Businessexcellence July 07 96 initiatives, including an RFID (radio frequency identifi cation) system for baggage handling, which tracks baggage as it goes through an inline screening system behind the ticketing counters, self-service customer boarding pass kiosks, and a free WiFi network for customers. Beyond that, the Department of Aviation is developing plans for a second major Southern Nevada passenger airport in Ivanpah Valley near the Nevada-California border, just east of Interstate 15. The Federal Aviation Administration and Bureau of Land Management are now at work on an Environmental Impact Statement. McCarran has developed an airport-wide common use system, which has placed most IT operations on an airport-maintained network. This gives greater fl exibility by allowing a gate to be shifted from one airline to another, rather than allowing it to remain dormant when not needed, simply because it was set up to work with only one carrier’s systems. Common use technology is also used to drive kiosks and off-airport baggage check-in systems. The biggest challenge the airport faces is keeping pace with the expected growth in demand for air service to the Las Vegas area. Historic data shows that there are approximately 330 annual passengers for each new guest room that opens in the city. With 35,000 to 40,000 additional rooms scheduled to open over the next few years, that would bring 13.2 million additional air travelers to McCarran each year, putting the airport well above its expected sustainable capacity of 53 million passengers per year. The new terminal, parking garages and other improvements are aimed at satisfying that demand.
