McCar­ran Inter­na­tional Air­port is the pri­mary com­mer­cial air­port serv­ing the Las Vegas Valley, Nevada. It is located in Par­adise, about 5 miles south of Down­town Las Vegas. It is named after the late US Sen­a­tor Pat McCar­ran, who con­tributed to the devel­op­ment of avi­a­tion both in Las Vegas and on a national scale.

The air­port was built in 1942 and opened to com­mer­cial flights in 1948. It has under­gone sig­nif­i­cant expan­sion since then. The air­port has non­stop air ser­vice to des­ti­na­tions in North Amer­ica, Europe, and Asia. It is an oper­at­ing base for Alle­giant Air, as well as a crew and main­te­nance base for Fron­tier Air­lines, South­west Air­lines, and Spirit Air­lines.

In 2016, 3.49 mil­lion inter­na­tional air­line pas­sen­gers arrived or departed McCar­ran Inter­na­tional — and that number con­tin­ues to grow. McCar­ran recently com­pleted its $51 mil­lion Inter­na­tional Gates Expan­sion project which aims to increase tourism from Asia and Europe by pro­mot­ing direct flights with seven new inter­na­tional gates that can accom­mo­date wide-body air­crafts.

Pas­sen­gers deplan­ing at the newly con­verted inter­na­tional gates are directed into an under­ground tunnel via a new cor­ri­dor with metal panels, ter­razzo floor­ing, and a moving walk­way, which then con­nects to the exist­ing cor­ri­dor system. Selux M60 LED Curved, with its grace­ful curves con­nected with M60 LED lines of light, was chosen to illu­mi­nate the way for these inter­na­tional vis­i­tors. The com­bi­na­tion of M60 LED lumi­naires frames the 995 foot long cor­ri­dor link­ing the D-Gate Con­course to the airport’s US Cus­toms and Border Pro­tec­tion sta­tion in Ter­mi­nal 3.
