The airport in Las Vegas is getting busier.

Officials at McCarran International Airport near the Las Vegas Strip are marking 14 consecutive months of passenger growth.

More than 47 million passengers flew in to or out of the airport from January through November of 2019.

Officials say that's up nearly 3.5% over the same time period last year.

The airport is among the 10 busiest in the United States based on the number of arriving and departing passengers served. It already has broken a record for passengers in a single year, marking the 50 millionth in a ceremony last week.
