Philippine Daily Inquirer
MANILA, Philippines—Travelers taking Philippine Airlines (PAL) to Las Vegas, Nevada, will now experience some of the airline industry’s latest technological advances as the US gaming city unveils a new $2.4-billion airport terminal.
PAL started using Las Vegas’ new Terminal 3 on June 28, a day after the inauguration of the 1.9-milllion square-foot, three-story building, billed as the most comprehensive expansion in the history of the city’s McCarran International Airport.
PAL is the only Philippine carrier serving the Manila-Las Vegas route via Vancouver. The airline flies to the so-called “Entertainment Capital of World,” which draws 40 million visitors annually, four times a week, using the wide-body Airbus A340 aircraft.
Loyal PAL patrons can look forward to a world-class travel experience whenever they pass through Terminal 3, according to airport operators.
The new terminal boasts of an array of dining and shopping options as well as free wireless Internet service and power outlets to recharge cellular phones and other hand-held devices.
McCarran airport’s Terminal 3 has 14 additional gates, including seven designated for international carriers.
Each gate features self-boarding equipment. With the simple scan of a pre-printed boarding pass or mobile device, verified passengers can immediately board their flight without need of an airline attendant. It also offers self-service baggage tagging to participating carriers.
