Domestic carriers assigned to T3 will include Alaska Airlines, Frontier, JetBlue, Sun Country, Virgin America, Hawaiian Airlines, and United. International airlines will include AeroMexico, Air Berlin, Air Canada, ArkeFly, British Airways, Condor, Copa, Korean Air, Philippine Airlines, Sunwing, Thomas Cook, Virgin Atlantic Airways, VivaAerobus, Volaris, WestJet and XL Airways France.
Travelers can expect to find self-boarding podiums at the gate, do-it-yourself kiosks for baggage tags and free WiFi throughout T3 when it opens.
We were a bit crushed to learn that T3 won't offer any trendy celebrity dining destinations, but it will still feature nine other spots to sate travel hunger pains. Dewar's Clubhouse Bar & Grill, La Tapenade Mediterranean Cafe, The Village Pub, and Vegas ChopHouse are all pretty self-explanatory and are all listed on the "unique dining" end of the spectrum. For grab and go, there will be Burger King, Carl's Jr., Pei Wei Asian Diner, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and, of course, Starbucks.
Don't look for anything out of the box here. The usual touristy airport shops will reign in T3, from Vegas Special Tees to Welcome to Las Vegas. Other places to browse will include Hudson News and Gifts, World of Sports and Nuance Duty Free.
Look up from juggling that baggage and smart phone every once and awhile to appreciate the public art that will surround you in T3, from the whimsy of Mirare, two airplanes comprised of thousands of butterfly sculptures, to the already buzzed about Folies in Flight, celebrating the Las Vegas showgirl (shown above). We're also in love with the children's art that will be found throughout T3 as well.
T3 will open on June 27. An open house will be held on June 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for those of you who can't wait to inhale that new airport scent.
