British Airways offers direct daily flight to Las Vegas from Terminal 5 at Heathrow Airport since October 2009. The service is currently operated by a three-class Boeing 777. From June 1, 2011, a four-class Boeing 747 will replace it offering British Airways’ First Class cabin.

“Our direct service from London Heathrow to Las Vegas has been one of our most successful launches in recent years,” said Richard Tams, British Airways head of marketing and sales. “It is one of the star performing routes on the BA network and such a winner with our customers that we are increasing capacity by 18 per cent from next summer and offering that extra touch of luxury.”

As part of the fly-drive service of British Airways, travelers can book car rental in Las Vegas with Avis and take a drive to the breathtaking Grand Canyon. If the customer prefers, he can also walk along the Grand Canyon Skywalk and enjoy the full panoramic view.

Las Vegas, also known as the Entertainment Capital of the World, offers huge hotel complexes lining the world famous Las Vegas Strip. The city has a wide range of hotels ranging from simple two-star accommodation up to unforgettable five-star hotels.

British Airways offers an expanding route network of U.S. cities including New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Orlando and Miami as well as providing holiday makers with hotels, car rental and tours across America.

British Airways is currently rolling out its new First cabin across the long haul fleet, which will be completed by the first quarter of 2012.
