Escaping the winter blues has never been easier, or this quick to sell out.

Jan. 22, 2020, is the day passengers board the inaugural Caesars Rewards Air flight for Harrah’s Laughlin, NV, just a stone’s throw away from Las Vegas.

Notably, travel packages including airfare, accommodations, entertainment, and more sold out in under eight weeks.

Fort McMurray Airport Authority President and CEO RJ Steenstra said the sales set a new record for Wood Buffalo.

“The community’s response has been incredible. Selling out in record time highlights our local market potential and puts us in a good position to attract more destinations in the future.”

Sun Country Airlines’ Boeing 737-800 planes depart Fort McMurray International Airport for Edmonton.

Aftering picking up more passengers, the charter heads to Bullhead City/Laughlin.

Return trips go direct to Fort McMurray thanks to the return of Canada Customs services.

Lorraine DeSeguin is a frequent flyer to sunny Laughlin and the inaugural charter’s first passenger.

She also enjoys staying at Caesars Entertainment hotel and casino, which overlooks the Colorado River on 1,100 feet of riverfront property

“Laughlin is a great destination that provides great value for your money. We like travelling to places where there is golf, sun and good food and Laughlin gives you all of that and more.”

The Wednesday-Sunday charter service runs throughout the winter season.
