This is how Taylor Swift could attend Super Bowl as she faces extremely awkward situation

We all like to show up for our loved ones - Taylor Swift included.

The 'Cruel Summer' hitmaker has been dating Kansas City Chiefs star Travis Kelce since last year and, in the wake of their blossoming romance, has been spotted at several of his football games.

Swift was even there last night (January 28) to celebrate with her beau when his team secured their spot in this year's Super Bowl.

The Chiefs are set to go up against the San Francisco 49ers on February 11 in what's likely to be a star-studded affair.

And while Swift has frequently been present at Kelce's games, there's a good chance she won't be able to make it for the Super Bowl - something which may come as good news to football fans who have accused the singer of 'ruining the NFL'.

Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll know that in recent months Swift has been embarking on her huge Eras Tour, which has officially broken the Guinness World Record for the highest grossing tour to date.

Her next tour dates are scheduled to take place in Tokyo, Japan - with the first night being February 7.

Swift will perform at the Tokyo Dome for four nights in total - meaning she'll still be over 5,500 miles away from Las Vegas (where the Super Bowl is set to take place) in the run up to one of the world's largest sporting events.

This has left doubts in a lot of people's minds about if the 34-year-old will be able to make it back in time for her boyfriend's football game - but not all hope is lost.

Tokyo is a whopping 17 hours ahead of Las Vegas time, which could actually prove to be hugely beneficial for Swift.

The closest airport to the Tokyo Dome, Haneda Airport, is only a 25 minute drive so if she finishes her February 10 set on time, she could get there pretty quickly (traffic depending, of course).

It's said that Swift has two of her own multimillion dollar private jets, one of which reportedly has a range of 5,906 nautical miles - and Haneda Airport to Las Vegas’ Harry Reid International Airport is 4,821 nautical miles apart.

Speaking to The Athletic, an unnamed account manager at Paramount Business Jets - who isn't affiliated with Swift - predicted that the flight would take Swift around ten hours, meaning if she left Tokyo by 10:30pm, she'd be stateside for late afternoon on February 10.

While there is the possibility of being in Vegas a whole 24 hours before the Super Bowl actually takes place, there's still the issue of if there's any landing slots available.

As you'd expect, people will be travelling from far and wide to Vegas for the big night, meaning the airport will be pretty darn busy - so much so that all nearby airports are reported to be completely booked up, meaning Swift isn't totally 'Out of the Woods' just yet.

"The way that I got it explained by operators is that [they] don’t have any more availability at any of the Las Vegas airports that can receive a jet, whether it’s private or whether it’s commercial," the account manager claimed to the outlet.

I guess only time will tell if Swift will make it or not...
