Chartered trips arranged for Vikings-Packers game


Football fans have a couple options for group transportation to Lambeau field Sunday for the Vikings-Packers playoff game.

FOX9 reports Sun Country Airlines is offering a special charter flight that departs from Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport Saturday at 2:30 p.m. and arrives at Austin Straubel Airport at 3:30 p.m.

The flight is scheduled to take off from Green Bay just before midnight and land back in Minneapolis around 1 a.m.

A Coach package costs $299 round trip and a First Class package costs $499 round trip. This also includes transportation between the airport in Green Bay and Lambeau, but not a ticket to the game.

Creative Charters has also arranged a round-trip motorcoach trip between Lake Elmo and Lambeau, FOX9 says. The cost ranges from $210 to $299 and includes a ticket to the game. If you already have a ticket, it's $110 to catch a ride.

If you are looking to spend the night, WCCO reports hotels are filling up fast and rates run about $250 per night. The television station says round-trip flights on Delta leaving Friday or Saturday range between $900 to $1,300 per person.
