Passengers travelling from Las Vegas McCarran International Airport can now make use of a number of innovative self-service solutions following the opening of the brand new $2.4 billion Terminal 3.

The new 1.9 million sq ft terminal opened for operations yesterday (27 June) to traditional Vegas-style fanfare. Among the key features are self-boarding gates, which allow passengers to board themselves without the assistance of an agent, as well as self-service kiosks that offer passengers the option of printing and attaching their own bag tags.

A number of video screens displaying information on destination cities are also in place across the 14 gates, while passengers can also make use of free Wi-Fi in the terminal building.

To ensure that passengers are processed as efficiently as possible, the new Terminal 3 boasts two Transportation Security Administration (TSA) checkpoints with space for a total of 31 lanes.
