Move over COVID-19, it's 'viva Las Vegas' time!!!
A downtown casino owner in Las Vegas wants to bus in business in the form of 1,000 free flights to the famous Sin City...
Casinos in Las Vegas are slated to reopen next week, by June 4. Derek Stevens, who owns D Las Vegas and the Golden Gate Hotel & Casino, is preparing for the reopening by offering free airline fares from more than 20 major US cities under what he calls the "Keep America Flying" promotion.
"Obviously, my team and I would like you to stay at one of our hotels. But if you don't, that's alright too, because Las Vegas needs you," Stevens said in the video announcement. "Our community needs you. We're just trying to do our share. Keep America flying, keep Las Vegas rolling."
“As we begin to reopen our doors across the city, we are proud to help reinvigorate travel to Las Vegas while supporting airlines in America impacted by the COVID-19 crisis,” Stevens said. “We can’t wait to safely bring visitors to the city and remind them why we’ve earned the title of ‘Entertainment Capital of the World.’"
Stevens added that it's not only about economic stimulus, but also about reminding the country that there's still fun to be had in Vegas despite the recent pandemic.
