McCarran International Airport offers numerous technologies to make your trip more enjoyable, including free Wi-Fi, mobile check-in, self-service kiosks and bag tagging, and CLEAR pre-security check. Read on for more.

Stay connected on the go with fast, free Wi-Fi throughout all public areas of McCarran, including the Rent-A-Car Center.

Check in online and use your mobile device as a digital boarding pass. If you’re not checking luggage, skip the lines at Ticketing/Check-In and go straight to security and on to your gate. Contact your airline for more information.


For your convenience, self-service kiosks are available for check-in. The touchscreen kiosks are easy to use and can speed your departure by giving you control over the check-in process. All of the kiosks are ADA compliant.

Here's how they work.

Select Airline  

Step 1: Using the touch screen menu, select an airline from a list of participating carriers.

Select Retrieve  

Step 2: Select the method by which you will retrieve your airline reservation.

Select Payment Method  

Step 3: Once the airline’s reservation system displays, insert a credit card or driver’s license or scan your passport or boarding pass, then follow the step-by-step instructions to complete your airline’s check-in process.

Take Boarding Pass  

Step 4: The machine will print a boarding pass. Take the boarding pass and proceed to the security checkpoint if you do not have checked luggage. If you have checked luggage, stop by the ticket counter or use the self-tagging option if available.



The self-tagging option on our check-in kiosks allows passengers to check and tag their own bags. McCarran uses a technologically advanced Radio-frequency identification system to provide secure tracking of your checked bags. Check with your airline for self-tagging availability.
