Airport check-in facilitated

LAS VEGAS -- Thanks to a new service offered by Certified Airline Passenger Services (CAPS), clients who have rented a car from Alamo Rent A Car at McCarran Airport here can check their bags and obtain a seat assignment and boarding pass at the car rental counter after they have dropped off their rental car.

Alamo is the first car rental company to offer this service, according to Jerome Snyder, CAPS chairman.

With the service, which costs $6 per person for those ages 12 and older, clients can check in from one to 12 hours before their flight and, after arriving at the airport terminal, go directly to the gate of their departing flight.

In other CAPS news, both the Riviera Resort & Casino and the Aladdin Resort & Casino now offer on-site airport check-in for hotel guests who are ready to leave the property.

As with the service at the Alamo car rental counter, clients can check in at the CAPS counter, which is located in each of the resorts, from two to 12 hours before their flight and receive a boarding pass, seat assignment and baggage claim checks. The fee is $6 per person for ages 12 and older.
