Special service from American Airlines and Japan Airlines for CES 2019

American Airlines and its Pacific joint business partner Japan Airlines have said they will operate a special nonstop flight between Narita International Airport in Tokyo and Las Vegas McCarran International Airport to support additional demand for CES® 2019. American will operate the flight Jan. 4–14, 2019.

“Thousands of travellers from Japan and other parts of Asia make their way to Las Vegas every year for CES,” said Shane Hodges, managing director of Asia Pacific Sales for American. “The network and onboard experience offered by American and Japan Airlines as part of our Pacific Joint Business is world-class, and we are thrilled to make getting to the world’s largest technology event faster and easier than ever before.”


This special service will be flown on American’s Boeing 787-8 and will be marketed by Japan Airlines. For the 10-day period, American’s service between NRT and Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) will operate through LAS. JAL will continue to offer nonstop service between NRT and ORD during the same period. 

The 787-8's are configured in a two-class cabin arrangement, 28 lie-flat seats with direct aisle access in business class and 55 main cabin extra seats and 143 main cabin seats in economy. All seats have the new touchscreen seatback monitors for the impressive in-flight entertainment package and wifi access.   “Travellers in Asia are discerning, wanting the best schedule on the best aircraft,” said Noboru Hirai, vice president of International Passenger Sales & Planning for JAL. “This special service allows us to do that, while closely working with American to tailor it to the needs of Japanese customers.”.



“For many of our visitors each year, Las Vegas means business, and there is no better example than CES,” said Rosemary A. Vassiliadis, director of McCarran International Airport. “With those customers in mind, the airport works closely with airlines and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority to expand and improve travellers’ options during peak demand times. This service from American will make it even easier for technology enthusiasts from Japan to experience CES. This 10-day air service is expected to have an estimated economic impact of $2.8 million in addition to the more than $270 million annually that CES and its 184,000 attendees bring to the local economy.”
