Downtown Las Vegas casino owners give away 1,700 free flights to start tourism

Posted on

As Las Vegas casinos prepare to reopen, operators are trying to find ways to bring in tourists. An owner of two casinos in the city center decided to give free flights to Sin City as a way to restart tourism figures. Derek Stevens distributed a total of 1,700 flights, with the players snatching them up as fast as they could.

Free Flight Deals:
Stevens is the owner of The D Las Vegas and Golden Gate, which is located on Fremont Street. He started his free flight offer with only 1,000 one-way flights from 20 cities across the United States. The flight was taken in less than two hours to visit Dewapoker, so Stevens added about 700 more tickets in the afternoon.

Flights are available on several airlines including Southwest, Sun County, Spirit and Allegiant Air. Flights depart from major cities such as Tampa, Boston, Denver, ST. Louis and Kansas City.

In a statement …
Says Stevens, “We know there is a high demand for Las Vegas, and looking at these aviation books as fast as they are is overwhelming and exciting.”
As Stevens prepares to reopen in Las Vegas, his company is proud to help bring travel to the region as well as support airlines that have been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic. Stevens said he would love for customers to visit downtown Las Vegas, but they are primarily offering a deal just to get tourism back into the region.

Governor Steve Sisolak gave an order for casinos to start reopening on June 4 this week. The casino has been closed in the state since mid-March and many operators will be ready to return to business once the June date is released.
