1-23-14

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York area’s airports are rolling out the welcome mat for visitors coming for the Super Bowl.

Newark, Teterboro, LaGuardia and JFK airports will have customer service representatives and volunteers on hand to point people in the right direction. Newark Liberty Airport also has “Fan Zones” that feature entertainment, concessions and giveaways.

Organizers estimate up to 400,000 people will travel to the area for the Super Bowl on Feb. 2 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates the airports, has instituted a reservation system for Teterboro, where hundreds of private aircraft are expected to come. At Morristown Municipal Airport, officials have set up space to store up to 200 private and corporate planes.
