 Las Vegas' McCarran International Airport is debuting its new international hub today, the $2.4 billion Terminal 3. Seven of the new terminal's gates have been designed to accommodate international air service, including secured access to a U.S. Customs & Border Protection area capable of processing up to 2,000 international passengers per hour. The new terminal is expected to ease congestion in the airport significantly. Terminal 1 was built to handle 42 million passengers annually, a figure that has been exceeded in recent years.
