Dallas, Texas – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle Magazine
While Cowboys Stadium may have failed to break the Super Bowl attendance record, Million Air Dallas succeeded in a record number of flight arrivals and departures throughout the course of the weekend – Thursday, February 3 -Monday, February 7.
Record numbers of 195 arrivals and 106,000 total gallons of fuel pumped were partly a result of bizarre winter storms that dumped snow on the ill-equipped city, causing both Dallas Love Field and Dallas/Fort Worth Airports to shut down completely on Friday morning. Airline cancellations topped 20,000. The alternate airport of choice quickly became Addison Airport (ADS), home of Million Air Dallas, a mere eight miles to the north.
Thanks to the support of its sister locations, Million Air Dallas was equipped for the winter storm conditions and record traffic. Million Air Salt Lake provided a much-needed de-ice truck, which was a primary reason why aircraft chose to fly into ADS. Employee volunteers traveled from Houston, San Antonio and Salt Lake City to service the influx of customers.
Pilots who awaited their passengers were treated to a party of their own on Sunday night. Million Air Dallas enhanced its upstairs lounge with additional couches and big screen televisions donated by Rent-A-Center, and offered a catered meal from Cantino Laredo, sponsored by AVFUEL.
Million Air Dallas also set up an official NFL store where arriving and departing passengers conveniently purchased souvenir Super Bowl items.
