LV Air’s lastest update

LV Air (Las Vegas Airlines) (Las Vegas) claims to be “signing leases” for its first aircraft and is planning to launch operations later this year. The public charter airline would have to have another Part 121 to fly the projected routes. The paper airline has issued the following statement:

“LV Air, the new wide-bodied luxury carrier bringing casino players and vacationers to Las Vegas, is now signing leases for jetliners, raising additional capital, partnering with gaming resorts and examining which airports it will fly from later this year.

“The new public charter carrier will provide Boeing 767 non-stop jet service between McCarran International Airport, Las Vegas and John F. Kennedy International Airport, New York and several other U.S. cities, starting in autumn 2011,” says spokesman Bryan Glazer, President of JetPlane Public Relations.

“Our first class seats will be fully reclining for the 5.5 hour flight between New York and Las Vegas,” says LV Air Founder and Chief Marketing Officer Sean Smith. “The cabin will include mood lighting, club music, celebrity holographic video safety briefings, Wi-Fi, intra-seat text messaging, at-seat TV monitors and three-course Las Vegas-style gourmet meals prepared by some of ‘Sin City’s’ most-renowned chefs.”

In addition to its non-stop JFK-LAS flights, the company is also planning possible service from numerous other airports in Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Ohio and Virginia.”

Glazer adds, “Some of these airports have placed an ‘open call’ in published news stories trying to entice a carrier like LV Air to start service to Las Vegas from their communities.” He adds, “These enticements include assisting new carriers with local marketing efforts and waiving take-off, landing, gate and terminal space fees.”
