Super Bowl Boosts Phoenix Airport Rental Rates

Super Bowl Sunday is Feb. 1, and the pickup rates at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport — from the past two weeks — are up $60.98 and $53.93 from last year.

In the 32 weeks from May 16 to Dec. 12, 2014, this year was down from last year by an average of $2.13. Our surveys look at pickup rates for every day from 15 to 21 days out. Starting with the Dec. 19, 2014 rate survey, which pulled rates for pickup from Jan. 3 to Jan. 9, 2015, rates turned up dramatically from the previous year.

The table below provides an excellent picture of how the Super Bowl has affected Phoenix Airport rates.
