Las Vegas Airport airport was first established back in 1942 by an American aviator, George Crockett, as Alamo Airport. Clark County later purchased the airfield from Crockett so that they could be able to establish a public airport for the county. This led to the renaming of the airport to McCarran Field, after a long-serving Nevada politician Senator Pat McCarran who played a major role in the development of aviation nationally.

At the time Las Vegas airport was only serving 1.5 million passengers a year. The airport was later expanded in 1982, funded by a $300 million bond issue. This was done through a three-phase plan

that included building a nine- level parking facility, additional gates, a new central terminal, runway expansion and addition, a revamped road to the airport, and an upgraded passenger assistance facility. Currently, Las Vegas airport has two operational passenger terminals. Terminal 1 is the domestic terminal and has concourses A-D and an Esplanade that leads to all gates. Terminal 3 is the international terminal. There is an exterior sidewalk that connects these two terminals and there is also a courtesy shuttle that has been provided by the airport to transport travelers between these terminals.

Las Vegas Airport is the ninth busiest airport in the United Sates with nearly 52 million passengers.

Las Vegas Airport opened in in November 1920 and is located 5 miles (8.0 km) from downtown.

Las Vegas airport serves Las Vegas City and the neighboring Clark County in Southern Nevada. With four runways and an estimated 51.5 million passengers a year, McCarran Airport serves as a focus city for Allegiant & Southwest airlines and it is also served by a huge number of domestic and international airlines offering direct and connecting flights to all points worldwide.
In 2019 Las Vegas airport was ranked No. 9 in the United States in terms of passenger traffic with almost 51,537,638 million passengers passing through the facility. The maximum capacity is estimated to be 53 million and the aircraft movement is estimated at 625,000. The airport does not require any funding from the County’s general fund as it is self-sufficient.
