BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - As the big game nears, more Auburn fans are flying to Glendale from Birmingham and more will fly Friday.
Delta, Southwest, and chartered planes added 21 additional flights to accommodate the huge number of Auburn fans going to the game.
"I have to have all my Auburn gear, lucky stuff, and all my shakers. So I've got it all packed," said Laurie Halvorson.
Auburn Senior Melinda Kun hugged her mother before going through security. She won a ticket to the game and her mother paid for her flight.
Kun said "It seems really unreal actually. It's like a once in a lifetime experience really excited."
Airport officials have put together a checklist for fans who are traveling to Glendale.
Here are a few of those things you can do to make your travel process is easier.
Remember, fans can print boarding passes from home up to 24 hours before the flight.
They're also asked to arrive 2 hours early at the airport, and make certain to pack smart and make sure whatever you're taking is TSA approved.
