In June, Resorts World Las Vegas became the latest from square one Casino to open on the Strip in more than ten years.
The $4.3 billion amenities have dazzled visitors since its June 24 opening. This week, the casino facility made yet another headline-grabbing announcement with its purchase of a commercial-grade airliner.
Resorts World Las Vegas unveiled that its newest amenity is a Boeing 786-8 Dreamliner in a release. The aircraft can accommodate 262 passengers and has a range of 8,200 nautical miles.
The north Strip Casino is the first in Las Vegas history to own a commercial airline established for guests. The Dreamliner joins the resort’s Bombardier Express XRS airliner, which carries 12 passengers.
RWLV is owned and run by Genting Group. Resorts World bought the Dreamliner from Crystal Luxury Aircraft Holdings, a Genting fully-owned division.
Huge charters planned
Genting Group is a union that operates in several leisure and hospitality segments around the world. Through its numerous divisions, Genting has resort facilities in its home country, UK, Hong Kong, Singapore, US, China, Caribbean, South Korea, Philippines, and Macau.
Genting plans to use its Dreamline to better link its global portfolio to its biggest casino investment to date in Southern Nevada.
Resorts World revealed that long-range airliners allow express routes from Las Vegas to Asia, Latin America, and Europe. Furthermore, the Casino’s sales team can better promote the integrated resort to large groups considering hosting a convention in Las Vegas.
“As the only resort-owned airplane of this size in Las Vegas, this purchase opens up new opportunities for the resort’s potential and existing luxury customers, as well as large groups and premium mass segments seeking easy and exclusive travel options, offering an amenity not currently available in the market place,”
declared the presser.
“This new edition also provides Resorts World Las Vegas the unique opportunity to explore innovative charter services outside the resort’s primary hospitality function through its sales and convention teams,”
said a statement from the firm.
The plane is
“an alternative option for large corporate and leisure groups to fly privately to and from international destinations and key metropolitan cities.”
Many casinos in Las Vegas and other key gaming markets provide private jet service for high rollers. However, the jets are often smaller aircraft, similar to Resorts World’s Bombardier.
Las Vegas has one of the major air fleets in the region. The casino firm, which will be without a casino in its brand city once its divestiture of The Venetian and Palazzo is finished in the coming weeks, contains eight aircraft.
However, the firm’s larger airliners are leased from a private equity company. In addition, they are particularly used for business affairs.
Local focus, too
The Boeing Dreamliner announcement influenced news emerging from Resorts World Las Vegas this week. However, the Strip casino also unveiled something for Nevadans.
Resort World revealed that residents possessing current driver’s licenses could get an array of discounts and bonuses at the resort. Nevadans will get hotel room discounts up to 35% when booked through the facility’s website.
In addition, Nevadans qualify to receive 20% off food and non-alcoholic drinks from Monday to Friday, excluding holidays. The offer is valid at 15 restaurants inside the lounging resort.
It is possible that a new Genting US equity could be fully focused on Resorts World Las Vegas, or that it could be a support firm consisting of that facility, New York assets, Resorts World Bimini Resort and Marina in the Bahamas, and a 30-acre parcel of land in Miami the firm owns.
