How to be Part of the Most Exciting Week in American Baseball
Event-centered demand for large cabin jets continues into the autumn sports season with the conclusion of Major League Baseball in the United States and Canada. We have been fortunately well-positioned to deliver an unrivaled level of service and superior aircraft for groups traveling to these kinds of events worldwide. If you need a large cabin jet for this year’s World Series, here is some information you can use in your hunt for the perfect jet.
On-Demand Service for the Unknown
At the time of this writing, there is still over two months of baseball season to play before a venue for the World Series can be determined. This creates an opportunity for on-demand operators like us who can deliver in a short timeframe.
We have been involved with several popular events that require this kind of on-demand flexibility in years past. The World Series is played in an opportune window in mid-October when there is more flexibility with our fleet than during the busy summer months or the holiday season.
League Leaders and Likely Venues
While we cannot know for certain who will be in the running for this year’s World Series, there are strong contenders. This is an early idea of what cities are expected to handle the influx of business jets for World Series 2022.
New York Yankees (Yankee Stadium, NY)
It is no surprise that the Yankees once again find themselves contending for the top position within the American League. At 70-38 this far into the season, the team is looking good to be in the running come playoff time. Airports that best serve the New York area: Teterboro Airport (KTEB) in New Jersey and Westchester County Airport (KHPN) and John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York.
Houston Astros (Minute Maid Park, TX)
The Astros had their first taste of World Series magic in 2017 when they defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers four games to three. Currently they are tied with the New York Yankees at 70 wins in the 2022 season. Airports that serve the Houston metropolitan
area: Houston International (KIAH), Houston Executive Airport (KTME), and William P. Hobby Airport (KHOU).
Los Angeles Dodgers (Dodger Stadium, CA)
With a total of 75 wins in the 2022 season, Los Angeles has some of the strongest potential to host the 2022 World Series. The Dodgers last took the World Series during the truncated season due to the Covid-19 pandemic where they faced off against the Atlanta Braves. Airports in the Los Angeles area: Van Nuys Airport (KVNY), Hollywood Burbank Airport (KBUR), and Los Angeles International Airport (KLAX)
Avoid Curveballs. Communicate With Your Broker
Our number one recommendation for clients that would like access to a Gulfstream airframe for the World Series is to communicate your travel needs ahead of time. Even if you don’t know the destination city, you can still reserve your airframe’s departure.
We are extremely flexible to accommodate events that might alter venue, and brokers appreciate our ability to turn on a dime. Each journey is unique. That is why we encourage starting the booking process early so your broker can work closely with us to ensure you are well taken care of on game day.
