Private aviation executives say there are several factors regarding the number of private jets descending on the Big Game. Teams, venues, and even players have a role.
According to Argus TraqPak data dating back to 2013, Super Bowl XLVIII held at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, across the river from New York City, was the most popular for private jet users since it began tracking such things in 2013.
Some 2,187 private jets arrived to see the Seattle Seahawks blowout the Denver Broncos 43-to-9.
A close second was Super Bowl LIV in Miami, where Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs drew 1,946 private jets, beating the San Francisco 49ers.
