Travel 'Game-Changer' for Sports Mega-Fans

How far are you willing to go to support your team and get your professional sports fix? Do you plan your free time around your team's schedule, paint your face, wear your team's jersey, or drive crazy distances to see the game live?

There are a lot of ways to support your team, but we've found the ultimate mega-fan travel experience.

Chicago-based Big Game Air provides same-day round-trip travel on private jets to major sporting events across the USA.

Its tarmac-to-stadium transfers and same-day returns mean no luggage, no hassle, no parking, no hotels, just a day rather than an extended long weekend of navigating crowds, and all the adrenaline of being at the game – plus all the perks of private aviation.

Like many innovations, the idea arose to solve a problem: one of the company founders didn't want to miss a big game – but also didn't want to leave his wife and newborn overnight. With help from his co-founder, they put their aviation and hospitality backgrounds to work, roped in some buddies, booked a private jet, left in the morning for the game… and arrived home 12 hours later - with a new luxury sports travel business plan.

Pardon the pun, but we think this is a 'game changer' for sports experiences and sports travel.

If you can get yourself a game ticket, they can get you there in style.

  • Fans can purchase individual seats on 8-30 seat flights scheduled to the highest-demand games throughout the year - up to 24 hours in advance of the game date. (So if you score a last-minute ticket, you can still make the game).
  • There are no membership fees required (unlike some other private jet programs).
  • Ground transportation is included to and from the sporting event.
  • You'll have all the amenities and conveniences of private air travel, plus
  • Group and charter options, including:
  • Ways to really celebrate a corporate team win, a bachelor party, or any other group event with add-on perks including custom jet hangar parties, tailgate parties in the sporting destination, professional athlete- or celebrity-hosted flights and premium onboard catering.

In its first year, Big Game Air flights flies from Chicago, New York, Columbus, and Detroit; in 2018, the company adds Dallas and Atlanta as originating cities; and in 2019, you can depart from Los Angeles and San Francisco to join your team's big day.

Flights are already scheduled to marquee sports events like the SuperBowl and major NFL games, College Football championships, NHL, the Masters Tournament, the Kentucky Derby, as well as major game dates on the calendar that run the gamut of team sport in the USA.

The company subcontracts a fleet of private jets, making the ultimate game day trip more affordable than other private options. Flights still cost in the $1200 – 2200 USD range for a round trip, so it's not the cheapest way to get to the game. (But it still might be less expensive than your seats at center field).

For time-pressed executives and groups of friends willing to splash out on their sports adventure, Big Game Air seems like a big win for big fans on game day.

The Holy Birgitta Monastery, also known as the Pirita convent, is a consecrated place for Scandinavian female saints and a national landmark of 16th century catacombs and ruins. The convent is a solemn but beautiful and introspective holy space, self-defined as ecumenical, perfect for visitors seeking quietude and contemplation.

The St. Bridget’s Convent in Tallinn convent has a deep history dating back 500 years. The convent and guesthouse are situated only 7km from medieval old town, just a few hundred meters from the sandy beach of the Baltic Sea, easily accessible to the town center by public transport. They are also connected by a scenic walking road built along the sea, with views to the old town and the Tallinn bay.

The convent ruins are part of a picturesque park, with a museum opened year around. Regular admission is only 2 Euros.

During the summers the convent hosts many concerts and cultural activities within the church. Every August a week-long Birgitta festival with operas and various concerts takes place within the walls of the old church, peaking with Convent Day on August 15. The day includes concerts, activities and events for children and adults, all free of charge.

The Bridgettine sisters have a long standing tradition of offering lodgings and welcoming guests at their convent’s guesthouses. Though they are a Catholic order, all religious backgrounds are welcome. The modern guesthouse of the convent is located just next to the medieval ruins of the majestic Bridgettine convent.

Prices for rooms per single, double, triple or 4 persons are respectively 34, 47, 62, 80 Euros ($49, $67, $89, $114 USD). Payment should be made in cash. Price includes breakfast and parking; lunch and dinner are available upon request. Every room has a separate shower, Internet connection, phone. All guests have access to the multi-lingual library, computer facilities, conference room and TV-room.

The money earned from the guesthouse goes towards various social projects.
