McCarran International Airport's new Terminal 3, which cost $2.4 billion, is now operational and has had its first flights. One passenger, Hazel Griffin of Oxford, said that the difference between the old Terminal 2 and the new Terminal 3 is like the difference between chalk and cheese. The terminal officially opened on Wednesday, with a ceremony that included the customary speeches, as well as plenty of entertainment.
Virgin Atlantic and three other airlines have already started using the terminal and 11 international carriers will also be moving into it in the coming days. Other passengers also remarked about how much better T3 is compared to T2, which was built more than 20 years ago and houses four gates in a cramped space. Gary Lewe, a Royal Air Force pilot from Edinburgh, said it was much better and much faster to get through than the old T2.
