Due to the large volume of traffic in the Minneapolis area for the Ryder Cup, a traffic management initiative has been put in place for the departure traffic beginning Sunday, October 2nd at 3 pm through Monday, October 3rd at noon. This initiative will help keep a safe and efficient flow of traffic. Jet and Turboprop aircraft departing from the affected satellite airports climbing above 10,000msl are expected to be filed on one of the following routes:

ANE Departures:
Traffic departing to western destinations: ANE DARWIN SIX…(then as filed)
Traffic departing to southern destinations: ANE ORKSY Nine…(then as filed)
Traffic departing to eastern destinations: ANE GEP HYR…(then as filed)
