LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - Baby steps.

McCarran Airport welcomed just over one million passengers in June, according to numbers released on Tuesday by the Clark County Department of Aviation. It was the first time since March that that’s happened. Of course, helping things greatly were the June 4th opening of hotel-casinos on the Strip.

Looking at it month to month, the June numbers were an improvement of more than 250% from May. Still, airport passenger traffic for June was down 77 percent from June of 2019.

Southwest Airlines remains by far the busiest carrier, followed by Allegiant, American, Spirit and Frontier.
