How to find cheap plane tickets to Arizona

Booking a hotel room for Super Bowl 2023 is difficult — and pricey — already but fans hoping to come to Arizona for the big game are not having as hard a time finding flights right now.

Of course, it’s not known yet which teams will be playing on Feb. 12 at State Farm Stadium in Glendale. But airlines and Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport are prepping for the expected spike in air travel.

American Airlines aimed to get ahead of the demand by increasing the number of flights to and from Phoenix from Feb. 9-14, citing the Super Bowl as well as the WM Phoenix Open golf tournament happening in Scottsdale the same week.

But as always, the longer travelers wait to book their flights, the greater the chances their preferred itineraries will skyrocket in price or sell out. (Pro tip: Reserve your rental car well in advance too.)
