LAS VEGAS (AP) - More Britons may be heading to Las Vegas this

British Airways says it is adding a new nonstop daily flight between McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas and London's Heathrow Airport. The service will begin in late October.

Airline officials say they consider Las Vegas a growth opportunity for the company, despite the slowdown in the tourism industry. British Airways flies daily flights to the U.K. from 18 other U.S. cities.

Las Vegas tourism officials welcomed the news. Visitors' bureau vice president Cathy Tull says the flight is a result of a decade of work to bring British Airways to the airport.

British Airways says roundtrip fares in will start at about $460, plus fees and taxes.
