McCarran Airport T3 expansion nears completion

McCarran International Airport is preparing to welcome the first flights into its new Terminal 3 expansion in five weeks time. The initiatve is the largest capital improvement project in the airport’s 63 year history.

In anticipation of the opening a new printable guidebook is now available online including general facts on McCarran Airport as well as information on shopping, dining, maps and driving directions.

“Interest in Terminal 3 extends around the world, are we’re excited to present its key details before potential travelers and other airport aficionados,” said Randall H. Walker, Director of Aviation for Clark County.

“We look forward to introducing T3 to the traveling public on June 27, but in advance of that date this guidebook will provide an interesting sneak peek of what’s in store for many travellers who will soon fly in and out of Las Vegas.”

Terminal 3 is a nearly 1.9 million-square-foot unit terminal that includes additional check-in, baggage claim, security checkpoints and parking to complement McCarran’s existing infrastructure and relieve peak period congestion at Terminal 1.


In addition to its seven domestic and seven international aircraft gates, T3 will also support passenger traffic at up to 26 gates in the nearby D
Concourse, located just 45 seconds from T3 by way of an underground tram.
