LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – Harry Reid International Airport announced that it has launched a remote bag drop service to “enhance the customer experience and maximize operational efficiencies.”

According to a media release, the airport also seeks to lessen check-in area volumes, departure curb traffic and the overall amount of luggage on airport shuttles and inside the terminals. Travelers will be able to check their bags and print their boarding passes as part of this amenity.

The release also noted that this service will make it more convenient for locals to use the Remote Lot at 7140 Gilespie Street, across from the Airport Rent-A-Car Center, as a parking option.

“As passenger volumes continue to grow, we are constantly seeking new ways to make the travel experience less stressful for customers while also reducing congestion at key points of the airport’s operations,” said Ralph LePore, Senior Director for the Clark County Department of Aviation. “This remote bag drop service will provide increased flexibility for our passengers, and we are thrilled to have it in time to welcome fans arriving for Super Bowl LVIII.”

Two permanent locations will operate on Thursdays-Mondays with the following hours:

Airport Rent-A-Car Center: 4 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.

Terminal 3 Departures: 4 a.m. – 12 p.m.

  • American Airlines
  • Delta Airlines
  • Frontier Airlines
  • JetBlue
  • Southwest Airlines
  • United Airlines

Use of this service is currently complimentary. Any costs associated with checked bags, as applied by the airlines, are still applicable.
