As Super Bowl LVIII approaches, speculation mounts about whether Taylor Swift will make it to the game on time.
With her packed schedule, including recent Grammy wins and international touring, the question arises: Can Swift fly from Tokyo to Las Vegas in time for the big event?
While her private jet offers flexibility, the logistics of crossing nine time zones and coordinating performances raise eyebrows. So, it’s time to delve into the details.
Taylor Swift plans to attend the Super Bowl on February 11, where her boyfriend Travis Kelce will play, despite her four Tokyo shows from February 7th to February 10th. Her private jet, a Dassault Falcon 7X, could cover the 5,500-mile Tokyo-Las Vegas trip in about 10 hours, providing a logistical solution for her busy schedule.
Will Taylor Swift Attend the 2024 Super Bowl?
After wrapping up a string of performances, Taylor Swift gears up to hit the stage again, starting with four shows in Tokyo from February 7th to February 10th.
Meanwhile, her boyfriend, Travis Kelce, is set to play at Super Bowl LVIII with his team- the Kansas City Chiefs against the San Francisco 49ers on February 11, Sunday, at 6:30 p.m. EST in Las Vegas.
So, she can and probably will attend the Super Bowl this year. However, her famously lengthy concerts and the distance between Tokyo and Las Vegas present a logistical puzzle.
Swift’s renowned 44-song setlist typically requires around 3.5 hours to perform. If she departs from Haneda Airport, closest to the Tokyo Dome, she could feasibly be airborne by midnight, allowing for some flexibility.
However, the flight from Tokyo to Vegas, spanning a whopping nine time zones as well as the international date line, is approximately 12 hours long.
Swift could opt for various flight routes, each with its own pros and cons. A route via San Francisco, albeit costly and time-consuming, offers a chance to catch the Super Bowl after her Tokyo concert.
Alternatively, a more affordable option via Los Angeles provides a shorter layover and reduced emissions but still poses a tight schedule.
Considering sustainability, Swift may opt for a lower-emission flight despite the longer travel time. While a business jet offers convenience, its carbon footprint raises concerns.
However, as per USA Today, Swift will probably opt for a Dassault Falcon 7X business jet, boasting a range of 5,950 miles, more than sufficient for the approximately 5,500-mile journey from Tokyo to Las Vegas without layovers.
With a blazing top speed of 562 miles per hour, the jet is anticipated to complete the journey in roughly 10 hours.
Ultimately, Swift’s decision hinges on balancing time, convenience, and environmental responsibility.
With her global influence, every choice she makes sparks conversations about sustainability and celebrity lifestyles. As fans eagerly await her Super Bowl arrival, the journey unfolds as part of the spectacle.
As Taylor Swift navigates the skies en route to Super Bowl LVIII, the world watches with bated breath.
Will she make it in time to join Travis Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs in Las Vegas? Can she balance her superstar schedule with eco-friendly travel choices?
Only time will tell as Swift’s journey unfolds, captivating fans around the globe.
