The Philadelphia International Airport is rolling out the red carpet for Pope Francis' arrival Saturday morning... literally.

The airport's Twitter account posted a sneak peek of the pope's arrival Friday afternoon, saying "Now, we just need a plane and #PopeFrancis! This is such an exciting time for Philadelphia! #PopeInPhilly."

The red carpet is provided locally by Langhorne Carpet Company in Bucks County Pennsylvania. It is 9 feet wide and 75 feet long, and has a gold border.

In total, the carpet company made three carpets for the pontiff's travels throughout the week.
