NYC to Las Vegas Flight Information
The flight from New York City to Las Vegas will take you across the span of the US, from the busy streets, cultural diversity and corporate bustle of the Big Apple, to the sizzling desert skies and equally scintillating nightlife of Las Vegas. From Broadway, to Caesar’s Palace, both cities have a lot to offer, and Skyscanner’s tips will ensure that your journey is smooth flying the whole way.
Airline and Route Options
You have three airports to choose from when flying out of the New York City area: JFK, La Guardia, and Newark. JFK and La Guardia are located on Long Island, on the South and North side, respectively, while Newark Liberty International is located just outside the city, but within view of its well-known skyline, in Newark, NJ. Direct flights connecting New York and Las Vegas run daily from both JFK and Newark airports. United Airlines fly out of Newark, while Delta, Virgin America, JetBlue, and American Airlines fly from JFK. Average flight time for a direct flight is just under 6 hours.
If you’d rather have flight with a layover, there are many options, departing from any of the three airports in the greater NYC region. These flights are hosted by a range of domestic and international carriers, including United, Delta, Spirit, American, Southwest, JetBlue, Virgin America, Sun Country, Volaris, Alaska, and Royal Jordanian airlines.
Las Vegas McCarran International has two terminals, Terminal 1 and Terminal 3. Wondering what happened to Terminal number 2? It was closed in 2012, so is no longer in use, but the other terminals kept their original numbers. Terminals 1 and 3 are in separate buildings, so if you have someone picking you up, make sure they know which terminal you are flying into – this will be determined based on which airline you are flying with. Each terminal has its own parking, baggage claim, check-in and retail facilities, so you’ll have everything you need no matter where you land. For more details and information on each terminal, why not check McCarran International’s official website, and have a look at Skyscanner’s information on what to do in the city, once you’ve taken your flight to Las Vegas.
In order to board your flight, you will need to provide a government-issued photo ID, such as a passport or driver’s license. While any such ID is acceptable for travel within the continental U.S., do pay attention if you are taking a connecting flight – occasional NYC airports connect through Toronto, in which case you’ll want to make sure you bring your passport. For further details, information on travelling with infants and children, and options for alternate forms of ID in case you do not have a photo ID, please see the official TSA webite.
Time Zone and Climate
Las Vegas is in the Pacific Time Zone, putting it three hours behind New York City, which is in the Eastern Time Zone. While New York has a temperate climate with hot summers, cold winters, and distinct spring and fall weather, Las Vegas’s desert climate in the midst of the Mojave desert is quite a change. Las Vegas has very little rain annually, so skies are clear and bright virtually all year round. If you’re travelling in summer, when average highs are in the 90s and often reach over 100, you might not even need to bother with a hair dryer – a few minutes outside might just do the trick! Winter temperatures will feel mild compared to New York, with highs around 50°F, and lows rarely getting to freezing.
