Las Vegas tries to boost its tourism by opening a new airport terminal that hopefully will attract people to make a stop over on their way to Asia in the Sin City. Some passengers might just stay at the McCarran International Airport but the casinos are hoping that the tourists will drop by for a few hours.
The planned expansion will have a tag price of around $2.4 billion which was first planned when the city was a lot busier. The new Vegas airport terminal will be opening by June next year.
Las Vegas though still expects travelers to stay longer but the new marketing pitch is surely a way to adapt to the times when airplanes cannot be filled solely as a travel destination. Casinos have been missing the usual volume of customers ever since the recession.
