McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas can trace its roots to the 1940s, when it shuttled roughly 1.5 million passengers in and out of Sin City each year. Over the years, the airport has grown along with Las Vegas and the airline industry, building new terminals and conducting renovations to cater to the needs of the more than 41 million travelers that now pass through the airport each year.
In 2007, McCarran embarked upon its most ambitious project to date – the construction of a new 1.9-million-square-foot, $2.4 billion terminal that would host international and domestic flights. After five years of construction, McCarran’s Terminal #3 (T3) opened earlier this year. T3 includes 14 gates, seven of which are dedicated to international flights.
“Employing 1800 people at its peak, the McCarran T3 project positions Las Vegas for the demanding growth in international and domestic travel, and our region as the premier tourism destination,” said David Bourgon, manager of airport IT services at McCarran Airport.
Unlike many other destination cities, Las Vegas is a year-round attraction for visitors from all over the world. McCarran welcomes an average of more than 114,000 passengers a day, who bring with them more than 500 tons of cargo.
