Patriots To Use “Air Kraft” To Transport New England Healthcare Workers To Super Bowl LVAdam Hagy - USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots may not be going to Super Bowl LV in Tampa, but one of their now-famous planes will be for a good cause.

On Tuesday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter shared a report that one of the Patriots two “Air Kraft’s” will transport 76 vaccinated healthcare workers representing all six New England states to Florida for the big game.

According to a Patriots press release, the 76 healthcare workers will be guests of the Kraft family and treated to an all-expenses paid trip to Super Bowl, including the round trip flight on “Air Kraft”.

“Last April, when our plane returned with masks from China, we never could have imagined the devastation this pandemic would cause, nor could we have dreamed of the heroic stories and achievements that have come to be as a result, especially the dedication of healthcare workers on the front lines and the creation of safe and effective vaccines,” said Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft in a statement.

“Ten months later, it’s an honor for us to celebrate these healthcare workers by giving them a well-deserved break for a day and an opportunity to enjoy the Super Bowl, a reality that is only made possible because of the vaccines. We hope that in doing so, others are also encouraged to get vaccinated as they are able. Once again, we want to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts to all of the healthcare heroes who have risked their well-being to ensure ours. They are truly superheroes to us.”

The 76 New England representatives will be among approximately 7,500 vaccinated health care workers from around the country as special guests of the NFL to “thank and honor them for their continued extraordinary service during the coronavirus pandemic”.
