LAS VEGAS MCCARRAN AIRPORT - NORTH LAS VEGAS AIRPORT

Las Vegas AirportLas Vegas Airport – Las Vegas has multiple options for air travel. Most travellers will use McCarran International Airport. Hundreds of thousands of people come through McCarran every year, hundreds per day. Many of the air tour companies utilize the other three airports, the two airfields or the aviation center. This makes travel to and from Las Vegas very easy and convenient.

McCarran International Airport is located minutes from the Strip. It is easily accessed from Interstate 15, which runs through Las Vegas and the Strip, as well as other major thoroughfares. McCarran is simply laid out, despite its status as an international airport. It is easy to navigate, and runs quite efficiently. Nearly every major airline, and most of the smaller, independent airlines, offer flights in and out of McCarran. Additionally, many of these airlines offer special travel discounts and fares for Las Vegas vacations.

Las Vegas AirportMcCarran features many duty-free shops for souvenirs, as well as a variety of dining establishments. Every major car rental company has space in McCarran, and public transportation, as well as Complementary Hotel Shuttles, frequently ferry tourists about. All services are available at McCarran: Internet access, quiet rooms, smoking areas, bathrooms, ATMs, telephones and baggage transport for those who need help with their luggage.

For those who want a more “down home” experience, the North Las Vegas Airport is situated at the north end of Las Vegas (opposite the southern-sitting McCarran International Airport). This airport is much smaller, and also open to the public. It is a great place for smaller aircraft, especially for those who fly their own planes.

North Las Vegas Airport features an outdoor observation deck. It is a fun place to watch the airplanes. However, shade is in short supply. During the hot summer months the observation deck may not be particularly comfortable. But it is a pleasant experience the rest of the year. North Las Vegas Airport also features the Flight Deck Restaurant. The restaurant features a full breakfast, lunch and dinner menu, with traditional German dishes served after 5 p.m. It may not offer the shopping experience of McCarran, but the North Las Vegas Airport has its own charms.

Other aviation options in Las Vegas include:

Henderson Executive Airport
Ivanpah Airport
Jean Sport Aviation Center
Overton-Perkins Field
