JULY was the busiest month to date at Las
Vegas's McCarran International Airport, according to airport
officials. Nearly 4.3 million passengers arrived and departed from
McCarran in July, an increase of almost 5% from July 2006. The
previous record was set in March, when nearly 4.2 million
passengers passed through McCarran. The boom is attributed in part
to the growth of low-fare carriers like Las Vegas-based Allegiant
Air. The burgeoning airline has grown to become the sixth largest
carrier at McCarran, behind Southwest, US Airways, United, Delta
