishing up the design of the interior are shiny hardwood fixtures, wall to wall carpeting, and golden walls.

All it will be missing, apparently, is wifi.
