As Scottsdale Airport prepares for a busy few days as corporate, charter, fractional and private jets fly in to Arizona for Super Bowl LVII, officials there are urging travelers to have an appointment at the local airport.
Between Wednesday, Feb. 8, through Monday, Feb. 13, flights must have an advance reservation as Scottsdale Airport is expecting a significant influx of aircraft traffic during this busy time.
Reservations are managed by the airport’s Fixed Based Operators – Atlantic Aviation, Jet Aviation and Signature Flight Support – and are required. This will ensure a smooth and efficient process for airport guests, according to a press release.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to serve such a prestigious group of travelers and can’t wait to show off our state-of-the-art facilities and excellent customer service,” said Gary P. Mascaro, aviation director. “We are here to make your travel experience as seamless and enjoyable as possible. Our team is ready!”
In working with FAA air traffic personnel, Scottsdale Airport will have about 33 departure slots and three arrival slots per hour during the Prior Permission Request time period for Super Bowl, which starts 5 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 12, and goes until early evening on Monday, Feb. 13.
During the 2015 Super Bowl in Arizona, Scottsdale Airport had 1,189 operations through the Super Bowl weekend.
Scottsdale Airport has undergone major upgrades, especially since the 2015 Super Bowl in Arizona. An $11 million runway rehabilitation project and a $5 million project that created five additional aircraft bays for aircraft departures were recently completed.
