When it comes to Super Bowl, it turns out that Taylor Swift’s biggest challenge won’t be getting to the game on time from Tokyo. Like us Swift, who has a concert in Japan on February 10, will have plenty of time to get to Las Vegas for the big game thanks to the magic of the international date.
Since getting to Las Vegas probably won’t be a problem for Swift, that means her biggest problem might be trying to park her plane. In what is possibly the biggest first world problem ever, all private jet parking spaces in Las Vegas are currently reserved..
There are four airports in the immediate Las Vegas area and those four airports have a combined total of 475 parking spaces, but each of those spaces is reserved as we prepare to head to Super Bowl week.
Harry Reid International Airport is the main hub for Las Vegas – if you’re traveling on a commercial flight to the Super Bowl, you’ll almost certainly land there. The city has several smaller executive airports, one in North Las Vegas and another in Henderson, but they are booked for Super Bowl weekend.
The problem for Swift is that the Super Bowl won’t be the only sporting event in town during the week of the big game. LIV Golf is holding a tournament at Las Vegas Country Club and the Saudi-backed golf tour has likely reserved several parking spaces for the event. The only advantage for Swift is that the tournament ends on Saturday and there’s a good chance that not everyone will want to stay for the Super Bowl, which means some spots could open up.
Assuming she flies directly from Tokyo after her February 10 concert, Swift is expected to arrive in Las Vegas on Saturday night following the conclusion of the LIV tournament, although that won’t guarantee her a spot.
Of course, we’re talking about Taylor Swift, so there’s a good chance someone will make something happen.
“Taylor Swift will definitely have a place in the NFL land, but not necessarily a place to park,” Giordano said.
That’s what’s known as a “drop-and-go” flight, and if that happens, Swift and her crew will be dropped off in Las Vegas, but the plane will have to fly to an airport outside of Las Vegas to park. He NFL works with the FAA and local authorities during Super Bowl week, so the league almost certainly has the power to find a landing spot for Swift, but an NFL spokesperson did not confirm any individual requests when the AP he asked her.
The most likely scenario here is that Swift’s private jet drops her off in Las Vegas and then heads to another parking spot. At that time, Swift will attend the game and then hang out with Travis Kelce after the Super Bowl, meaning she probably won’t need her plane again until she heads to Australia for her next concert. Swift has a tour date in Melbourne on February 16, so she’ll probably head to Australia on February 13, so, in theory, her plane could remain in Los Angeles or another airport until then.
