LAS VEGAS — Las Vegas-based Allegiant Air has announced a number of initiatives to help after the mass shooting on the Strip, according to KNTV.
Allegiant will arrange for family members of victims for free travel to Las Vegas. Anyone needing flights to Las Vegas are asked to email the airline.
The airline is also reaccommodating Las Vegas travelers who want to change their plans this week without change fees.
Allegiant’s customer care team is reaching out to customers staying at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino or other hotels in the immediate area of the shooting and reaccommodating to other hotels as needed or desired.
In addition, Allegiant’s maintenance staff at McCarran International Airport provided shelter and safe space overnight for about 30 individuals who had fled the concert site.
They were able to help people clean up, get them clothes, help them charge phones and make contact with loved ones.
The man police say killed at least 59 people on the Las Vegas Strip was identified as Stephen Paddock, a retired accountant who enjoyed playing $100-a-hand poker, his brother said.
He was 64 years old and lived in Mesquite, Nevada, a retiree community about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas. He had previously lived in the Orlando, Florida, area.
