Air Travel

Prepare to get to the airport early this Thanksgiving as this year is predicted to be the busiest ever for travelers.

According to new data from Airlines 4 America, an industry trade organization, an estimated 30.6 million passengers will board a U.S. airlines flight during the 12-day period around Thanksgiving. Last year, the number of travelers in the same period was about 29 million.

This year’s busiest day for travel is expected to be Sunday, Nov. 25, when an estimated 3.06 million people will board flights. Those flying from American airports on that day would be well advised to arrive early, especially if checking bags. Other particularly busy days during the Thanksgiving travel period are expected to be Wednesday, Nov. 21 and Friday, Nov. 16.    MORE
