Tropic Ocean Airways Game Day Flight to Gainesville Gators

University of Florida Gator Fans enjoyed a round trip charter-style flight from Fort Lauderdale to Gainesville - and great day at the Football game!

Tropic Ocean Airways, a Fort Lauderdale-based airline, began offering Game Day flights from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International’s Sheltair to Gainesville Regional Airport. The route was started to meet the needs of Florida Gator fans living in South Florida that would like to enjoy the game for the day and save on drive time.

The convenient round-trip flights are charter-style at a per seat rate for up to nine guests. The flight time is approximately one hour and twenty minutes. The flight is set to arrive to the game two hours prior to kick-off in order to allow for tailgate time and will depart one hour after the game ends.

The route is operated by two highly skilled pilots in one of Tropic Ocean Airways' new Wheeled Cessna Grand Caravan Ex, featuring leather club seating and window views from every seat.

The airline offers guests free valet at Fort Lauderdale’s Sheltair terminal, access to Tropic Ocean Airways' exclusive departures lounge, and in-flight snacks and beverages.

The next flight will be to Jacksonville, FL instead of Gainesville, FL for the Gators vs Georgia game on October 31st. The remaining football schedule with flights to Gainesville are: November 7th vs Vanderbilt, November 21st vs Florida Atlantic, and November 28th vs Florida State.
