The Masters, Augusta by Private Jet
In just over two weeks, the sporting attention of the world will shift to Augusta, where the worlds best golf players will be looking forward to the inaugural major of the year at The Masters.
The competition is one of the most highly regarded in golf, and regularly attracts 40,000 – 50,000 spectators (‘patrons’) during the week, with millions more watching live on television across the world. Being the first major of the year, it is always eagerly anticipated, and provides a good opportunity to see the early form of the players involved.
Unusually, The Masters is always held at the same venue – Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. Inevitably, there is a huge surge in demand for travel to and from the area, with a dramatic increase in the volume of private jet demand in addition to commercial airlines operating temporary routes to the two regional airports for the duration of the competition (http://chronicle.augusta.com/news/metro/2015-03-17/augusta-regional-doubles-parking-aircraft-during-masters).
As a result, private jet charter to The Masters has always been a popular method of transport to the event for those looking to avoid the worst of the traffic and queues. There are two regional airports that are able to service private jets travelling to Augusta:
Augusta Regional Airport is the principal airport and is 10km’s south of Augusta National, and
Daniel Field, for lighter aircraft, which is located 2km’s to the south east of the golf course
Augusta Regional Airport witnesses the bulk of this extra traffic, but is equipped to handle all types of private jet traffic from light jets to long range jets.
