United Airlines has announced that it has added 44 flights to make it “easier” for CES 2022 attendees to join the in-person show in Las Vegas. The airline says that it has expanded its schedule in response to feedback from its business customers and an uptick in demand.

In addition to this, United is also adding 30 flights from its hub airports in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York/Newark, and Washington D.C./Dulles. This represents a capacity increase of 37% compared to its usual January schedule to Las Vegas.

United will fly 81 flights into Las Vegas during the peak arrival days of 3-4 January 2022 and 109 flights on the peak departure days of 8-10 January 2022. New flights include:

  • 8 direct flights from San Jose

United states that between 27th October 2021 and 9th November 2021, searches on United.com for flights to Las Vegas during CES 2022 were up 70% compared to the prior two-week period. And according to a recent survey of United’s business passengers, nearly 20% say they expect travel to meetings and conferences will exceed pre-pandemic levels in 2022.

Ankit Gupta, Senior Vice President of Domestic Planning and United Express, said:

The return of in-person conferences and events is a very positive sign in the pandemic recovery, and United is uniquely positioned to capitalize on this increase in demand. We’re adding about 80% of the capacity we did for CES in 2020, demonstrating that business travel is on the rebound and our customers are eager to reunite with clients and colleagues.

Meanwhile, United Airlines recently announced that it will resume its seasonal service from Chicago and Washington to Dublin in 2022.
