More Direct International Flights Makes Traveling to the United States easy
Las Vegas continues to be one of the fastest-growing American markets for direct international flights. With Harry Reid International Airport’s T-3 terminal, Las Vegas has added more international gate capacity, a considerably larger Federal Inspection Services facility capable of accommodating as many as 2,200 passengers per hour, and increased baggage handling capabilities. Harry Reid International was also one of the first airports in the United States to install Automated Passport Control kiosks or APCs allowing visitors arriving from approved countries a more streamlined arrival process.
All of the above, coupled with the close proximity of the airport to the world-famous Las Vegas Strip and the Venetian Expo, makes traveling in and out of Las Vegas from international cities easier than ever.
