Reservations are managed by the airport’s brick-and-mortar FBOs (Fixed Based Operators) — Atlantic Aviation, Jet Aviation and Signature Flight Support – and are required. This will ensure a smooth and efficient process for our guests.
Ms. Ferrara reports Scottsdale Airport officials working closely with the FAA to schedule flights in an orderly and efficient manner and provide a seamless travel experience.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to serve such a prestigious group of travelers and can’t wait to show off our state-of-the-art facilities and excellent customer service,” said Gary P. Mascaro, Scottsdale aviation director. “We are here to make your travel experience as seamless and enjoyable as possible. Our team is ready!”
In working with FAA air traffic personnel, Scottsdale Airport will have approximately 33 departure slots and three arrival slots per hour during the Prior Permission Request time period for Super Bowl, which starts 5 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 12, and goes until early evening on Monday, Feb. 13.
During the 2015 Super Bowl in Arizona, Scottsdale Airport had 1,189 operations through the Super Bowl weekend, according to a press release.
Scottsdale Airport has undergone major upgrades, especially since the 2015 Super Bowl in Arizona. An $11 million runway rehabilitation project and a $5 million project that created five additional aircraft bays for aircraft departures were recently completed, the release states.
