Air Travel to Las Vegas Climbs Higher in April, High-Speed Train Planned

Tags: coronavirus, Las Vegas, train.
Posted on 01 June 2021 by "T".

The number of passengers using McCarran International Airport significantly improved in April, a positive outcome for casinos in Las Vegas. Arrivals and departures, however, have sunk by millions compared to the numbers before the pandemic.

According to the statistics that the Clark County Department of Aviation released Tuesday, around 2.9 million people made their way through the airport in April. The total is 331,284 more than the number of arriving and departing passengers in March.

Still, the April 2021 figure is 32% lower compared to the total in April 2019, when 4.3 million passengers used the airport.

According to the Department of Aviation, airport officials are using the 2019 number as reference to show how the area of Las Vegas is recovering from the coronavirus situation. Back in April 2020, only a month after the onset of the pandemic, less than 153,000 passengers used the airport.

So far this year, the year-to-date numbers show 8.6 million arriving and departing passengers have used the airport. By comparison, 16.2 million used McCarran airport by the end of April 2019.

The airport is located at the southeast end of the Las Vegas Strip, near MGM Grand, the Tropicana and other major hotel casinos. The Clark County Commission has voted to change the airport's name to Harry Reid International Airport. Airport officials said the name change is not expected to happen for at least several more months.

High-Speed Train
Since Las Vegas is a remote desert location, air travel is seen as crucial in transporting big numbers of domestic and international visitors to Southern Nevada.

Los Angeles, the nearest major metropolitan area, is around four hours away by car. Interstate 15 connecting Las Vegas to the Los Angeles area sometimes becomes congested, as tourists return to Southern California on weekends.

To help resolve that, an effort is underway to build a high-speed train from Apple Valley, California to Las Vegas. Apple Valley is approximately 90 miles east of Los Angeles.

The above-ground train is projected to travel at 200 mph in a three-hour trip from California's Inland Empire to a location near the Las Vegas Strip. Construction is expected to take three years. The company tasked to build the train said construction could start by end of June.

the numbers are normal considering how things went with the pandemic of this coronavirus. Covid 19 scared a lot of naive people, but it was the restrictions in 2020... which made this airport not have many passengers. Now, the number of people will increase.

It is known that the number of passengers using McCarran International Airport improved significantly in April, a positive result for Las Vegas casinos and for the country in general. Even so, the figure for April 2021 is 32% lower compared to the total for April 2019, the good news is that it has improved compared to the beginning of the pandemic, little by little the economy of some sectors of the industry, hopefully much more can be improved.

it is normal for people to start visiting, because they have been doing this for several hundred years. I mean on a large scale, but then it was harder and now with the plane it is known that it is much easier. The important thing is that people have money. Without them, people will stay at home and this airline will go bankrupt like any other.

I hope this can improve for the well-being of all, it is not easy to be able to deal with the pandemic, the economy cannot grow that way, even with the vaccine it can be infected again, so you must be aware and be protected so that it can end this.

Americans can't wait for the subway to take them to Las Vegas directly from Los Angeles. I think many are afraid to fly and others are bored to drive, but most of them want to enjoy with mirage of casinos in that city from state of Nevada.

google translate is guilty but you do not have the power to understand that, even if i told you a few times. You can't think rationally.
