American Airlines and Japan Airlines Add Direct Flights Between Tokyo and Las Vegas in Support of CES 2020

FORT WORTH, Texas, July 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Airlines and Pacific Joint Business partner Japan Airlines (JAL) for the second year are adding direct flights between Tokyo (NRT) and Las Vegas (LAS) to support the high demand for CES® 2020. American is also adding nonstop flights from Austin, Texas (AUS), and San Jose, California (SJC), and upgauging existing flights from Philadelphia (PHL) and Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) to LAS surrounding the main event, which runs Jan. 4–12.

Tokyo demand

“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 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.

Domestic demand   

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 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.

In addition to the new direct service in January, two flights from American’s hubs — PHL and DFW — will be upgauged to an Airbus A330 and a 777-200, respectively, for an 18% increase in seats domestically. As American’s largest trans-Atlantic hub, PHL will provide more seats for customers connecting from Europe.

Tickets will be available for purchase on July 22.
