LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — As of Saturday morning, McCarran International Airport says all garages and lots are open once again after a busy week as travelers made their way out of Las Vegas for the Thanksgiving holiday.

By 9 a.m. on Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving, the airport was reporting the Terminal 1 garage and the Terminal 3 economy lot were both full and closed. By 11:30 a.m., Terminal 1 valet was also reported as closed.
