But first you have to get there. If you are flying in from Europe, it will be a pretty long affair. Most major European airlines such as Lufthansa, British Airways, KLM, TAP sly to New York, which is always a good option for a connecting flight into Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport. Some carriers fly directly there, but it is a very long flights, so you might wish to break the journey and also perhaps take a few days to explore New York, Washington DC, Philadelphia or Boston.

If you are going there from farther, Australia, for example, it takes a bit longer.
