NBAA Gives Super Bowl Operations High Marks
The National Business Aviation Association has commended FAA officials for coordinating with aviation-industry stakeholders to ensure that Super Bowl-related flights on February 6 encountered a minimum of delays.

Also important: the decision not to use slot restrictions for aircraft flying into and out of the Indianapolis area, as these can lead to delays when jets do not land exactly at their scheduled times.
