Las Vegas is eager to fill its hotels and casinos once again. Derek Stevens, CEO of the D Las Vegas and Golden Gate Hotel & Casino, just announced an initiative designed to jumpstart Vegas’ summer tourism season. Stevens, who will be reopening his two hotels on June 4, is giving away 1,000 free one-way flights to Las Vegas from over 20 major US cities. The “Keep America Flying” program is designed to stimulate both the city’s tourism industry and the country’s airline industry.

In the announcement, Stevens said, “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. 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.’ And while we’d love for visitors to stop by Downtown Las Vegas, we primarily want to get people back to Las Vegas to experience the attractions and amenities that make it one of the greatest places on Earth.”

The free one-way flights are available through airlines including Allegiant, Frontier, Southwest, Spirit, and Sun Country, from the following cities:

  • Appleton, WI (ATW)
  • Austin, TX (AUS)
  • Atlanta, GA (ATL)
  • Boise, ID (BOI)
  • Chicago, IL (ORD)
  • Cincinnati, OH (CVG)
  • Dallas, TX (DFW)
  • Denver, CO (DIA)
  • Detroit, MI (DTW)
