British Airways' Direct London–Las Vegas Flights

British Airways will open a daily, non-stop route from London's Heathrow Airport to Las Vegas beginning October 25.

Prices will begin at around $900 for a roundtrip ticket, depending on day of travel.

Despite its popularity with British gamblers, Las Vegas has very few direct flights from the UK even though the UK is the number-one international market overseas for visitors to the city, according to UK website Weak Holidays. British travelers looking to go to Vegas usually have to transfer in Frankfurt, it added.

Virgin Atlantic currently offers daily, nonstop flights between London's smaller Gatwick International and Las Vegas, beginning at around $831.
