British Airways to fly Las Vegas-London direct

British Airways announced they will be adding a daily direct flight to Las Vegas from London starting in October, just in time for the opening of Project City Center.  This is great news for Las Vegas as visitor count over the last year has dropped and any opportunity for Las Vegas to add more flights to McCarran International Airport is another opportunity to bring in more tourists.  According to British Airways, round trip fares will start at about $460, plus fees and taxes.

With many Americans staying closer to home because of the recession, it’s important that Las Vegas keeps doing a great job of tapping into the International Markets.
