The Huskies open the 2017 campaign on the road in New Jersey against Big-10 foe Rutgers University. The opener is scheduled for Friday Night on Labor Day Weekend, allowing for time before and after the game to experience New York.

In addition to the group events you’ve got a great selection of optional tours to experience while in New York. On Friday afternoon, we’ll board motor coaches for the 60 minute drive to New Jersey for the night game, arriving in plenty of time to tailgate on site.

Flights?

I am not offering any group flights to New York. There are no cost advantages to book group flights through the airlines, so I am recommending that you make independent plans with one of the carriers listed below. You have many options for non-stop flights to New York. Use miles or book directly with the airline using the following information:

Kayak.comGoing is a great website to visit to check out who has the best flight deals at the time. You can either book directly with Kayak or take the information you find to one of the airline sites listed below.

United-nonstop flights to Newark Airport->
Schedules and fares available now
Alaska-nonstop flights to Newark and JFK->
Schedules and fares available now
Delta-nonstop flights to JFK->
Schedules and fares available now
Jet Blue-Nonstop flights to JFK->
Schedules and fares available 8-10 months out

The carriers listed above offer nonstop flights to NY Area airports. You may find better fares with connecting service on one of these carriers.

Southwest Flights->
Schedules generally published 6 months out
American Airlines->
flights available now

Published fares are available as of 10/4/16 for under $400 on nonstop flights. Connecting flights are priced a little cheaper. It's hard to say if these fares will come down. Fares have been in the $350-$450 ballpark for a while now. Jet Blue, when they announce their schedules, may be a bit less expensive than the major airlines.

Airport Transportation

Uber and Lyft operate out of either Newark, Kennedy, and LaGuardia. Cost for these services is estimated at $60 each direction for up to 4 people in a car. Time is about 45 minutes from the airport to the hotel. Taxi is about the same price as Uber or Lyft. Super Shuttle offers shared ride service for approximately $35 per person. A full van of 10 passengers will cost about $150 each way if you book in advance.
