One of the world's biggest tech conferences is poised to return to an in-person gathering this January.

After back-to-back years of virtual programming, the Consumer Electronics Show is returning to Las Vegas between Jan. 5 and 8.

With more than 170,000 attendees expected to head to Sin City for the events, Delta Air Lines is boosting its nonstop services to and from Harry Reid International Airport (LAS) during the busiest travel days before and after the show.

Delta will fly nearly 320 flights during the five days from Jan. 3 to 4 and Jan. 7 to 9, the airline said on Friday. This represents a nearly 50% increase in available seats during a regular January schedule for Delta.

The airline will add roughly 23,000 seats, of which 5,800 will be in one of the carrier's premium cabins, to shuttle attendees to and from CES. This includes new limited-time service from six U.S. cities that Delta doesn't typically serve from Las Vegas, including:

  • Austin, Texas, from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS).
  • Fort Lauderdale from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL).
  • Orlando from Orlando International Airport (MCO).
  • Orange County, California, from John Wayne Airport (SNA).
  • San Diego from San Diego International Airport (SAN).
  • San Jose, California, from Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport (SJC).

Delta and its partners will also offer international service to Vegas from Amsterdam Airport Schipol (AMS), London's Heathrow Airport (LHR), Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) and Seoul, South Korea's Incheon International Airport (ICN). You'll find the full table of flights Delta plans to offer at the bottom of this post.

Delta will load many of the additional flights to its schedule this weekend, and travelers should be able to book them beginning on Sunday, Aug. 28.

Delta is no stranger to the CES show, with the airline's CEO Ed Bastian keynoting the conference during its last in-person offering back in 2020. At the time, Bastian talked about things like systemwide inflight Wi-Fi, expanded inflight entertainment options and a "Parallel Reality" flight information monitor — all initiatives that Delta has been working hard to implement since then.

In recent years, and especially during the pandemic, U.S. airlines have been looking to find additional pockets of demand during peak travel periods, primarily around major sporting events, such as the Super Bowl and college football game days.

American Airlines, Delta and United Airlines have all added nonstop flights connecting new and existing cities to bring fans to and from the action for a limited time.

“From sports championships to major industry milestones, Delta consistently works to meet our customers’ demand to attend the world’s biggest events by adding more seats and flights,” said Joe Esposito, senior vice president of network planning for Delta.
