Flying Your Jet to the Big Game this Weekend?
Super Bowl 52 is happening this Sunday, February 4, and like all past Super Bowl host cities, Minneapolis expects heavy traffic in and out of the area all weekend. Minneapolis-Saint Paul International (MSP) expects to see a record-day of travelers, up to 70,000, on February 5, the day after the Super Bowl.
If you have a private or business aircraft and would like to avoid the largest crowds at MSP, it’s recommended you use one of the executive airports in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul metro area. However, if you haven’t scheduled your flight already, you may want to hurry. Even these smaller airports are anticipating heavy traffic during the weekend, between 1,200 and 1,500 private and business aircraft. Other than MSP, the other two most trafficked airports will be Flying Cloud (FCM) and Anoka County-Blaine Airport (ANE). For more details about routing to either of these, click the links below.
And with such a large event planned, you’ll want to be sure to check the TFR centered around U.S. Bank Stadium and any additional NOTAMs created for the expected heavy air traffic before, after, and during game day. You can view current flight restrictions at tfr.faa.gov.
