Cal Jet Elite Airways has launched its nonstop service between Carlsbad and Las Vegas, with its inaugural flight from McClellan-Palomar Airport to McCarran International Airport that left on Thursday at 9 a.m.
Departing from the small airport in Carlsbad will offer passengers to Las Vegas the benefit of faster check-in, shorter lines, and $5 daily parking, the airline said. Plus, Las Vegas residents who come to San Diego can now fly direct to visit North County destinations like Legoland and the San Diego Zoo Safari Park after landing.
“We're delighted that North County residents can now say good-bye to the I-5 when flying to Las Vegas," said George Wozniak President of Cal Jet Air. "Dealing with traffic to get to the airport downtown is a gamble our passengers don't have to take anymore."
Though it offers luxury service, Cal Jet Elite said they will commit to keeping pricing competitive with budget airlines. The two daily flights between Carlsbad and Las Vegas begin at $69 each way. The airline will not charge for reservation fees or the first checked bag, and will include complimentary beverages and snacks served to passengers aboard the Bombardier CRJ-700 jet aircraft.
Along with its new service, Cal Jet Elite also gave San Diego residents a chance to win a round trip flight to Las Vegas for just $21 each way. Travel vouchers were awarded to 500 people who came to the Cal Jet Elite Airways ticket counter at 8 a.m. at the Palomar Airport.
