McCarran International Gates Expansion

Las Vegas, Nevada

If tourism is the life-blood of the Las Vegas economy, McCarran Airport is its heart. Its $51 million International Gates Expansion project aims to increase tourism from Asia and Europe by promoting direct flights with seven new international gates that can accommodate wide-body aircrafts. Passengers deplaning at the newly converted international gates are directed, via a new sterile corridor, into an underground tunnel connected to the existing corridor system and customs/border patrol processing facility. Other improvements include a self-boarding system, a new flight information display system, charging stations for electronic devices, and expanded seating areas.
