November passenger traffic at McCarran down from last year

28 December 2012

By Tim O'Reiley

LAS VEGAS -- Following the trend that started at mid-year, passenger traffic at McCarran International Airport declined slightly in November compared to one year ago.

During the month, the 3.3 million people who flew in and out of Las Vegas marked a 0.3 percent decrease. For the 11 months to day, the passenger count of 38.5 million was 0.6 percent higher than the same period in 2011, based on stronger results in winter and spring.

International traffic in November rose 6 percent to 254,000 passengers. But that only partially offset the 0.7 percent fall among domestic carriers to 3 million.

Since more than 40 percent of Las Vegas visitors fly in, the McCarran results are a closely watch barometer of the Strip's economic health.
