Airlines Add Flights to Phoenix for Super Bowl

If you are heading to Phoenix for The Big Game on Sunday, Feb. 1 better get a move on, despite the fact that there will be more flights than ever. One more thing: The airlines know these Super Bowl flights will sell out so they will be expensive. We’re seeing some round-trips from Boston in the $1,500-$1,600 range and Seattle flights as high as $2,000.

Here are the latest additions. Some have sold out, but more may be added:

Southwest

The airline announced today it is adding more non-stop flights and connecting flights as follows:

  • Boston – Phoenix
  • Manchester, New Hampshire – Phoenix
  • Seattle – Phoenix

Note: These extra flights will only be available from Thursday, Jan. 29 and Monday, Feb. 2.

Alaska

The airline is adding two non-stops between Seattle and Phoenix between Jan. 29 and Feb. 2. UPDATE: According to media reports, these flights are now sold out but you can still win a couple of round-trip flights plus hotel in a contest sponsored by Russell Wilson, Alaska’s “Chief Foot Officer” who moonlights as the Seahawk’s quarterback.

JetBlue

The airline says it’s adding another non-stop between Boston and Phoenix on Jan. 30 and Feb. 2. UPDATE: Whoops, the Monday flight is already sold out so they’re adding another. Hurry.
