NBAA Warns of Specific Arrival/Departure Procedures for Super Bowl-bound Aircraft

 - January 31, 2013, 2:45 PM

Super Bowl XLVII this Sunday will generate specific aircraft arrival and departure procedures at New Orleans Lakefront (NEW) associated with the non-movement areas through Monday, according to NBAA Air Traffic Services. “These procedures are necessary due to the significant number of aircraft expected at NEW,” NBAA said. Specifically, there is a “highly detailed” metering plan for all departures from NEW starting at 9 a.m. CST on Saturday and ending at 10 p.m. CST on Monday. This procedure is necessary to meter traffic off the non-movement areas to the runway departure queue, NBAA noted.
