Newly Purchased Boeing 787-8 Airliner to Expand New Las Vegas Resort’s Private Charter Capabilities for Commercial Use, Group Business
As Resorts World Las Vegas continues to stake its claim as Las Vegas’s newest integrated resort and a major gaming and hospitality player in the marketplace, the resort has announced the newest addition to its private airline fleet, a Boeing 787-8.
Elevating its luxury charter assets as part of the resort’s operational enhancement strategy, the spacious commercial airplane can comfortably transport up to 262 guests with both economy and business class seating options.
As the only resort-owned airplane of this size in Las Vegas, this purchase opens up new opportunities for the resort’s potential and existing luxury customers, as well as large groups and premium mass segments seeking easy and exclusive travel options, offering an amenity not currently available in the marketplace. This new addition also provides Resorts World Las Vegas the unique opportunity to explore innovative charter services outside the resort’s primary hospitality function through its sales and convention teams as an alternative option for large corporate and leisure groups to fly privately to and from international destinations and key metropolitan cities including Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Miami, Dallas and Chicago, linking Resorts World’s global properties.
The commercial airliner has a range of up to 8,200 nautical miles, allowing for non-stop routes from Las Vegas to Asia, Europe and Latin America.
The resort’s airline fleet also includes a Bombardier Express XRS jet, purchased in June 2021, which is designed to accommodate just 12 guests in ultimate comfort.
The 787-8 airliner, previously held by Genting Hong Kong’s wholly-owned subsidiary Crystal Luxury Aircraft Holdings Limited, was purchased by Resorts World Las Vegas on Tuesday, Oct. 26.
