Delta and KLM to fly to Las Vegas for CES 201910/07/2018
Delta Air Lines and partner KLM will operate special nonstop services between Amsterdam-Schiphol and Las Vegas in January 2019, benefiting customers attending the Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
It will be the second consecutive year that the partner airlines have offered a nonstop link between the Netherlands and the world’s largest technology event. The flights will also benefit customers flying to CES from destinations across Europe, the Middle East, India and Africa thanks to convenient connections available via Amsterdam. Delta and partner Air France will also be offering special Las Vegas flights from Paris.
“CES is the largest global innovation event and we are making it easier for thousands of Tech customers from around the world to get together in Las Vegas thanks to our special nonstop flights from Amsterdam,” said Dwight James, Delta’s senior vice president Transatlantic. “It’s another example of how our partnership with KLM and our network from Amsterdam enable us to connect our customers around the world.”
Delta’s own focus on technology saw the airline named as one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies Worldwide in 2018. Delta was recognized for its commitment to improving the airport experience, including the introduction of RFID bag tracking through the Fly Delta App. This industry-first has also been credited in paving the way for an IATA mandate in global RFID bag tracking technology. Meanwhile, in partnership with CLEAR, the airline is trialling biometric technology at its U.S. hubs to make travel smoother.
The airline is also focused on technology on board. Delta operates the world’s largest fleet of aircraft offering in-seat AVOD entertainment for every customer, offering thousands of hours of free content. Customers can also enjoy Wi-Fi access and free mobile messaging to keep in touch with friends, family and colleagues throughout their journey.
Delta’s nonstop flights to Las Vegas will be operated using a 293-seat Airbus A330-300 and will depart Amsterdam on January 6, 7, and 12, 2019. KLM flights will be operated using a 408-seat Boeing 747-400 with departures on January 6 and 7. Customers can enjoy the latest movies, TV, games and more at their seats.
Delta and KLM’s special services between Amsterdam and Las Vegas are available to book on the airlines’ respective websites or via travel agents.
