High rollers in private jets invade Houston for Super Bowl 51
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Wouldn't it be nice to fly in a private jet to the Super Bowl?
While it's a luxurious dream for most of us, the Houston Airport System is gearing up to welcome more than 1200 of these amazing jets to the area.
The migration to Houston has already begun for Super Bowl 51.
ABC13 reporter Foti Kallergis got an exclusive look at just some of these jets inside the Signature Flight support hangar at Hobby Airport this morning.
SkyEye was over the airport yesterday afternoon as jets made their way to a taxiway shut down exclusively for their use.
Air traffic is expected to pick up again at Hobby Airport today and especially tomorrow, with a few expected in on Super Bowl Sunday.
This morning, we'll see even more private jets coming in for Super Bowl LI.
The airports have required jets to RSVP for takeoff and landing times since air space will be really crowded.
Some jet operators told ABC13 these flights have been booked up to a year in advance.
Nose to tail, these aircraft are being lined up as they come in, with riders intent on having a good time here in Houston for the big game.
