Atlanta traffic is a headache on a regular daily basis.  Now that we are adding one of the biggest events in the world to our calendar, traffic will be no less than a nightmare.  Therefore, the Super Bowl Host Committee and all the City transportation partners want to be of service with these travel tips.

Flight prices vary with airlines and how early/late people book their flight.  Understand that the highest volume of flights coming into Atlanta will be Thursday, 1/31/19 and Friday, 2/1/19 and of course the highest volume of flights leaving Atlanta will be Monday, 2/4/19.
