ARSENAL jetted to Dubai on a customised jet – branded with pictures of their stars.
Gunners boss Unai Emery is taking the members of his squad who are not on international duty for a warm-weather training camp.
Arsenal will also play local outfit Al Nasr Sports Club in a friendly and mark the official inauguration of Al Maktoum Stadium on March 26.
Lucas Torreira, Mesut Ozil, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alexandre Lacazette all feature on the plane’s livery.
But of those aces, only Ozil, who retired from Germany duty, and Frenchman Lacazette will be heading to the UAE.
Lacazette was pictured without his usual smile, perhaps as pal Aubameyang is with his Gabon team-mates.
Hector Bellerin was pictured next to loanee Denis Suarez without crutches.
The Spaniard has been ruled out for the rest of the season after having surgery on his knee.
Arsenal’s next competitive match comes against Newcastle on April 1, with a trip to Everton six days later.
