Delta increases schedule to Las Vegas ahead of CES 2023
Supporting the exclusive innovation trade show, Delta is preparing for an influx of customers as the show is anticipated to be bigger and better after years of it being impacted by the pandemic.
It is estimated that 23,000 seats will be added to and from Las Vegas between January 3-4 and January 7-9. The airline’s four premium cabins will also see an additional 5,800 seats sold across that time frame. The almost 320 inbound and outbound inclusive flights will bring an approximate 50% seat increase over the airline’s normal Las Vegas January schedule.
Joe Esposito, Delta’s Senior Vice President of Network Planning, is optimistic about the increase in flights and what it means for customers.
“From sports championships to major industry milestones, Delta consistently works to meet our customers’ demand to attend the world’s biggest events by adding more seats and flights.
“After two years of virtual programming, we know CES attendees are looking forward to connecting in person, and the Delta team is excited to get them to and from Las Vegas safely and reliably, with the world-class service for which we’re known.”
On days of the conference, the airline will also be operating domestic inbound and outbound flights from 8 of its hubs. Passengers who have previously not been able to fly with the American-based airline due to its service limitations may have an opportunity to do so, with the airline additionally flying from Austin, Texas; Fort Lauderdale and Orlando, Florida; Orange County, California; and San Diego and San Jose, California.
International passengers from Amsterdam, London, Paris, Incheon and Mexico City will have access to both Delta and Delta-partnered flight options.
Although the flights have been additionally added, it does not mean that customers will not be able to experience the full experience. Passengers will have access to onboard entertainment options, in-flight Wi-Fi and premium food and beverage options.
What is CES?
The Consumer Technology Association’s annual CES event is regarded as the most influential tech event in the world. For more than 50 years, it has been the global stage for innovation. Held at the Las Vegas Convention Centre in Winchester, featured exhibitors include Amazon, Google, Microsoft and Sony. It is also an event that showcases breakthroughs in aerospace technology and what the future of aviation may look like. Previous years have seen innovations such as the “personal air vehicle,” Hyundai S-A1 eVTOL on display, as well as an introduction to curved cockpits.
Next year’s convention will be held from Thursday, 5 January to Sunday, 8 January.
