*UPDATE* Las Vegas Shooting

Tuesday, October 3, 2017

As a result of the shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday evening (local time) there are still some disruptions in the city.

  • A large section of Las Vegas Boulevard (The Strip) remains closed (see the map below).  As this area remains a crime scene, it is unknown when it will reopen.
  • Hotels, casinos and resorts in the closed area can still be accessed - these lock downs were lifted fairly quickly.
  • You can view the Mandalay Bay Hotel website HERE.
  • Flight operations have returned to normal at Las Vegas McCarran Airport however most carriers are allowing date changes for affected passengers over the coming days.
  • There are currently no helicopter arrivals or departures from McCarran Airport until 09 October due to FAA restrictions.    
  • People going on a Maverick Helicopters tour will have to go to the terminals in Henderson and Papillion in Boulder which are both fully operational.  If customers don't want this option, a full refund will be granted.
  • All Cirque du Soleil and Blue Man Group performances were cancelled for the evening of 02 Oct. 17.  Full refunds are available.
  • Shows at all MGM Resorts were also cancelled on Monday 02 October.
  • The President will visit Las Vegas on Wednesday 04 October and this will impact traffic and security in the area where the shooting occurred as well as the airport operations.
