Airport info

McCarran International Airport (LAS)

Las Vegas' main airport is no different than any other major airport in the world, except they're probably a little better at efficiently dealing with large crowds, mostly because they have the chance to practice every single day.

For those arriving from domestic locations it's an easy matter of finding the baggage claim. Look for the signs or, more obviouly, just follow the crowd. More than likely you'll hitch a ride on a tram and still arrive at the baggage carousel ahead of your luggage.

International flights land in Terminal 2. From here there's a bus to Terminal 1 where taxis and other ground transportation is found.

Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the airport, and the standard warnings about basic precautions apply.

Taxis are available from the cab stand outside exits 1-4. The line is often very long, but generally moves very quickly.

Several hotels offer off-site check-in at the airport and, for a small fee, will deliver your bags directly to your hotel and give you a chance to buy show tickets, make restaurant reservations and the like.

    Making your way from the Las Vegas airport to your hotel is very easy. The area for taxis and shuttle buses is clearly mapped and while the line for a cab may seem long, it usually moves fast. More helpful information about cabs is found on our Taxi Fare Estimator page.

    Aran, there is a city bus that runs from the airport to the Strip -- look for the 108 or 109, or ask airport information staff which to take -- but I don't recommend it. It's slow as all get out and a pain in the ass. Taxis are the fastest option, but charter shuttle bus services are only a little more expensive than the city bus and much less of a hassle.

    Are there any buses or public transport from the airport to the strip? Save queuing up for a taxi?

    Thanks Steve the Texan. I'll keep that in mind.

    There are several Strip hotels that offer airport checkin. To be honest, though, I've never seen it save much time, if any.

    I understand that I can check-in to the Treasure Island Hotel @ the Airport. Is this Correct?

    Thanx Much,
    Pete
