NEW ORLEANS, Jan.10, 2013 – Hawthorne Global Aviation Services today announced its Big Easy “Touchdown to Touchdown” VIP Package -- a personalized Super Bowl private jet service for those traveling to its New Orleans FBO for Super Bowl XLVII. From touchdown at the Lakefront Airport to the last touchdown scored at the Super Bowl, travelers will enjoy the newly renovated Hawthorne FBO offering first class private jet facilities, more than 50,000 square feet of hangar space, and a spacious two-story lobby/executive passenger lounge. For Super Bowl travelers who don’t want to be caught offsides, Lakefront Airport (KNEW) is the most convenient airport to downtown New Orleans and the Superdome, more than 20 minutes closer than Louis Armstrong Airport (KMSY).
For Super Bowl XLVII, the Hawthorne FBO scores big with its standard of highly personalized service, including expanded concierge amenities, such as hotel accommodations, local dining arrangements, complete ground transportation and more. Hawthorne is also hosting a special Super Bowl XLVII party for flight crews, featuring delicious New Orleans food, including gourmet poboys and other local cuisine. And there is a reservation system in place right now to offer flight crews peace of mind that everything will be in order upon their arrival in February.
“Our team is ready to welcome business aviation travelers at our FBO facility for New Orleans’ 10th Super Bowl,” said Jay Taffet, General Manager of the Lakefront FBO. “Everyone is a VIP at Hawthorne and we look forward to sharing our Southern hospitality and assisting fans with their travel plans to the Big Easy. We also have the most ramp and hangar space of any FBO on the field to accommodate the increase in jet traffic expected for the event.”
Hawthorne Global Aviation Services, a South Carolina-based company with an 80-year heritage in aviation, purchased a controlling interest in the AeroPremier facility at New Orleans Lakefront Airport in July 2012, and has rebranded it as a Hawthorne property. The Lakefront facility is part of the growing network of Hawthorne FBO’s throughout the United States.
The Lakefront FBO features the best in private aviation services and amenities including an atrium-style, arrivals lobby, state-of-the-art flight planning, private pilot lounges and sleep rooms. It also features an upscale conference room with stunning views of the airports, a full-service catering kitchen, multiple aircrew bathrooms and showers along with a full portfolio of concierge and hospitality services.
