The Venetian has partnered with McCarran Airport to introduce Airport SpeedCheck Advance, a cutting edge service that allows guests to bypass airport lines by checking their luggage and receiving their boarding passes directly on the property.

This exclusive service, administered by Bags To Go Inc., is ideal for all travelers, especially for those with late afternoon or evening flights, after suite check-out time has passed. Travelers will be able to enjoy their spare time at The Venetian without carrying around obtrusive luggage. Additionally, waiting time in airport lines is cut in half as travelers now have the luxury of arriving at the airport one hour in advance opposed to the suggested three hour arrival time.

"As the first property on The Strip offering our guests a secure and reliable way to process luggage for the trip home, we continue to advance our mission of providing unmatched service and excellence to all that stay with us," stated Paul Pusateri, senior vice president of The Venetian. "When the team at McCarran Airport explained the fundamentals of this service and how safe and convenient it would be for our guests, we didn't hesitate to sign on. With Airport SpeedCheck Advance kiosks, we will continue to provide services not found anywhere else and ensure an outstanding benefit for our visitors -- even at the end of their stay."

To take advantage of this service, guests simply need to bring their luggage to the Airport SpeedCheck Advance kiosk, located in the Convention Center adjacent to the Package Center. Just like the airport, the following rules apply:

- Customers must provide - in person - a valid government-issued ID at time of check-in (driver's license, passport, military ID, etc.)

- Luggage must be dropped off at least three hours prior to scheduled departure, on the calendar day of departure; flight departure time must be between 7 a.m. and 11:59 p.m.

- The check-in counter is open between 5:30 a.m. and 3 p.m., seven days a week.

- A service fee of $20 per passenger (up to three pieces of luggage per passenger) will be charged. Additional fees will apply for oversized or overweight luggage.

- All FAA regulations are enforced
