American Airlines is joining its Pacific Joint Business partner, Japan Airlines, for the second year to add direct flights between Tokyo (NRT) and Las Vegas (LAS) to serve the high demand for the 2020 Consumer Electronic Show (CES).
American is also adding direct flights from major tech cities Austin and San Jose for the first time. Both flights will be operated on a Boeing 737-800 with optimal schedules and convenience for CES attendees.
"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.
This will be the second year that American is providing direct access to LAS from NRT 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.
