McCarran International Airport officials on Monday offered suggestions to make travel less stressful during the busy Thanksgiving holiday.
Travelers should arrive at McCarran at least two hours before they are scheduled to leave Las Vegas, the airport said. Wait times are expected to increase for those checking bags and going through Transportation Security Administration lines.
It also may take longer to find a parking space. Both the Terminal 1 long-term garage and the Terminal 3 economy lot are likely to reach capacity, the airport said. If so, customers will be redirected to available parking facilities. Long-term garage parking at terminals 1 and 3 is available for up to $16 per day.
Economy parking for Terminal 1 is available for $10 a day at 576 Kitty Hawk Way, just south of Tropicana Avenue and west of Paradise Road. Shuttle service to Terminal 1 is available, but travelers are told to set aside an extra 30 minutes if they plan on parking there.
Economy parking for Terminal 3, also $10 a day, is just east of the terminal’s parking garage. Signs will direct drivers to where they need to go, the airport said.
Parking information and live updates on space availability can be found at 702-261-5122.
The airport advises incoming travelers to wait by the curb at passenger pickup. Drivers can pull into short-term parking if their party has not yet arrived. The first 15 minutes are free.
