About 3.8 million Vegas travelers flew through McCarran Airport in October, up from last year


LAS VEGAS — Airport officials say 3.8 million travelers flew into and out of Las Vegas in October, more than the same month a year ago.

Officials with McCarran International Airport said Tuesday that the number of travelers was up 3.4 percent compared to October 2013.

Southwest Airlines ferried the most passengers during the month followed by United, Delta, American and Spirit airlines.

Travelers flying internationally — about 322,000 — account for nearly 9 percent of all of October's passengers.

That's 21 percent more international passengers than there were last October.

The airport has seen 2.5 percent more passengers in the first 10 months of the year compared to 2013.
