Whether you visit Las Vegas for its nightlife, casinos or to get married, it’s good to know that flights from Atlanta to Las Vegas are easy to find. And the fares are affordable and don’t vary much from month to month. It’s good to avoid the national holidays weekends but otherwise, finding a cheap flight from Atlanta to Las Vegas is just as easy as losing money in casinos.
Las Vegas is served by McCarran International Airport, a major hub for Southwest Airlines and a smaller hub for US Airways. The airport receives numerous flights both from other cities in the States and from major cities from all over the world. It’s a good idea to ask at the hotel if they provide a shuttle. Otherwise, you can choose between taxis and limousines available at the airport. And, of course, there’s always the possibility to rent a car.
When you flight out of Atlanta you’ll be using Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, located about 8 miles from downtown. It’s considered to be the busiest airport in the world, due to being the primary hub for Delta Air Lines. The airport is also major hub for AirTran Airways and Atlantic Southeast Airlines.
Best airline choices
Direct flights from Atlanta to Las Vegas are offered by Delta Air Lines and AirTran Airways. Indirect flights are also offered by the following carriers:
- US Airways

Typically, the ticket prices for flights from Atlanta to Las Vegas don’t vary much from month to month. But if you do plan to fly during national holidays or peak tourist season you will pay a bit more for your flight.
The fares don’t vary much whether you choose a direct or indirect flight. If you plan to fly during mid-September, fares range between $238 for a round trip direct flight on Delta and $228-$267 for a round trip indirect flight (depending on the carrier).
Money saving tips
Typically, it’s a good idea to start your search with the discount websites such as Expedia, Hotwire, Travelocity and Priceline. They make it easy to compare fares and choose the best flight to match your plans. Of course, you can also check the airlines which use the two airports as hubs. Chances are they will have some sort of a deal available.
Being flexible always pays off. Try to fly mid week and outside the peak season, especially national holidays. If you don’t mind spending some time in airports, you can also look at the indirect flights between the two cities. The fares are about the same as those for direct flights but in some cases you might find cheaper alternatives.
Typically the cheapest fares can be found if you book 2 to 8 weeks before departure so it’s a good idea to book in advance. However, sometimes there are last minute offers available but no one should relay on luck.
