Vegas Airport Releases Upgrade Guide

LAS VEGAS

With only five weeks remaining before McCarran International Airport welcomes the first flights into its new Terminal 3 expansion, airport officials have released a T3 guidebook, available here. This online guide/media kit will help anyone who is interested in T3 to learn more about the largest capital improvement project in the airport’s nearly 64-year history.

The printable 46-page guide includes general facts on McCarran as well as Terminal 3; maps and driving directions; details on T3’s shopping and dining outlets; airline contact information; a historical recap; director’s message; photos; and details on upcoming pre-opening events, including the June 2 Terminal 3 Fun Run 5k and 10k to benefit at-risk children in Clark County as well as the June 9 Community Open House. It also features photographs and artists’ profiles of the men and women behind Terminal 3’s multiple public art installations.

“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 travelers 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.
