Host: McCarran International Airport

Future Travel Experience is delighted to once again be working with McCarran International Airport, which hosted our first ever event back in 2006. McCarran International Airport is the principal commercial airport serving Las Vegas and Clark County, Nevada, United States. The airport is five miles (8 km) south of downtown Las Vegas, in the unincorporated area of Paradise in Clark County. It covers 2,800 acres and has four runways. McCarran is owned by Clark County and operated by the Clark County Department of Aviation (DOA). McCarran Airport serves as a hub for Great Lakes Airlines. It is a focus city for Allegiant Air and Southwest Airlines, and is the largest operation base for both Allegiant and Southwest. It is named after the former Nevada Senator Pat McCarran (1876-1954).

Las Vegas McCarran International Airport is among the top ten busiest airports in the US and is consistently at the forefront of technology. It is a leading implementation site for CUSS, CUPPS, RFID for baggage, self-boarding and self-tagging, and its offsite “Airport SpeedCheck Advance” check-in programme continues to expand and now includes several locations across the city where passengers can check-in their luggage and obtain their boarding passes.

Delegates will get to see all the latest passenger initiatives in action during their visit to FTE Global 2017, as McCarran will be facilitating tours of its impressive T3 facility, which opened in June 2012 to great acclaim from the industry and passengers.
