With the United Kingdom being the number one overseas market for tourism in Las Vegas, it’s obvious that Sin City is an attractive destination for flights out of the UK. But we’re not going to tempt you with statistics alone, because the best part about Las Vegas is that getting there is about to get easier as British Airways has just added non-stop service from Gatwick to Las Vegas. This is the second service with BA for direct flights to Las Vegas out of the United Kingdom, with Heathrow to Las Vegas being the first.

So why exactly do you need to visit Sin City? How about because it’s like you’re taking a round world trip within one city. This feeling is thanks to not only the international tourism, but also to the spectacular hotels, each with their own theme. You can visit Italy, New York, France, and Egypt without stepping foot outside of the desert city. Take a look at what we mean…
