We’re in the center of another red-hot football season (arguably, one of our favorite seasons in the South). At this time, it’s still anybody’s season and you’ll want to say you were there when your team had their breakthrough on the way to the College Football Playoff.
And, there’s nothing like a full game day experience in the South. But, travel time, traffic and the hassle of getting there gets in the way of cheering on our teams and getting the full game day experience. Get to the game and home again, without one bit of worry — except for when your team is down with seconds left.
Enter Southern Sky Aviation. We are the ultimate game day transportation service. For example, two years ago, when Alabama was heading into another National Championship, we had a client from Birmingham come to us with a group interested in chartering a flight to New Orleans for the College Football Playoff game at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The game was on New Year’s Day and all of the accommodations in New Orleans had taken advantage of the holiday and the game and required longer-than-normal minimum night stays. Our group looked at the total cost of being gone for four days/three nights and it just didn’t make sense. Then, they thought of charter.
We could deliver them to the game and home again in the same day. When they realized this, they were all in.
So, this crew of excited football fans left our hangar around 2 p.m. game day and were enjoying pre-game cocktails in ‘The Big Easy’ by 3 p.m. The best part, they’d tell you, was after the game, they were back home and sound asleep in their beds by 2 a.m. In the end, they spent less and had more fun.
Sound expensive? Charter can be, but by getting a group of eight to fill the plane and factoring in travel time, hotel rooms for three nights (the minimum) and food, shopping and other activities to fill the non-game days while in NOLA, it actually became less expensive per person to charter. And, the group arrived like rock stars ready to have a good time and cheer their team to victory.
It’s time to reimagine how you get to a game this season. Time is ticking and if you want to fly to any of the Conference Championships in early December or to the College Football Playoff — contact us today. Our planes are already booking up.
