We do roll out -- its maybe not red carpet -- but there is carpet thats rolled out, said Eric Lampert, NetJets vice-president of flight operations.The boost in private jet traffic for the Super Bowl is a sign of how the big game has increasingly become a VIP event, from the many celebrity parties to tickets running several thousand dollars.Starting Thursday, NetJets will have a temporary furnished lounge where customers can relax with complimentary food, drinks, television and Wi-Fi. They will also get a Super Bowl goody bag and admission to a party Saturday night in Scottsdale with Lady Antebellum as the headline entertainment.Dallas-based Flexjet has hired Press, a Phoenix-based food truck, to serve complimentary Italian street eats to passengers starting Thursday. The specialty menu will include mini sausage-bread-pudding muffins, caprese salad skewers and raspberry-filled bombolones, which are Italian doughnuts.These little details really matter, said Megan Wolf, Flexjets vice-president of customer experience.

Every flight will be scheduled in an orderly fashion to prevent air traffic control systems from getting overwhelmed, Gregor said.The FAA will add staffing and operating hours at air traffic control facilities as needed, he said.The Super Bowl is the grand finale in a week that includes the Waste Management Phoenix Open, a golf tournament in the Phoenix suburb of Scottsdale. Both events will have the Scottsdale Airport dealing with an expected 54 per cent increase in corporate jet traffic, meaning more than 520 additional aircraft.That was the increase seen when both events took place in Arizona in February 2008, airport spokeswoman Sarah Ferrara said.Ferrara, who was not employed by the airport in 2008, said she is looking forward to seeing two to three flights taking off every few minutes.I just hear the departures are going to be fantastic -- these beautiful jets departing one after another, Ferrara said.___Follow Terry Tang on Twitter at https://www.twitter.com/ttangAP Connor McDavid Jersey .
