• Indianapolis International Airport braces for a busy post Super Bowl dash

    February 06, 2012 No comments

    Indianapolis International Airport will be busy today as thousands who put on and watched the Super Bowl leave Indianapolis.

    Estimates figure 24,000 outbound passengers will leave today, which is nearly 15,000 higher than a typical Monday.

    Those people will help fill 178 commercial departures versus the usual 134.

    The numbers are not exact since some people will leave on charters and not pass through the terminal for commercial flights.

    The peak hours were expected to be from 6 through 8 this morning as more than 6,000 passengers will board planes in three hours.

    The rest of the day figures to be steady at about 1,000 passengers per hour.

    Airport staffers advise passengers arrive three hours before their flight because of the heavy volume of departures.
