Royals World Series run leads to flood of private jet traffic at KC airport

The Kansas City Royals’ two home games in the World Series brought much more air traffic than normal to Kansas City’s airports. On Tuesday, there were more than 300 takeoffs and landings at the Charles B. Wheeler Downtown Airport, which is about 125 more takeoffs and landings than usual.

A spokesman for the Kansas City Aviation Department said about 70 jets are situated at the airport and he estimates most of the aircraft are here for the World Series.

The Royals lost to the Giants on Monday and won Tuesday at Kaufman Stadium, and the series now goes to San Francisco, with game three on Friday.
