Vegas Airport to Jet Owners: Plan Parking in Advance for Mayweather-McGregor Fight
Officials from McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, Nevada, have asked the owners of corporate planes to make parking reservations ahead of time if they are planning to attend the upcoming fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor.
Christine Crews, a spokesperson from the airport, told the Associated Press that jet owners and operators are also able to use nearby airports in Henderson and North Las Vegas for parking. According to Crews, an influx of aircrafts forced McCarran Airport to use a taxiway to park private jets at the time of the Mayweather fight with Manny Pacquiao in May 2015.
The highly-anticipated fight between undefeated boxer Mayweather Jr. and Irish UFC champion McGregor is taking place on the night of Aug. 26. No matter the outcome, each man will reportedly take home more than $100 million for the night.
Correction: The original headline for this story implied that McCarran Airport wanted all airplanes to park elsewhere, when it actually wanted people to plan their parking in advance.
