Crawley, United Kingdom (PressExposure) June 29, 2009 -- British Airways has announced a new daily Las Vegas route, launching 25th October 2009, which increases the airline's services to the US to nineteen direct non-stop flights daily.
The new Las Vegas flights will be operated exclusively from Heathrow's Terminal 5 by a three-class Boeing 777, which will offer World Traveller (economy class), World Traveller Plus (premium economy class) and the award-winning Club World (business class), which features seats that convert to 180-degree flat beds.
Las Vegas calls itself The Entertainment Capital of the World, with huge hotel complexes lining the world famous Las Vegas Strip. British Airways' range of Las Vegas hotels varies from simple 2-star accommodation up to opulent 5-star hotels. From the fountains of the Bellagio Hotel, to the world famous shows at the MGM Grand and the full-size golf course and luxury shopping mall situated at the new Wynn Resort - visitors to the city can enjoy a wealth of Las Vegas sightseeing.
As part of a British Airways fly-drive, travellers can book a car rental with Avis and take a drive from Vegas to Arizona through desert scenery and towering mountain ranges. For the more adventurous Nevada visitor, Las Vegas tandem skydives or Lake Mead kayaking trips are also on offer.
British Airways is proud to add Las Vegas to its already extensive route network of US cities (which already includes major city destinations such as New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle and Houston) as well as providing holiday makers with hotels, car rental and tours across America, to help ensure travellers experience great USA holidays.
