Wheels Up has launched its private “Same Day Game Day” shuttle, offering Wheels Up members the opportunity to purchase seats on flights to and from select top college football games, the company said.
The shuttle flights will be scheduled to arrive two hours before kickoff and return one hour after the game ends. Passenger transportation for the “Same Day Game Day” shuttle flights will be provided by Wheels Up flight partner, Gama Aviation, aboard the Wheels Up King Air 350i.
The shuttle schedule is expected to kick-off on September 10 for the Louisville vs. Syracuse game (New York to Syracuse) and will be followed by a number other games, including: Georgia vs. Ole Miss (Atlanta to Oxford) 9/24, Wisconsin vs. Michigan (New York to Ann Arbor) 10/1, Tennessee vs. Georgia (Nashville to Athens) 10/1, Clemson vs. Florida St. (Atlanta to Tallahassee) 10/29, Yale vs. Harvard (New York to Boston) 11/19, Michigan vs. Ohio State (New York to Columbus) 11/26.
More shuttles are planned throughout the season. Wheels Up members can propose a “shared flight” to any college football game through the Wheels Up member app and split the cost of travel with other members traveling to and/or from the game.
