McCarran regularly hosts more than 41 million inbound and outbound travelers each year, and trails only Los Angeles International and John F. Kennedy International airports in its number of “origin and destination” travelers. McCarran is accustomed to processing more than 114,000 travelers every day, with most utilizing the airport’s full range of services, whether it’s parking and baggage claim on the way into Las Vegas or the ticketing lobby and security checkpoints on the way out. Staying busy is their business, but they have not lost sight of doing things the right way. McCarran regularly ranks among the nation’s best-rated airports, including being honored as North America’s best large airport by J.D. Power and Associates.
