As directed by the governor of Nevada, all travelers and employees at LAS are required to wear a face covering.

What LAS is Doing to Protect Passengers and Employees
  • Our custodial teams are deploying hospital-grade disinfectant on all high-touch surfaces around the airport, such as kiosks, escalators, door handles, etc. The disinfectant in use is recommended by the CDC to combat COVID-19 and is being applied in the highest concentration for maximum impact.
  • Hand sanitizer dispensers are conveniently located throughout the airport.
  • To allow time for cleaning between trips, inter-terminal shuttles now operate every 20-30 minutes. Economy Lot buses run every half hour. Shuttle buses are sanitized throughout the day, and each bus is fumigated weekly. As directed by the governor, shuttle bus capacity is limited to 25 percent.
  • Seating at food courts is limited to four people per table. Customers must keep their masks on unless actively eating or drinking.
Social Distancing
  • We ask that only ticketed travelers and employees enter the terminals. Greet loved ones at Passenger Pickup, and say goodbye at the curb.
  • Floor decals and signs displayed in our facilities remind travelers to stay six feet apart. Overhead announcements reinforce the message.
Passenger Health Screening

The CDC is only screening passengers arriving on flights from certain origins. That screening is taking place at 15 designated U.S. airports. McCarran is not one of them.

Tips for Travelers
  • Limit face-to-face interactions by checking in at home and using a mobile boarding pass.
  • All travelers and employees are required to wear a mask that covers the nose and mouth. Signs and overhead announcements serve as reminders of the governor's mandate.
  • Masks may be purchased in news and gift stores and from PPE vending machines. Free masks are available at Information Booths.
  • Travel with a carry-on only and be sure to pack hand sanitizer.

We have consolidated operations in our parking areas.

  • The Terminal 1 Economy Lot is temporarily closed.
  • Valet is available only at Terminal 1.
