Janet Flight Schedule


In Spring 2011 most of the Janet flight numbers have changed. However, except for the different numbers, the schedule stayed mostly the same, with a few adjustments to accomodate co-operation between Groom, TTR and the Palmdale development facilities of Lockheed and/or Northrop.

The schedule below is based on data from May 2011. Contrary to older schedules, the new flight numbers are no longer an indication for the direction or destination of a flight. There appears to be no system, other than in most cases a given aircraft returns to LAS with a flight number that is 112 higher than the outbound flight. In FlightAware and other aircraft tracking web sites, the Janets use the airline code WWW. So, Janet 474 would show as flight WWW474.

Please see our Detailed Janet Flight Schedule for more information and to track the movement of individual aircraft.

The Las Vegas Janet terminal is located in the 400 block of S. Haven Street, only a couple of blocks off the south end of the Las Vegas Strip. For some good view spots please see our Map and Aerial Photo of the Las Vegas Janet Terminal.

Groom Callsign is the alternate callsign used by Groom Approach/Departure and Groom Tower, after the flight is handed off from Nellis Control. The name changes frequently, but the number is always the same for a given Janet flight. In most cases it is the last two digits of the original flight number plus 15. E.g. Bunny 89, Colt 89, Maple 89, Tiger 89 etc. for Janet 474.

Groom - Palmdale round trip

Since at least Summer of 2010 there are two weekly Janet 737 commuter flights between Area 51 and Palmdale Regional Airport (KPMD). On Mondays, workers from Palmdale (likely Lockheed Plant 42) fly out to Area 51 on Janet 754 and on Fridays they return home on Janet 281. They stay at Area 51 during the week.

Groom - TTR

Last, but not least, the mysterious Janet 278, flying on Mondays from the non-existent airport code KTKM to KTNX (TTR). As it turns out, this flight returns the aircraft that flew from TTR via Palmdale to Groom (see above) to TTR, to "balance" the schedule. This is, to the best of our knowledge, the only direct flight of a Boeing 737 Janet between Groom and TTR. The airport designation "KTKM" stands for Area 51. For details why this flight is needed, please see our Detailed Janet Flight Schedule.

Destination Codes

During clearance delivery the destination of a Janet flight is given. However, instead of actual names, the following codes are used:

  Destination  Code
  Palmdale Regional Airport/USAF Plant 42 (KPMD)    Station 1  
  Groom Lake (KTNX/KTKM)  Station 3
  ??  Station 6
  TTR (KTNX/KTKM)  Station 7
  Las Vegas Janet Terminal (KLAS)  Station 9  

Other Destinations

The smaller Beech King Air turboprops of the Janet fleet, as well as a handful of other small aircraft, also operate more or less regular flights from Las Vegas to TNX (TTR/Groom) and to a few other locations. The flight plans for the King Airs no longer show on flight tracking web sites. In radio communications with civilian ATC's they use their tail number as call sign (a common practice for small aircraft). On Groom Approach and Tower they use the same prefix as the Janets with a single digit number (e.g. "Bunny 1", "Bunny 3"). Destinations besides Groom and TTR include:
