Everything you need to know about flying to Las Vegas with British Airways

When is the best time to fly?

One of the sunniest places in the world, with sizzling desert heat temperatures, Las Vegas is an out-of-this-world year-round destination.

Rather than peak seasons, there are peak weeks in Vegas. These tend to occur in the heights of summer, June – August, when highs reach 34°C and immense party events shake up the city. December and January can also be pretty pricey with gigantic celebrations over New Year’s Eve, despite temperatures dropping to lows of 8°C.

You can find lower rates during mid-week since Las Vegas is a popular choice for those big weekends. Spring and fall and great times to visit because the months March – May and September – November offer balmy temperatures and less crowds. Remember, the desert temperatures drop once the sun goes down, so bring a few layers for evenings.
