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. No airport in the United States has returned to capacity faster than Las Vegas. In fact, more flights are being added than any other airport every month and passenger counts are setting all-time records. Non-stop international service from Korea recently returned, and British Airways will soon begin regular service from Gatwick as well as Heathrow.
With the addition of Harry Reid International Airport’s new terminal, T-3, 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.
