2013 Ncaa Tournament Charters

Mon Mar 18, 2013 3:22 pm

It is that time of the year when college basketball teams, band/cheerleaders, and alumni charter flights for the NCAA Basketball Tournament. Anyone know which schools are using which airlines for their charters? Also, if you see a charter pop up on your favorite flight tracking sites, please feel free to post here!

I believe a Miami Air 734 took the NC A&T Aggies from GSO to DAY this AM for the play-in game tomorrow night.

So it looks like one Sun Country 738 is spending a lot of time doing NCAA charters.

SCX8600 did Syracuse to SJC last night; then went back home to MSP. Now it is enroute to Ft Collins, presumably to pick up Colorado State on it's way to LEX. It then heads to COU to pick up Mizzou and head back to LEX.

I am really surprised these teams did not fly into the Downtown Airport because the Sprint Center is across I-70 from the airport. A 5 minute drive compaired to a 30 minute drive.

Doesn't make that big of difference really. They are going straight to the arena to play, so the advantage is gone. Plus MCI is set up for heavy metal, versus MKC which doesn't get it very often these days.

Also in the Kansas City bracket, I'd expect Kansas to drive, since its all of about 30 miles.

I reason I bring this up is all of the Big 12 teams (that flew a chartered aircraft) flew into the Downtown Airport. I am a "friend" on their Facebook page which showed 732, 734, and MD80 charters (along with some F/A-18s and a C-17). https://www.facebook.com/mkcairport

I am local to Kansas City and know when the teams land, they will take I-29 to HWY 169 right passed the Downtown Airport on their way to the Sprint Center. Besides, I wanted to see bigger planes out my loft overlooking the airport.

With limited exceptions (BED/BOS this year), NCAA charters tend to stick to main airports more than a lot of other sports charters. I don't know why.

There also seems to be a lot more commercial flying this year and a lot less use of tertiary airports. It appears that most of the Auburn Hills teams flew commercial to Detroit, and I can't find flights for several Philadelphia teams or for UCLA, which will be doing LAX-AUS, a route with a ton of service. In fact, with a few exceptions (e.g. Northwestern State), all of the missing charters above may be teams flying commercial.

One thing could be, these larger airports tend to have better services than most of the smaller airports. If a plane goes mechanical, its easier to work it at a major airport vice a GA FBO. Also depending on how the teams are loaded and unloaded, if they use a vacant gate, or gate that doesn't get used as much, its easier and quicker for the charter company to process the team through TSA. Much easier to use a set up designed for high traffic, than setting up folding tables in a FBO, wanding and hand searching the bags.

You're welcome. One (less obvious) interesting thing to do is to take a look at some of the old threads on charters to see how things have changed. It wasn't that long ago that well more than half of charters were handled by scheduled carriers. Now, Xtra, Miami Air International and Sun Country seem to be the biggest players.

It's interesting the SY, with a fleet as small as they have, have extra a/c to do these charters during the spring break season.

Until they went under, Champion Air was a huge player in NCAA sports charters. They usually had the contract for flying home the losers in the NCAA tounament

I am really suprised at the lack of flights G4 is doing this year. I only saw one in the rundown... for FGCU going RSW to PHL. Did G4 not bid or is it too busy with other work right now?

I guess that a.net hasn't kept up with the BSK change in IATA code from "GL" to "LL". Our site seems to still think that LL is Allegro Air.

Lest we forget about the other post-season basketball tournaments in progress, here's a unique charter flight from the NIT. BYU is playing at Southern Miss tonight in the NIT quarterfinals. The Salt Lake Tribune reports that BYU's team took a charter yesterday direct from PVU (Provo, UT) to PIB (Hattiesburg, MS). Two planes flew that route yesterday, a Falcon 900 (N72PX) in the afternoon and a Learjet 60 (N212JA) late at night. I'm assuming that the team was on the Falcon 900. The Tribune report further mentioned that the support staff took a commercial flight.
