If you’re looking for a parking space at McCarran International Airport over the weekend, the best advice might be to call ahead.
McCarran spokesman Chris Jones said that predicting this year’s Christmas parking peaks is difficult.
“Parking availability will fluctuate hour to hour,” he said Tuesday. “If someone arrived at the airport at 6 in the morning on any given day, the garage may be full,” he said. “But we may have a bank of flights coming in later that morning. Those people will get off the planes, get in their cars and go home. So someone coming at the noon hour may find a space.”
Jones said some people might have left Las Vegas in the days before Christmas and might be returning Friday. Others might be leaving on Christmas Day or after.
“We just don’t know what will be available,” he said.
To best gauge parking-space availability, Jones suggested fliers call McCarran’s parking hot line at 261-5122.
