American Airlines and Japan Airlines (JAL) have confirmed that they will support the high demand for CES 2020 with additional direct flights between Tokyo (Narita) and Las Vegas.
American will also add nonstop flights from Austin, Texas, and San Jose, California, and upgauge existing flights from Philadelphia and Dallas-Fort Worth to Las Vegas surrounding the main event, which runs Jan 4–12.
"As CES continues to grow each year, we will continue to deliver on our promise to strengthen the value of our global network," said Vasu Raja, American's Vice President of Network and Schedule Planning.
This will be the second year that American is providing direct access to Las Vegas from Narita in support of CES.
The flight will be operated on a Boeing 777-200 aircraft, featuring 36 fully lie-flat, all-aisle access Flagship Business seats that provide customers access to The Club at LAS to freshen up upon arrival or relax before departing.
Flight times between NRT and LAS will provide a seamless connection onto JAL's network to and from Southeast Asia, including Singapore; Bangkok; Jakarta, Indonesia; and Manila, Philippines.
American is also adding direct flights from major tech cities Austin and San Jose for the first time, offering additional service to fly next-generation innovators to the conference. Both flights will be operated on a Boeing 737-800.
"Whether it's customers taking advantage of the direct flight from Austin or connecting on a lie-flat product all the way from South America to Las Vegas, we want to make sure the world's best innovators have options on the world's largest carrier," Raja said.© Asia Travel Tips
