(BLOOMINGTON) - The Monroe County Airport is getting ready for extra airplane traffic when the city hosts the Super Bowl on Feb. 5.

The Monroe County Board of Aviation Commissioners will charge $75 a day for parking planes at the airport between Feb. 2 and Feb.6. Planes arriving on game day also will be charged a $75 landing fee.

The fee may be waived for customers who regularly use the airport and are not flying in specifically for the Super Bowl. The funds will help cover additional expenses, including extra costs to de-ice runways and to have air traffic controllers working more hours.

Airport Manager Bruce Payton says the airport will have the capacity to park up to 70 planes.
