McCarran International Airport’s C Concourse to undergo renovation
This renovation is an example of McCarran International Airport’s commitment to enhancing the customer experience.
The C Concourse at McCarran International Airport, known as the Las Vegas base of operations for Southwest Airlines, will soon receive a significant renovation.
Planned changes include new fixtures that will create more space for passengers, updated flooring and more amenities; establishing a more consistent experience throughout Terminal 1.
“With the recent decrease in passenger traffic, we were presented with an opportunity to complete a major project with minimal impact on travellers,” said Rosemary Vassiliadis, Clark County Director of Aviation. “The enduring allure of Las Vegas leaves no doubt that we will soon be welcoming more visitors back. When they return, we look forward to greeting them with a more spacious and easily navigated C Concourse.”
This renovation will be achieved with the installation of additional and more convenient charging stations for devices; replacing the existing carpet with new, easier to maintain terrazzo flooring and Gerflor; and maximising the hold rooms by swapping out the current gate podiums with smaller, space-efficient models.
The $13 million project will begin on 30 September 2020 with an anticipated completion date of late summer 2021. Throughout the duration of the work, the majority of Southwest flights will operate out of the B Concourse. Staggered gate closures will allow the C Concourse to remain partially operational. However, to ensure passengers pass through the most convenient TSA checkpoint, travellers should double check their flight’s departing gate prior to arriving at McCarran.
