This Las Vegas Casino Owner Will Fly You To Vegas For Free To Help Boost City's Tourism
As cities across the globe begin to re-open, many are looking for ways to quickly get their respective economies up and running. Las Vegas was among those hit hard financially when resorts and casinos were shut down. Now, casino owner Derek Stevens is doing his part to fix it.
With resorts and casinos slated to open on June 4, Stevens, who owns The Golden Gate Casino and “The D,” is offering to pay for 1,700 one-way flights into Vegas from more than 20 major U.S. cities.
Vegas needs these tourists. We want people to come back,” Stevens said in an interview.
The campaign “Keep America Flying” is an effort to get the casino and airline industry pumping once again. According to a video posted on social media, there were no strings attached to how to get the free flight. You only had to fly from one of the cities included in the 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. Our community needs you. We’re just trying to do our share. Keep America flying, keep Las Vegas rolling,” Stevens said in the video.
