Before you pack your bags and cruise down to McCarran International Airport for your Thanksgiving vacation, the airport is urging you to Know Before You Go.
The campaign is aimed at getting travelers to visit www.mccarran.com to check on terminal, parking and flight information.
It's estimated the airport will host 580,000 travelers between Wednesday, Nov. 21 and Monday, Nov. 26, with crowds peaking on Sunday.
Domestic travelers are asked to arrive at least 90 minutes before their flights; international travelers should allow even more time.
"We can't stress enough how important it is for locals to 'Know Before You Go' when flying during this busy time of year," said Randall H. Walker, director of the Clark County Department of Aviation. "With the opening of Terminal 3 just five months ago, much has changed at McCarran since last year's holiday travel season. The most important things for our airport patrons to know are which terminal houses their airline and what is their best parking option. The time saved by being prepared could be the difference between getting out on time or missing a flight."
McCarran has substantially increased its parking capacity with the addition of the 6,000 space T3 parking garage. Both Terminal 1 and Terminal 3 garages offer long-term parking at $14 per day and valet parking for up to $21 per day.
