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.
At Future Travel Experience 2012, Samuel Ingalls, Assistant Director of Aviation, Information Systems, Las Vegas McCarran International Airport, will present on ‘How McCarran’s new $2.4 billion T3 will deliver a unique passenger experience to Las Vegas visitors, whilst ensuring they spend at the airport too’.
