Janet Flight Schedule


A fleet of six Boeing 737s provide commuter service between Las Vegas McCarran Airport, Area 51, TTR, Palmdale Plant 42 and sometimes other destinations as needed. The airline uses the callsign Janet and the planes are known as Janets. There are also seven smaller Beech Executive aircraft that operate out of the same terminal in Las Vegas. They are also known as Janets and use this callsign. Further down on this page you will find more information on the Beech Janets.

The six 737s make about 14 round-trip flights to Area 51 and about 10 to TTR every weekday. Some flights listed below do not operate every day. There may also be occasional flights as needed that are not listed below. There are usually no 737 Janet flights on weekends. The tables below show the flight schedule as of 06/01/2021.

Janets from Las Vegas to Area 51 or TTR usually turn off their Mode-S transponder (the device that allows aircraft tracking websites to display the aircraft's position) when entering the NTTR air space. So, how do we know which flights are going to Area 51 and which are going to TTR? Very simple: The altitude in the visible part of the flight path from Las Vegas to Area 51 is 14,000ft. and 15,000ft. for the return flight. For flights to/from TTR, the flight altitude is FL200/FL190. In addition, flights to Area 51 usually enter the ranges around Indian Springs or Mercury while TTR-bound flights usually follow US-95 towards Tonopah or head north-west from Mercury inside the ranges.

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.

TTR - Area 51 Flight

CallsignTimeNotes
Janet 5008:50am - 09:20amTue-Thu; usually via Hwy 95; some days direct, then landing at 9:05am

This direct flight from TTR to Area 51 usually operates Tuesday thru Thursday. Most days it flies down the US-95 corridor like the Janets from TTR to Vegas at FL190. At waypoint JAYSN south of Mercury it turns north and descends to 14,000ft for the Area 51 approach. Occasionally, if R-4807A is cold it flies direct at 14,000ft.

Palmdale round trip flights

Two weekly round trip flights transport workers from USAF Plant 42 in Palmdale, CA to Area 51 on Monday mornings and back on Friday nights (Thursdays before a holiday weekend). Plant 42 is home to the Lockheed ("Skunkworks") and Northrop black projects development division. The workers stay at Area 51 during the week.

Beech Executive Aircraft "Janet" Flights

The seven Beech "King Air" Executive Aircraft are registered to the same owner as the 737 Janets and operate from the same Las Vegas terminal. Since 02/2021 they also use the Janet call sign, but with a single digit flight number (e.g. "Janet 4" in radio traffic and "JANET04" on flight tracking web sites). The number is the last digit of the aircraft registration (tail number). See our list of Janet Tail Numbers. The exceptions are N20RA, which goes by "Janet 5" and N910CB, which goes by "Janet 10".

The King Airs make somewhat regular round trip flights to the destinations listed below as needed. There is usually at least one such trip every weekday, including some of the destinations listed. Most of the round trips originate from and end in Las Vegas. However, since the Las Vegas Janet terminal only has room for four of the seven jets some of them are always at Area 51 or TTR over night and occasionally make round trips from there.

Sometimes one of the King Airs provides support for tests inside the ranges. In June of 2020 N654BA was stationed at TTR and flew test missions over the Tolicha Peak Electronic Combat Range (TPECR) and over the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS) using the callsign Greyhound 1. N661BA has also been spotted supporting an Area 51 mission using the Area 51 call sign Sabre 45.
