Passengers Wait in Huge Lines at Las Vegas Airport Amid Flight Cancellation Backlog

Long lines were seen on December 28 at Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas, Nevada, as COVID-19 and weather disruptions led to the cancellation of over 200 flights out of the facility since Christmas Day.

Harry Reid International Airport advised passengers to arrive at least two hours before their flight as the airport will be “very busy” as people make their way home after the holidays.
