Monthly passenger traffic steady in January at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas


LAS VEGAS — Passenger traffic at McCarran International Airport held steady last month compared with January 2014.

The monthly numbers released Thursday showed an overall increase of about 11,000 passengers at the airport in Las Vegas — a gain of three-tenths of 1 percent to 3.3 million.

Nearly 43 million travelers passed through McCarran last year, the fourth consecutive year of growth and the most since 44 million in 2008.

Airport officials say a 12.5 percent increase in international travelers helped fuel that increase.

International travel last month was 4.5 percent head of January a year ago.
