LAS VEGAS (AP) - Las Vegas airport officials say passenger traffic at the city's major airport declined 12.8 percent in October compared to the same month one year ago, the 12th straight monthly decline.
The figures released this week show nearly 3.6 million passengers used McCarran International Airport during October 2008, compared to 4 million in October 2007.
One month ago, the airport said its September numbers showed a 13.2 percent decline, the largest decrease since the months following 9/11.
US Airways traffic at the airport declined 23 percent for October as the airline implemented cuts that had already been announced.
The year-to-date passenger total for the first 10 months of 2008 is 37.6 million, down from 40.3 million for the same time frame last year.
