Charter Flights to Mayweather vs. McGregor, Las Vegas
On August 26 2017, undefeated legendary boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. will take on the ”notorious” Conor McGregor at the T-Mobile arena, Las Vegas Strip. Just four years ago 28-year-old Dublin-born McGregor was signing up for government benefits, having previously trained as a plumber. Now, he is set to take on boxing great Mayweather in just one month’s time. Be sure to make an entrance by arranging a luxury private jet charter to Las Vegas to witness this once-in-a-lifetime super-fight.
The Super-Fight: Mayweather vs. McGregor
American boxing champion, Floyd Mayweather Jr., is a five-division World Champion with a 49-0 professional boxing record, widely held as one of the most prolific boxers of all time. Now aged 40 and retired since 2015, Mayweather is entering the ring for one final time to take on McGregor in this extraordinary match. Mayweather has reportedly demanded $100m for the fight, which is rumoured to have been matched by McGregor.
Mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter, Conor McGregor, is currently one of the highest earning UFC MMA fighters, best known for defeating José Aldo in 2015 for the UFC featherweight title. Aldo had not been beaten for 10 years, but McGregor brought him down in just 13 seconds. MMA fighters can use a variety of techniques from Muay Thai to Jiu Jitsu – boxing is one style that is incorporated into UFC, but there is a massive contrast between the two sports. McGregor has no boxing experience under his belt, with the World Boxing Association (WBA) refusing to endorse the cross-sport Mayweather vs. McGregor match.
Whilst he may be at the top of his game, over-ambitious would be an understatement when it comes to the task McGregor has set for himself. Not only will he have to fight in a new style, he will also be wearing boxing gloves which are significantly heavier than UFC gloves. With the odds stacked against him, it’s no wonder that the bookies have been backing Mayweather to win. Limited tickets are still on sale with prices starting at $2084 for Row R tickets.
Charter flights from New York to Las Vegas
Make sure that you don’t miss out on the fight that’s set to go down in boxing history. Fly to Las Vegas from JFK Airport, New York, in under five hours or from London in under 11 hours. Air Charter Service provide a range of private and business jets that can be tailored to your needs for a bespoke experience. Benefit from private terminals and executive lounges for a seamless, stress-free journey with reduced boarding times. Light jets such as the Cessna Citation Bravo can accommodate up to seven passengers, or if you are travelling as a couple you may prefer a super light jet. Expansive cabin interiors, technological enhancements and luxury seating are all to be expected, and ACS will organise your choice of on-board catering.
The T-Mobile Arena on the Las Vegas strip is only a 10-minute drive from McCarran Airport, making it super-easy if you’re flying in directly for the fight. Another option if you want to avoid the crowds of McCarren, is the Henderson Executive Airport, which is more exclusive and only a 20-minute drive away. Boulder City Municipal Airport is located one mile from the central business district of Boulder City in Clark County. This is a great option if you want to take in the sights of the Grand Canyon via private jet. As the boxing match of the the century, expected to draw crowds of up to 20,000 people, we recommend that you arrive in good time. ACS can arrange for a chauffeur to meet you at your airport of choice to make sure your trip gets off to the best start possible.
What to see in Las Vegas
A trip to Las Vegas wouldn't be complete without exploring the Strip and trying your luck at one of the Vegas mega casinos. Experience the thrill of the MGM Grand Las Vegas, which features 2,500 slot machines, and the MGM Grand Poker Room, the strip’s number one spot for Texas Hold'em. With private lounges, tableside massages, super-clubs and a six-acre pool, this is a Vegas rite of passage. Or why not take a gondola ride from St Mark's Square or dine in the Eiffel Tower Restaurant? Vegas isn’t known as the entertainment capital of the world for nothing.
If you have time, make the most of your trip and visit the Grand Canyon – tours depart regularly from the Strip. Also just 17 miles west is the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area.

Red sandstone cliffs against blue skies are a world away from the neon lights of the Strip and provide a breath of fresh air.
