Airlines and Aviation
Airlines add additional flights to Phoenix from not only Boston and Seattle but also from other key travel destinations throughout the United States to accommodate fans flying to Super Bowl XLIX.
United Airlines has added 55 additional flights to transport football fans flying to Phoenix, Arizona, for the Super Bowl, which will be held at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, on Sunday 1 February 2015.
The additional flights will operate from the airline's key hubs in the following travel destinations …
- Chicago O'Hare International Airport in Illionis;
- Denver Internatinal Airport in Colorado;
- Houston Intercontinental Airport in Texas;
- Los Angeles International Airport in California;
- Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey;
- San Francisco International Airport in California.
United Airlines does not usually have regularly scheduled non-stop flights linking Seattle or New England with Phoenix.
To accommodate Seattle Seahawks fans living in the Pacific Northwest and New England Patriots fans in New England, however, the airline will fly nonstop from Seattle/Tacoma International Airport in Washington and Boston Logan International Airport in Massachussetts to Phoenix Sky Harbour International Airport.
The specially scheduled flights will operate from 29 January through 2 February 2015.
In order to accommodate the unsually large demand, the airline will operate Boeing 767 aircraft on several of its flights to and from Phoenix during the peak travel period.
The Boeing 767 is a long range, twin-engine aircraft that can carry up to 375 passengers. The airplane cruises at a speed of 528.79 mph.
Based At JKF International Airport in New York City, JetBlue Airways operates the most flights out of Boston Logan International Airport.
Because the budget air carrier's regularly scheduled flights between Boston Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport were fully booked, JetBlue Airways earlier announced the addition of a second nonstop flight on key travel dates between the two cities to accommodate football fans flying to and from the Super Bowl.
