The Super Bowl and Private Jets
General Aviation area in New Orleans for the 2013 Super Bowl
The Super Bowl brings in lots of money for airports too!
Every year the airports surrounding the city hosting the Super Bowl prepare for hundreds of private aircraft to visit their airfields. This means big money for the companies providing services. Anything from fuel to parking and even the landing fees. With each one of these jets buying thousands of dollars worth of fuel, the airports start planning and preparing long in advance to please their wealthy customers. In 2004 "Million Air" at William P. Hobby Airport had to shut down a runway in order to accommodate the 1000+ private aircraft attending the Super Bowl. That is unlikely to happen in 2017 as "Million Air" is in the middle of some renovations to house the crowd for Super Bowl LI.
