One of the largest aerial tour companies in Las Vegas has flown its last pleasure flight.
Sundance Helicopters announced it has closed down its tourism operations due to the sharp downturn in business caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Its closure is effective immediately.
“The Covid-19 pandemic caused a steep drop in tourism in the Las Vegas area and forced Sundance Helicopters to close for commercial tours for several months,” the company said.
“The continued loss in revenue and lack of visitors to Las Vegas necessitated the decision to permanently close.”
However it will continue offering ‘contractual charter work.’
“We are grateful to our entire team and each guest that joined us over the years,” Sundance said in a statement.
At its peak it operated 25 helicopters.
It originally began offering aerial tours of the Las Vegas Strip and then expanded to tours to the West Rim of the Grand Canyon.
