Patriots fans on a budget, take heart. Airlines have added extra flights between New England and Indianapolis, bringing down airfares that were averaging about $1,000 a few days ago.

Southwest Airlines is operating two special nonstop flights between T.F. Green Airport in Providence and Indianapolis over Super Bowl weekend ? one leaving T. F. Green at 5 p.m. on Feb. 3 and another one returning Feb. 6 at 11 p.m. The round-trip cost: $725.

US Airways has added a handful of extra nonstop flights between Boston and Indy -- two more on Feb. 3 and four more on Feb. 6. Lowest price: $830.

Delta Air Lines has a nonstop flight, leaving Logan International Airport Feb. 3 and returning from Indianapolis Feb. 6, for $740 ? although you?ll have to leave Indianapolis at 12:45 a.m. to get it. If you want to leave at the more reasonable hour of 8:15 a.m., it?s $1,013.

Procrastinators beware: Airfare prices can change quickly.
