USAir will begin daily non-stop service between Baltimore-Washington International Airport and Las Vegas Jan. 8.
"Las Vegas is a very, very popular destination, and hardly rTC anyone is going there" from BWI, USAir spokesman David Shipley said. "Baltimore being one of our biggest hubs, we can collect a lot of people at Baltimore and put them through to Vegas."
USAir flies to Las Vegas from Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and West Coast airports, Mr. Shipley said. A BWI official said America West offers direct BWI-Las Vegas service and that American Airlines serves Las Vegas via connecting flights.
With 251 daily departures, USAir has far more flights out of BWI than any other airline. Non-stop flights to Las Vegas will leave BWI at 9:30 a.m. and arrive at noon. Returning to BWI, flights will leave Las Vegas at 11:50 a.m. and reach Baltimore at 7:29 p.m.
USAir said it will use 128-passenger Boeing 737s on the new route.
