Allegiant Air offering free travel for families affected by Las Vegas tragedy

Las Vegas-based airline Allegiant Air is offering help for those impacted by the mass shooting on the Las Vegas Strip.

The airline is arranging for family members of victims of Sunday night's shooting to travel for free to Las Vegas.

Anyone who is involved -- either someone who was at the shooting location or their family members -- can write to communications@allegiantair.com for assistance.

Allegiant is also offering to accommodate Las Vegas travelers who wish to change their plans this week without change fees.

The customer care team is reaching out to customers staying at Mandalay Bay or other hotels in the immediate area and reaccomodating to other hotels as needed or desired.

Allegiant maintenance staff at McCarran also provided shelter and a safe place overnight for about 30 people who fled the concert site, not far from Allegiant's facility on the perimeter of the field. They were able to help people get cleaned up, get them clothes, help charge phones, and make contact with loved ones.
