The San Carlos Airport is set to see increased activity when the ‘Burner Express’ — a series of chartered flights taking people to the annual Burning Man festival in Nevada — begins service this week.

Chartered flights between San Carlos Airport and Black Rock City Airport run from Thursday, Aug. 23, through Monday, Sept. 3. See the schedule of flights here.

Airport officials met with staff of the Burner Express to “emphasize the importance of using the quietest arrival and departure settings possible when operating into and out of the San Carlos Airport,” Airport Manager Gretchen Kelly said in a statement.

“We’re happy to be a small part of participants’ Burning Man experience but are mindful that their fun isn’t a burden to those on the ground,” Kelly said.

Also, parking vehicles overnight is prohibited at the airport, so visitors are encouraged to use taxi, Lyft, Uber or Caltrain to get to the airport.
