Casino Circa CEO Derek Stevens to give away 1,000 free flights to Las Vegas May 27, 2020 By Ezra Amacher Circa Resort & Casino CEO Derek Stevens is giving away 1,000 free flights to Las Vegas. Stevens also said that Circa properties the D Las Vegas and Golden Gate Hotel & Casino will reopen on June 4. “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,” said Stevens. “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 several airlines and more than 20 airports. “Obviously my team and I would like you to stay at one of our hotels,” said Stevens. “But if you don’t, that’s alright too because Las Vegas needs you. Our community needs you.” Las Vegas casinos face an uphill battle at attracting air passengers this summer. Domestic air travel has dropped by more than 90% since the onset of COVID-19 in March. International travelers face even greater hurdles of visiting Las Vegas. The Center For Disease Control and Prevention prohibits entry to the US from China, Europe and the UK.
