The Kansas City Chiefs are headed to their fourth Super Bowl in five years, this time in Las Vegas.

Even if you don’t have tickets to the match against the San Francisco 49ers, you can watch the game on Feb. 11 from the Vegas Strip.

On Sunday night, United Airlines announced that they added three flights from Kansas City to Las Vegas ahead of the Super Bowl. American Airlines added seven new flights for Chiefs fans as well.

United’s flight numbers reference Chiefs, including 1587 for Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce’s uniform numbers and 1989 for Taylor Swift’s album.

Driving from Kansas City to Las Vegas would take about 20 hours, without stops or traffic. You can choose between passing through Denver or Albuquerque on your way to the Raiders’ Allegiant Stadium.

The Star calculated the cheapest plane tickets to and from Las Vegas flying on Friday, Feb. 9, and Tuesday, Feb. 13, using Google Flights and individual airline websites. Flying on these days leaves you one full day before and after the Super Bowl, though tickets are cheaper if you leave earlier or later.
