Employee Parking at McCarran International Airport Over 20,300 employees work at McCarran International Airport (LAS), which includes 1,200 employees in the Clark County Department of Aviation (the operator of LAS). The Department of Aviation provides a total of 3,800 parking spaces for employees. The employee parking system is constrained at LAS. Approximately 3,250 of the spaces dedicated for employee parking are pro- vided in Terminal 1 and the remainder of the available employee parking spaces is provided in Ter- minal 2. The Department of Aviation addresses the constraints by making use of its ample passenger economy lot for employees if needed. Employees using the public lots are charged a reduced rate. (3)
