As per data from RadarBox, the aircraft is just over halfway across the Atlantic Ocean at the moment, following the football club’s pre-season abroad coming to an end.


The reason for the pre-season matches being in the New York area is due to the Premier League Summer Series, which is an eight-day competition that started on July 23.

Following the conclusion of their matches, they have come in third place in the competition and have headed back home to Newcastle.

N322SG is the Boeing 747-400 of Atlas Air that is operating this flight from New York’s Newark, as it has enough capacity to carry the players, training staff, as well as any cargo that needs to be transported across for the tournament.

As it stands, the aircraft is due to land at the airport at 2147 local time, where there will be a few days’ rest before playing Fiorentina at their home ground for the Sela Cup being held in Europe.

It is unclear whether any fans will be waiting for the team’s arrival at the airport, but the late arrival and the charter could result in there being private parking.

Atlas Air has operated multiple football charters like this before, having famously handled the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, and Liverpool. Newcastle United is now also on that list with Atlas Air.
