A commercial plane marked with the logo and colors of the Boston Celtics team landed this on June 4th at the Gregorio Luperón International Airport in Puerto Plata.
It is a tribute from the airline Jetblue to the team in which Al Horford plays, the first Dominican player to participate in an NBA final.
The aircraft traveled from Boston, United States, to Puerto Plata, the city where the Dominican basketball player is from.
The Boston-Puerto Plata route was established in May this year to promote tourism. It is estimated that some 1,300 passengers per month will be mobilized.
The Dominican Al Horford, in addition to the merits for his performance, which was key to the victory of the Boston Celtics in the first game of the NBA Final, entered history by becoming the oldest player with six triples in the final part of the championship.
Plus, with his sixth 3-pointer, he set the record for the most by a player in his Finals debut, per @EliasSports stats, posted on ESPN networks.
The second game of the final between the Celtics and the Golden State Warriors is scheduled for June 5th.
