U.S. Airlines are adding more flights to their schedules to transport passengers from and to Las Vegas for the Super Bowl, which will be held this year between the Kansas City Chiefs vs. San Francisco 49ers.
After the Chiefs’ and 49ers’ championship games, the carriers increased flights to and from their cities as well as other major hubs.
The flight numbers also give a nod towards Taylor Swift who is dating Kansas City tight-end Travis Kelce.
Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift celebrate after a 17-10 win against the Baltimore Ravens at the AFC Championship Game held at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore on January 28, 2024.
United Airlines announced that it has added 15 new direct flights to Vegas, including six from Kansas City, five from San Francisco, and four from San Jose.
The following flights will take you to Las Vegas: 1989, 2287, and 1587.
United informed us that this is a tribute to “the favorite Chiefs’ power pair,” as the number is a mixture of Kelce’s jersey number and one of Swift’s albums.
Flight 1989 is a reference to Swift’s birthday, as well as the name of an album she has recently re-recorded. Flight 1587 is the combination of Kelce’s jersey number and Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
