Air travel up during Thanksgiving holiday

Air travel up during Thanksgiving holiday

Thanksgiving Day is just around the corner and that usually means people are going to be traveling to see family and loved ones.

The Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport’s flights are completely full from last Friday up until Thanksgiving Day, thanks to the large college student population traveling home.

Airport Manager Bob Nicholas says staff has preparations in place to be ready for the rough weather likely on the way, with employees ready for the call to clear runways of any snow when needed.

Nicholas is recommending anyone taking a flight out of Ithaca sometime this week to come at least an hour earlier to avoid congestion, allowing you to get through security checks with time to spare.
