LAS VEGAS (AP) — Travelers flying out of Las Vegas should be warned: Their plane might not be leaving from the same place they're used to.

Officials at McCarran International Airport say Alaska Airlines, Frontier Airlines, JetBlue Airways, Sun Country Airlines and Virgin America start operating out of the new Terminal 3 on Tuesday morning.

The $2.4 billion terminal has been open since late June, but only to foreign airlines.

McCarran officials say shifting more domestic airlines to the new site will ease congestion in Terminal 1.

Officials have installed electronic signs over roadways leading into the airport to guide drivers to the proper terminal.
