ChiliPoker And GO Voyages Partners In Paris to Las Vegas Direct Flight Venture

Maltese-based ChiliPoker has entered an innovative exclusive partnership with GO Voyages, who will be organising direct flights from Paris to Las Vegas using XL Airways next year.
ChiliPoker began its online poker operation in 2006 and has now grown into a well respected site which also organises the WPT Marrakesh. French founder of Alexandre Dreyfus said:
“Las Vegas is one of those destinations people dream of, but which appear inaccessible. As an online poker site we felt it appropriate to offer an answer to these dreams by offering all non-English speaking Europeans, and in particular the French, a chance to enjoy a unique experience.”   
The 23rd May 2010 will see the start of twice weekly flights from Paris Charles de Gaulle, with the emphasis on catering to the needs of tourists and poker players from across Europe. As part of the overall service, customers will be offered a free VIP counter in Las Vegas with multilingual staff ready to assists tourists with a range of requirements including restaurant reservations, limousines and tourist excursions.
The flights, which will be departing Paris Thursdays and Sundays, will also give tourists the freedom to plan for either short trips or stays of ten days or longer. Commenting on the company’s goals going forward, Alexandre Dreyfus said:
“We hope that with the future regulation of the online gaming market in France, which is set to become effective before 23 May 2010, ChiliPoker can occupy a significant place in this new market. From now on, Las Vegas will form an integral part of our marketing strategy in Europe for 2010.”
ChiliPoker will be promoting their exclusive new deal by refunding 75 Euros  to all its account holders for each ticket reserved between 15 November and 31 December 2009.
