Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are giving “The Departed” a whole new meaning.

The longtime best friends jetted off together Sunday instead of Affleck honeymooning with Jennifer Lopez after the couple’s second wedding.

Affleck, 50, and Damon, 51, were spotted piling into a private jet with the “Argo” star’s three children at an airport in Georgia.

Affleck looked exhausted following the three-day wedding celebration as he loaded his friends and family onto the aircraft.

The “Gone Girl” star rocked a scraggly beard and was dressed casually in jeans and a T-shirt. Meanwhile, his “Good Will Hunting” co-star tried to keep a low profile, wearing black pants, a navy T-shirt, a black baseball hat and a backpack.

Damon was also joined by his wife, Luciana Barroso, with whom he flew into Georgia last week.

Affleck’s kids, Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10, were also dressed in cozy clothing for the flight. He shares the trio with ex-wife Jennifer Garner, who did not attend Bennifer 2.0’s nuptials due to a reported scheduling conflict.

Lopez, 53, and Affleck, who legally married in Las Vegas last month, said “I do” for the second time Saturday with a lavish, all-white wedding.

The ceremony was held at the groom’s estate in Riceboro, Ga., with guests including Damon, Jimmy Kimmel, talent agent Patrick Whitesell, Australian model Pia Miller and “Jay and Silent Bob” stars Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes.

Affleck’s younger brother, Casey Affleck, did not attend the wedding because he apparently had to take his son Atticus, 14, to soccer practice.

Ben and the “Let’s Get Loud” singer closed out their wedding weekend with an intimate brunch Sunday.

It is unclear whether the newlyweds have another honeymoon in the works, as they already enjoyed a romantic trip to Paris after their secret Sin City nuptials.

The pair met in 2001 on set of their maligned movie “Gigli” while Lopez was married to her second husband, Cris Judd. Shortly after she and Judd separated in 2002, J.Lo started dating Ben, and he even proposed to the “Marry Me” star that year.

They ended up calling off their engagement in 2004 and marrying other people: Ben wed Garner, and Lopez tied the knot with Marc Anthony, with whom she shares twins Max and Emme, 14. But when things didn’t work out with their respective spouses, the couple rekindled their relationship in 2021.

Affleck proposed for the second time in April — and this time they finally made it down the aisle.
