Taylor Swift’s plane from Tokyo Haneda airport is enroute to Los Angeles (not to Las Vegas). It is currently the most-tracked jet.
VistaJet’s flight VJT993, a Bombardier Global Express,, is operating as “The Football Era.” It is currently estimated in over an hour early, at 3:07 p.m. Pacific time.
Reportedly charter provider VistaJet made two unique preparations, besides having the plane ready for Ms. Swift’s swift departure following her Tokyo show:
- A team of mechanics on the ground in Tokyo
- A second jet on standby. Would you want to be the charter company that kept Taylor Swift from making the Super Bowl?

Her plane is waiting for her at LAX. She’s probably picking someone up. (And the jet she’s on, which is foreign-registered, cannot fly a passenger just between Los Angeles and Las Vegas.)
Taylor Swift performed in Tokyo Saturday night, and is arriving back in the U.S. before her show ended. Call it time travel, or the International Date Line. And she had written assurances from the government of Japan.
