LAS VEGAS (AP) — More than 3.5 million passengers came through McCarran International Airport in May, an indicator that Las Vegas is inching toward a post-pandemic comeback.
Airport officials on Friday released data from last month showing a significant bounce in foot traffic at Las Vegas' main airport. The total number of travelers was 600,000 more than in April, according to the Clark County Department of Aviation.
The 3.5 million travelers in May, however, is a roughly 23% decrease from the more than 4.5 million seen in May 2019.
For the year-to-date, McCarran has received more than 12 million passengers. That is a 41% drop from 2019, which saw 20.7 million.
