Changes at McCarran Airport that affect you
In late June, McCarran opened its long awaited Terminal 3 (T3). What does this mean for you? Terminal 1 remains open but Terminal 2 is now closed. With this new terminal, international travel to Las Vegas has never been easier. Seven of the terminal’s 14 gates will serve international carriers, including Copa Airlines from Panama, which will bring first-ever regular service to Las Vegas from Central and South America. Terminal 3’s Customs and Border Protection area can process 2,000 international passengers an hour, more than twice the amount of Terminal 2, the airport’s former international hub.
See McCarran’s site for a list of international and domestic carriers affected by this change and the expanded services now at McCarran.
