For arrival and departure ramp reservations at an airport, contact your preferred FBO or Airport Authority for airports without FBO’s.

When you make your reservation, you will receive a reservation number.  Enter this number in the remarks section of your flight plan in and out bound.  Use your reservation time as your proposed departure time when you file your IFR flight plan out of the Minneapolis-St. Paul Metropolitan area.  File flight plans IAW published routes during the February 1st –6th time frame; see Special NOTAMs for TFR and special routing information. Operators participating in this reservation system will be handled as expeditiously as conditions permit, to best meet reservation times.

Parking is expected to be very limited at all surrounding airports in the Minneapolis-St. Paul Metropolitan area.

Operators without reservations should plan on extensive delays in and out of the area.


VFR PILOT CLARIFICATION:  The Super Bowl 52 reservation system is not being used for VFR air traffic reservations.  However, the airport may have more stringent requirements due to limited ramp space and resources.  Please contact Airport Authorities where you are based.
