    DALLAS -- McCarran International Airport will have the eighth greatest expansion in passenger "enplanements" by percentage among major U.S. airports over the next five years, a leading aviation industry consultant says.

    Mike Boyd, chairman of Boyd Group International, said McCarran would have a 6.3 percent increase through 2017. Projections were released at Boyd's two-day aviation forecast summit attended this week by about 450 people in the airline, airport and aircraft manufacturing industries.

    Boyd estimates the airport would have 21.1 million enplanements this year, growing to 22.4 million by 2017. Enplanements are the number of passengers departing from the airport. McCarran normally tallies passenger counts as the number of people arriving and departing.
