CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - A pilot shortage will prevent Hawkeye fans from taking a charter flight to Nashville.

Travel Leaders / Destinations Unlimited has partnered with Iowa Athletics to charter fans to various bowl destinations. This year, they’re still offering packages, but none include a charted flight.

Fans can still go to Nashville on their own or take a charted bus.

”We knew it would be different this year so there was a sigh of relief when it was Nashville,” said CEO of Travel Leaders / Destinations Unlimited. “We knew we could get there by bus.”
