Las Vegas International Airport is the 22nd largest airport in the world for passenger traffic, and the 9th busiest in the world for aircraft movements. It is located just 5 miles from the central business district of Las Vegas, and is also referred to as the McCarran International Airport. The airport is known by its IATA code of LAS.

Hertz is also well known for their excellent services and competitive car rental rates.
Las Vegas Airport handles approximately 39 million passengers per year, and consists of two passenger terminal buildings for arrival and departure flight operations. Most flights are handled from Terminal 1, a large building with over 80 gates and four concourses, while international flights mainly arrive at Terminal 2, as well as most charter flights. Terminal 2 has eight gates. Authorities of Las Vegas Airport are also building a third terminal for the airport, which will replace the current Terminal 2. The new terminal will have state-of-the-art facilities, and around fourteen gates, of which some will be for international flights. Las Vegas Airport has recently received a new rental car facility that is located approximately 3 miles from the terminals. Passengers will therefore need to take shuttle buses in order to reach the rental counters. The buses are free of charge, and leave from Exit Doors 10 or 11 about every five minutes. There are forty buses that serve the Las Vegas International Airport car rental companies.
There are many passengers who rent a car from the location of Las Vegas Airport, and therefore it is best to reserve your vehicle in advance.

From the rental location of Las Vegas Airport, one way hires, or the Hertz Rent-It-Here and Leave-It-There service, can be arranged by customers who are going only one way from the airport.
