LAS VEGAS - More than 4.3 million passengers walked through McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas last month.

Local aviation officials on Friday said that's a 2.8 per cent increase compared with June 2017.

Domestic flights carried more than 3.8 million passengers. International carriers transported almost 324,000 passengers, and more than 95,000 people used a helicopter.

Southwest Airlines continued to be the busiest carrier at the airport, transporting more than 1.5 million passengers in June.

Of the top five airlines serving McCarran, only American Airlines saw a decrease in passengers over the year.

Data released by the Clark County Department of Aviation show more than 24.5 million passengers have used McCarran in 2018. That's a 3.1 per cent increase over the year.

The airport set a record high for passengers in 2017 with 48.5 million.
