LAS VEGAS (AP) - Officials in Las Vegas are reporting another monthly increase in the number of people using McCarran International Airport in June, and say passenger traffic is up 5.6 percent for the first six months of 2016.

The Clark County Department of Aviation reported Thursday that more than 4.1 million arriving and departing passengers came through McCarran in June - up 5.7 percent from the same month in 2015.

So far this year, the nation’s ninth-busiest airport has tallied more than 23 million passengers.

That puts it on pace to host more than the 45 million passengers it handled last year.

McCarran handled a record 48 million passengers in 2007.

The number of international passengers has been steady in the first half of 2016 compared with last year, at just over 1.7 million.
