LAS VEGAS, NV - OCTOBER 04: A plane takes off from McCarran International Airport near the site of the Route 91 Harvest country music festival on October 4, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The annual music festival was interrupted when a lone gunman opened fire on the crowd killing at least 59 people and injuring more than 500.

More than 1.8 million travelers passed through the Las Vegas airport in November, a slight drop from October and less than half the pre-pandemic traffic the airport saw a year earlier.

McCarran International Airport reported Monday that number of passengers tallied in November 2020 was 57% lower than November 2019.

Air travel has been among the hospitality and visitor industries in Nevada that’s been hit hard by the coronavirus outbreak.

The passengers that did pass through McCarran last month were almost all domestic travelers. The number of international passengers at the airport has fallen 94% from 2019, down to just 19,000 travelers.

McCarran has recorded about 21 million passengers to date this year. That’s less than half the 47 million recorded by the same point in 2019.
