How to Find Cheap Air Tickets to or from Las Vegas
Flying in and out of Las Vegas is a breeze, largely because of the proximity of McCarran International Airport to The Strip. By the time you pick up your bags you are almost at your hotel, and that is very good news for business or pleasure travel. Of course, you will need to walk by the rows and rows of slot machines between your gate and the baggage claim area, and if you have money burning a hole in your pocket those slots might be hard to pass by without playing. Just remember there are more places to spend money in Las Vegas than just the airport, so you might want to save some for later. If you are looking for things to keep you busy between meetings or casinos, be sure to check out the Las Vegas Travel Guide for all the latest goings-on in Sin City.
McCarran’s airport code is LAS, and it serves as a hub for US Airways and Allegiant Air, and is the largest base of operations for Southwest Airlines, so those are the airlines to keep an eye out for when checking for special deals on airline tickets. Southwest is the airline which carries more people in and out of Las Vegas than any other. McCarran is located a scant five miles south of the central business district of Las Vegas, and you will find a list of airlines that serve LAS here. Flight schedules for incoming or outgoing flights can be monitored here, and there is a detailed airport guide (including an airport map) here. It is not clear whether every slot machine is highlighted on the map, but you will not have to look hard to find one – there are more than 1300 throughout the airport. Should you want to do something other than gamble at the airport, you can find your dining options here and shopping options here. WiFi service is offered for free in the boarding areas and in most of the airport’s public areas as well. Other services available at the airport are listed here. Your ground transportation choices are here, and if you are driving to McCarran you can save time and money on Las Vegas airport parking by booking it in advance.
