As Air Travel To Las Vegas Increases, Is McCarran Keeping Up?
Visitor traffic to McCarran International Airport keeps climbing.
Traffic for the month of July was up more than 2.5 percent as compared to the year before.
Data from the first seven months of the year show traffic overall is up more than five percent from 2015 as well.
When you add an upcoming, nonstop flight from McCarran to mainland China later this year, the potential for more visitors can only increase.
But is the airport doing enough to keep up?
