July 2017 Busiest Month Ever For Las Vegas Airport

Dorathy Gass

Las Vegas is on mostly everyone’s travel bucket list, and whether you’ve been there one time or hundred, it’s a city that everyone loves to return to … again and again.

So, no doubt, the airport in Sin City has to be one of the busiest around the globe: welcoming visitors to the town and bidding them adieu once their entertainment adventures have come to close.

Interestingly enough, officials at the Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport are reporting some interesting news as of late. They have noted that this past July was the busiest month the little airport has ever seen in its history.

The Clark County Department of Aviation released some interesting figures recently revealing that over 4.3 million individuals travelled in and out of Vegas’ airport in July, an increase of over 3% when you look at July 2016’s numbers.

Of the flyers that were in and out of McCarran International last month, over 3.9 million flew with domestic airlines, while close to 319,000 went with international air carriers. Moreover, when it comes to the air carriers in the top five that fly into the Las Vegas airport, the only one to experience a decrease in passengers over the year was American Airlines.

Travelweek reported that well over 47 million passengers were seen at Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport last year, with the yearly record of 48 million set over a decade ago in 2007. Will the famous airport surpass this number in 2017? The record-setting July 2017 number is a very good start; especially since the airport has six more months to go.

It’s undeniable the lure that Vegas has when it comes to destination spots and just how many people visit the iconic town over and over again, year in and year out. It doesn’t seem that far-fetched that McCann can reach and surpass that 48 million, by year’s end.
