Operators planning flights to Las Vegas McCarran International Airport (LAS) might want to make alternative arrangements beginning November 1, when Runway 25L/07R closes until May 1. During that time, there will be traffic management initiatives such as mile-in-trail, ground stops and ground delays, according to NBAA.

Operators might want to consider nearby alternates Henderson Executive and North Las Vegas, both of which offer FBO services provided by Clark County, owner of the three Las Vegas-area airports.
