This is actually a pretty creative promotion – Delta Airlines is offering a free charter flight from New York City to Newark for hockey fans with tickets to Game 3 of the Rangers-Devils series Saturday at the Prudential Center.
The flight only lasts 17 minutes, though that doesn’t include security and all the other tedious stuff flying involves.
“It’s obviously a very unique flight,” Delta spokesperson Leslie Park said, as per CBSNewYork. “We thought it would be a great way to get some buzz going and get some Rangers fans really excited for the game on Saturday.”
Unfortunately for fans still hoping to take advantage of the offer, the sign-up period has already ended.
Fortunately, it’s a lot faster to drive.
