Terminals at the airport

Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas has two primary passenger terminals: Terminal 1 and Terminal 3. Below you find information about both terminals and their gates.

Terminal 1 – Concourses A, B, C and D

Terminal 1 is divided into four concourses – Concourse A with 16 gates, Concourse B with 17 gates, Concourse C with 19 gates and Concourse D which is shared with Terminal 3 and has 48 gates. The terminal houses a variety of dining, shopping and passenger services including ticketing, baggage claim and security checkpoints. It also features slot machines, reflecting the city’s gaming culture.

Terminal 3 – Concourse E

Concourse E has 14 gates designed to handle international and some domestic flights. The terminal is equipped with advanced facilities for international travelers, including customs and immigration, extensive dining and shopping options and lounges. Terminal 3 is designed to enhance the experience for long-haul passengers with additional comfort and amenities.

Inter-terminal transportation – choose bus or tram

If you want to get from one terminal to another, you can use the airport's inter-terminal shuttle service or automated tram system. The inter-terminal shuttle bus is a free service that runs frequently between the terminals. It's particularly useful for passengers needing to travel between Terminal 1 and Terminal 3 without the need to access specific concourses.

The automated tram connects only the D and E concourses between Terminal 1 and Terminal 3, making it a good option for passengers with connecting flights in these concourses. It operates continuously and is a faster option than the shuttle bus. The bus takes about 10-15 minutes, while the tram has a travel time of just a couple of minutes.

Luggage routine when connecting at LAS

If you are changing flights at LAS, the luggage handling routine depends on your ticketing and which airlines are involved. Below you can learn about the most common options.

Single ticket connections

If your flights are booked under one ticket, your checked bags will usually be sent through to your final destination automatically. For international to domestic connections, you’ll clear customs at your first point of entry in the US. After customs, luggage is often rechecked automatically.

Multiple ticket or different airlines

In this case you might need to collect and recheck your baggage yourself, particularly if changing airlines or tickets. This process requires exiting and re-entering secure areas, so allow extra time.
