McCarran International Airport saw 3.86 million passengers in February, breaking an 11-month streak of surpassing 4 million people flying in and out of Las Vegas.

It was 6.5 percent increase over the prior February’s 3.63 million passengers, according to data released Wednesday by the Clark County Department of Aviation.

COVID-19 concerns curtailed travel toward the end of the month, according to airport spokesman Joseph Rajchel.

“We would also like to acknowledge that these numbers may seem hard to reconcile with current events,” Rajchel said in an email. “We anticipate seeing a much clearer impact of COVID-19 in the March passenger numbers, which will be released at the end of April.”

Southwest Airlines, McCarran’s largest carrier, saw 1.23 million passengers, a 5.6 percent dip from 2019 counts of 1.29 million, largely tied to the continued grounding of the Boeing MAX airplanes.
