The upcoming Super Bowl has everyone excited and all psyched up. However, the traffic bottlenecks that are occurring in New Jersey, as the avid players and rabid fans head out for the main venue, are causing chaos on an unheard of level.

Those affluent few who book private jets to the Super Bowl are facing crowded airports. And what to say of those who are being conveyed by vehicular means. The venue is MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. Nearby is the Big Apple. As for the passes to the game, they begin at $500 and go all the way up to VIP seats which come for $2600. 

Meanwhile, for the pedestrians, a seasonal game spot in the stadium comes for $110 which is still comparatively reasonable fare. The buildup of people, transportation and activity level has really converted New Jersey into a hot and happening place. 

The FAA has assigned more than a thousand private and chartered flights to the area. Three airports are being reserved for greeting arrivals for the game. The space for aircrafts though is getting smaller and smaller. And this is causing problems. It is indeed a hectic schedule that air traffic controllers and other airport officials will have to work around.  

Meanwhile, Warren Buffet’s NetJets are being employed for similar purposes. There are close to about 200 such planes that have been booked for the Super Bowl. And as for the traffic conditions they are deteriorating with each passing second.
