Super Bowl 50: Private jets set for busiest day of the year

The Super Bowl Final is the peak demand event in the global private jet calendar, driving a huge number of additional flight movements to airports closest to the stadium. And this year’s final, on Sunday 7th February in California, is extra-special, being the 50th anniversary edition.

The flexibility and speed of private jet charter appeals to corporates, VIPs and fans – looking to get to the game fast, and in style. Last year’s Super Bowl Final saw 1000-1200 additional flights in the area, and this year industry predictions are for up to 2500 additional non-commercial aircraft movements.

Closest private jet airports for Super Bowl 50

The venue for the Super Bowl 50 Final is Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California. This will bring increased private jet traffic to both the San Francisco and San Jose areas, with the closest airport Mineta San Jose International Airport. Other nearby airports include:

  • San Francisco International
  • Oakland International
  • San Jose Reid Hillview Airport

  • Hayward Executive Airport

Due to the increased air traffic, the FAA has put into place several traffic management and safety initiatives for the weekend, that private jet customers need to be aware of.

While frequent private jet users are accustomed to a bespoke itinerary, which they can change at the last minute, for a big event like the Super Bowl our advice is to book as far ahead as possible, and to avoid changing your timings if at all possible.

Airports will be working to a PRP plan around the Super Bowl, which means all private jets will have designated arrival and departure times (slots), and if aircraft do not operate to their prescribed timings, it will be difficult to find a way in, or out.

Additionally, there will be no-fly zones around the venue, aircraft parking restrictions, and varied airport opening hours than usual. These provisions will be implemented in the area three to five days prior to the game.
