The Argentinian football team is traveling on a special Airbus A330-200 of Aerolíneas Argentinas.
It was unveiled in October this year under Slogan "a team, a country, a dream".
The aircraft is carrying a special livery with Messi’s and two other players' images on the tail.
Argentina have won the 2022 World Cup after a thrilling penalty shoot-out victory against France in an astonishing final.
Gonzalo Montiel’s spot kick sealed a 4-2 win in the shoot-out for the South American side at Qatar’s 89,000-capacity Lusail Stadium on Sunday after the two teams were tied at 3-3 at the end of extra time.
Montiel’s decisive effort came after France’s Kingsley Coman had an attempt saved by Argentina goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez and Aurelien Tchouameni shot wide.
The roller-coaster contest was one of the all-time great finals and cemented Argentina captain Lionel Messi’s already glittering legacy, with the 35-year-old guiding his side to their first World Cup win since 1986 – and third overall.
