WE HEARD YOU, NEW ENGLAND FANS!  SUPER EXTRA SECTIONS BETWEEN PROVIDENCE AND INDIANAPOLIS NOW AVAILABLE FOR SUPER GAME WEEKEND! 

After I blogged yesterday about our Super Extra Sections to/from Indianapolis, lots of you very rightly corrected our shocking lack of knowledge about the New England Patriots and which airport is closer to them.  And here’s our response!  Now available for sale—extra service between T. F. Green Airport in Providence and Indianapolis for the Friday before the big game (February 3rd) and the Monday after (February 6th).   Enjoy, folks….and thanks for the heads-ups!

PICTURE IT.  Indianapolis.  Sunday, February 5th, 2012.  A Very Large Football Game being played at Lucas Oil Stadium.  And YOU….ARE….THERE.  But to attend the game and root for either the Patriots or the Giants—you have to score tickets.  We can’t help you with tickets to the game itself, but we can help you get tickets to fly to and from Indianapolis!  We’re loading in extra sections on both Southwest and AirTran from both Boston and Long Island MacArthur Airport to/from Indianapolis to accommodate Big Game demand, and they’ll shortly be available for sale.  We’re adding:

Friday, February 3rd:

Southwest: extra sections Boston-Indianapolis and Long Island MacArthur Airport-Indianapolis

AirTran: extra section Boston-Indianapolis

Monday, February 6th:

Southwest: extra sections Indianapolis-Boston and Indianapolis-Long Island MacArthur Airport

AirTran: extra sections Indianapolis-Boston and Indianapolis-Atlanta

Book these extra sections FAST because if history is any indication, our BIG GAME extra sections will sell out quickly!  And if you are fortunate enough to go enjoy the huge party that will be going on in Indianapolis that weekend, do what I’d do—eat well, party hard, and yell loud!  Hopefully the weather will be better than it was in Texas last year.  (snicker!)  Or, if you’ll be enjoying the festivities with friends and family at home…..do the same thing!  Have a good week, everyone.

Just wondering if you guys were planning on adding any PVD or MHT to IND flights. As you may know, Patriots fans are from all over New England, and I'm sure you could fill a plane or 2 from both cities!

Why not Providence (PVD)? Thats the airport the patriots use and thats the airport closest to the stadium and fan base. It'd make mroe sense to have the flights from there!

How about a few extra flights out of MHT?

A "super" big thank you to Southwest for adding extra sections to and from PVD and IND. Flights operate 2/3 & 2/6.

And NH VT and ME? Last time I checked you still had a few flights out of Manchester NH???

MHT? any LUV left for them?

they have added extra sections from both PVD and BDL. Too bad SW has come to think of PVD after the fact of adding BOS. I guess I know where the pecking order begins now with SW! SW does not always do their homework. More than 50% of season ticket holders are from Rhode Island and SE Mass.
New Arrival
Read in the paper that SW had x amount of profit last year...great for them. maybe they will give us a few deals on traveling to Albany, NY... why is airfare to Albany always so expensive?

Why not add extra sections from LGA on Saturday? I thought the airport is not controlled one day a week - Saturdays.

Too late now but did you ever think about flights from Newark (EWR), it being your closest airport to Giants Stadium and all. I know you have limited slots in Newark but you could have added an additonal 1 stop same plane service flight to IND??
