Vegas airport passenger traffic up 3.9 percent

McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas is continuing to report increases in monthly passenger traffic compared with a year ago.

A tally released Tuesday by the airport shows some 3.3 million passengers arrived and departed in November, up about 124,000 or 3.9 percent from November 2010.

The airport is the nation's eighth-busiest by passenger volume.

The figures show it's on pace to top 40 million passengers for the year, after falling short of that mark a year ago.

Southwest, American, Continental and US Airways reported handling more passengers in November than a year earlier. Delta handled 1.4 percent fewer passengers.
