TRANSPORTATION & HOTEL ACCOMODATIONS

Hill Aircraft and Fulton County Airport (FTY) is located a short 10-miles from Mercedes Benz Stadium, the venue for Super Bowl 53. Being the closest proximity to all other executive airports in the Atlanta area, there are a number of convenient transportation options we accommodate, including Hertz or Enterprise rental (on-site), chauffer service, coach vans, UBER, LYFT, and taxi. Due to increased demand that week, we recommend transportation reservations be made at least 2-weeks in advance if booking through Hill Aircraft.

Hotel rooms in the Atlanta area are expected to reach maximum occupancy, especially in the immediate downtown and surrounding areas. We recommend making your reservations at the earliest opportunity possible. Hill Aircraft will not be able to guarantee hotel room availability depending on the timeframe of your reservation request and the proximity to downtown Atlanta. Confirmation will be provided by our team once hotel accommodations are secured.

SPECIAL AIR TRAFFIC PROCEDURES

Due to the increased amount of air traffic coming to Atlanta, the FAA has instituted special air traffic management procedures to “minimize air traffic delays and enhance safety” for all surrounding airports. Information specific to your trip into KFTY can be found below.

For real-time updates to this information, please check NOTAMS or https://superbowl.faa.gov/.

2019 SUPERBOWL LIII
January 30 – February 5, 2019
SPECIAL AIR TRAFFIC PROCEDURES
Fulton County Airport – Brown Field (KFTY) | Atlanta, GA

TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT INITIATIVES

Expect Traffic Management initiatives including but not limited to, reroute, miles-in-trail, altitude restriction, ground stop, and ground delay programs.

When a Ground Delay Program (GDP) is required, aircraft must depart within 5 minutes of their assigned Expect Departure Clearance Time (EDCT). If unable, pilots must advise ATC and request a new EDCT assignment.

Traffic management initiatives are designed to provide equitable access to airports and airspace. To maintain program integrity and minimize delays, airborne changes of destination to Atlanta Area airports may not be accepted, except in emergency situations.

FLIGHT PLANS/IFR PICK UP

File flight plans at least 6 hours, but not more than 22 hours, prior to proposed time of departure. Early flight plan submission may minimize your assigned delay during Traffic Management initiatives.

Duplicate flight plans (same call sign/multiple times) are subject to removal from the system and may result in increased delay for your flight.

VFR aircraft requesting airborne IFR clearance/activation may encounter significant reroutes and/or delays. IFR flight plan pick up/activation and airborne changes of destination to Atlanta Area airports will not be accepted within 100NM of ATL, except in an emergency.

TEMPORARY FLIGHT RESTRICTION

A Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) will be in effect for this event on Sunday, February 3 from 1630 – 2330. Click FDC NOTAM for details.
