Super Bowl creating traffic jam for private jets

Charter a Private Jet for Super Bowl 51 in Houston February 2nd 2017

Forget about limos jamming the New Jersey Turnpike on Super Bowl Sunday. New Jersey’s priciest traffic jam could well be the private jets stacked up at nearby Teterboro Airport.

The airport, which serves small private jets, is only about 2 miles north of MetLife Stadium as the Lear Jet flies — making it ideal for jetsetters wanting to fly in and out for the big game.

That has forced the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which overseas the region’s four airports, to place limits on the number of private jet landings and take-offs in the days surrounding the game.

“You can’t just fly 300 planes out right after the game,” said Port Authority spokesman Ron Marsico.

The Federal Aviation Administration is expecting a surge of 1,200 extra private jet flights in the days surrounding the Feb. 2 Super Bowl. Most of those will be destined for Teterboro, as New York’s three major passenger airports have only limited private jet flights. The spike will stretch the capabilities of Teterboro, which only handles about 400 take-offs and landings on a typical day, and has parking spots for about 600 planes.
