Harry Reid International Airport

Harry Reid International Airport, also known as LAS, primarily serves Las Vegas. Located about five miles from the city, in the unincorporated town of Paradise, Nevada. Like the city it serves, Harry Reid Airport has grown exponentially over the past century. In its first year at its new Alamo Field location, 1949, Harry Reid served some 35,000 passengers. In 2015, the airport received more than 45 million passengers. Today, it's considered the eighth busiest airport in the entire world by aircraft movements and the 26th by passenger traffic. LAS has direct flights to destinations across North America, Europe, and Asia. Located on Wayne Newton Boulevard (named after the iconic Las Vegas performer, aka Mr. Las Vegas), Harry Reid is only two short miles from the Strip and 15 miles from downtown Las Vegas. Whether you're traveling by taxi, limo, rental car, hotel shuttle, or city bus—the only way in and out of the airport is by the open road. Some long-distance shuttles (to Zion National Park in Utah, for example) are also available. Harry Reid is also home to an Aviation Museum, which celebrates the history of air travel in Las Vegas and is named after Nevada Senator Howard W. Cannon, who helped pass the Airline Deregulation Act of 1978, radically reshaping the industry. And, like nearly every lodging option in the city, Las Vegas's airport is filled with slot machines for passengers over 21 with time and money to spare. After all, it's not Las Vegas without the sound of slot machines in the background.
