For Super Bowl week, New Jersey's Teterboro Airport is raising what might be considered a red-velvet rope around its airspace, requiring more than 1,000 private jets to vie for reserved spots just a few miles of MetLife Stadium.
"Teterboro will be the crown jewel of where everyone wants to go," said Jeff Trance, the senior vice president of Air Partner (Private Jets North America,) which has Super Bowl packages from Denver starting at $36,000 and from Seattle for $64,000.
"It's already one of the most complicated air spaces in the country," he said, and Super Bowl week will be exacerbated by an extra 1,200 planes and the possibility of severe weather delays. "If it's a rainy, snowy day, it's going to be a mess."

In addition, the Federal Aviation Administration has imposed a series of no-fly zones Feb. 2 that will shut down air traffic within an eight-mile radius of the stadium from about 4 p.m. until one hour after the game ends.
Teterboro is in the game-day no-fly zone. Newark Liberty International Airport is just outside it and will not be affected, an FAA spokesman told CNBC.
Planes arriving at Teterboro, Newark and Kennedy International from Jan. 29 through Feb. 3 will also need reservations and must pay an extra $250 to defray extra Super Bowl costs.
Teterboro has only about 600 reservations for landing and plane parking spaces; all others will get "drop-and-go" access and will need to find parking at another air field, said Ron Marsico, spokesman for the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, which operates Teterboro.
