The article reports on a decline in the number of air travelers to and from Las Vegas, Nevada in September 2008. The city posted a 13.2% decline in travelers to 3.37 million which represents the largest year-over-year decline since the months after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Such numbers were proven by the fewer passengers for nearly all major carriers at McCarran International Airport including US Airways and Southwest.
