Super Bowl Soars to New Heights with Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce-Themed Flights
Airlines Unveil Special Flight Numbers in Honor of Superstar Duo Ahead of Kansas City Chiefs vs. San Francisco 49ers Clash.
The Super Bowl weekend is fast approaching, and this year, the excitement isn’t just limited to the game itself. Major airlines like American Airlines and United are taking fan enthusiasm to new heights by adding special flights with a unique twist – paying homage to pop sensation Taylor Swift and Kansas City Chiefs’ star Travis Kelce.
American Airlines Takes Flight with Swift and Kelce
American Airlines has announced the addition of two special flights between Kansas City and Las Vegas airports, setting the stage for a Super Bowl weekend to remember. Flight numbers 1989, a nod to Taylor Swift’s birth year and one of her iconic albums, are scheduled to take off on Friday, February 9, and Saturday, February 10. As a post-game treat, Flight 87, matching Travis Kelce’s jersey number, will depart from Las Vegas on February 12.
A spokesperson from American Airlines expressed their excitement, stating, “The excitement surrounding this year’s sporting events has never been greater. You could say that after tonight’s games, we are in our football era, and we are thrilled to provide direct flights from Kansas City to Las Vegas. To our customers who are huge sports fans, look what you made us do.”
Chiefs’ Quarterback Patrick Mahomes Gets in the Air
Not to be outdone, Kansas City Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes also has his own share of special flights, honoring his jersey number 15. These flights, departing at various times between the two cities, add an extra layer of fandom to the Super Bowl weekend.
United Joins the Celestial Celebration: United Airlines is also joining the party with Swift and Kelce-themed flight numbers between Kansas City and Las Vegas over the Super Bowl weekend. But they aren’t stopping there. United has incorporated additional special flights from San Francisco, including Flight 1995, commemorating the last time the 49ers clinched the Super Bowl, and Flight 1849, a nod to the “original rush” – the year of the California Gold Rush.
Airlines Elevate Super Bowl Travel Tradition
While airlines commonly add special flights to Super Bowl host cities for fans, this year’s unique twist with themed flight numbers adds an extra layer of excitement. The game is scheduled for Sunday, February 11, at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, promising not only an epic clash on the field but also an unforgettable experience for fans making the journey.
“Airlines elevate Super Bowl travel with themed flights, as American Airlines and United pay homage to Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce through special flight numbers, adding a unique and exciting dimension to the journey for fans of the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers.”
As fans gear up for the Super Bowl showdown between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers, the addition of Swift and Kelce-themed flights by American Airlines and United demonstrates that the excitement extends beyond the football field. This creative initiative adds a touch of glamour to the traditional Super Bowl travel plans, making the journey just as memorable as the game itself. So, whether you’re a die-hard Swiftie, a Chiefs Kingdom supporter, or simply a football enthusiast, buckle up for a Super Bowl weekend that takes flight in more ways than one.
