Located 5 miles south of the central business district of Las Vegas, McCarran International Airport is a very popular choice for corporate jet flights.
In 1942, American aviator George Crockett established Alamo Airport on the land currently occupied by McCarran International. In 1948, Clark County bought the airfield to establish the Clark County Public Airport, and all commercial operations moved to the site of this airport. On December 20, 1948 the airport was renamed McCarran Field, and was already serving 1.5 million passengers a year. Today, McCarran serves about 45 million commercial and corporate jet passengers a year.
Since January 4, 2005, McCarran has offered wireless internet service at no charge in the boarding areas and most other public areas. The airport was the first to provide this as a free service for the entire facility, and at this time was the largest free wireless Internet installation in the world. Las Vegas McCarran airport also houses over 1200 slot machines, and McCarran operated 6 kiosks at Las Vegas Convention Center which allow passengers to conduct their airport business and print documents on the way to the airport.
McCarran is linked by bus to the Consolidated Rental Car Facility, conveniently offering 11 rental car companies and capacity to park 5000 vehicles for use by comercial and corporate jet travelers who need a vehicle. With modern business amenities, convenient proximity to downtown Las Vegas, and the capacity to handle all your corporate jet needs, it's no surprise that McCarran International Airport is the facility of choice for passengers flying into or out of the Las Vegas area.
