Southwest Airlines and Allegiant Air say they are offering free flights to family members of people who were killed or injured in the Las Vegas shooting.
Both airlines were coordinating with local hotels to provide lodging for family members arriving from out of town.
Allegiant Air spokeswoman Hilarie Grey said, “About 30 people fleeing the shooting climbed over fences at McCarran International Airport, run across active runways and took shelter in an Allegiant Air maintenance facility for several hours. The staff have helped them to get back to their normalcy.”
Allegiant is headquartered in Las Vegas whereas Southwest operates about 218 departing flights a day there.
At least 59 people were killed and more than 500 injured when a gunman in a nearby hotel opened fire on the crowd at a country music festival Sunday night.
