NOTE/UPDATE: Cal Jet suspended flights in April 2018. I believe another airline has become the primary commercial carrier in Carlsbad now.
For those Carlsbadians, and others, who frequent Las Vegas and get tired of that drive, Cal Jet by Elite Airways is now flying from Carlsbad McClellan-Palomar Airport round-trip. Flights started back in late September this year.
If you have even flown out of our local airport you probably know what a pleasure it can be. Better parking, and less expensive, close to home without battling rush hour on the 5 to and from San Diego, and short lines. And the first bag flies free at Call Jet!
I have a good friend who just enjoyed a Cal Jet flight from LV to Carlsbad and back and raved about it.
So consider Cal Jet for your next trip to Las Vegas. Yes, you fly into McCarran Airport in Las Vegas and you may need to rent a car, unless getting around via Uber works, but the time you save may be well worth it. And it’s something different to do.
And I’ve heard through the grapevine they are planning to open up fights to other cities including Oakland and San Jose. We’ll see!!
