Pack your patience. Tuesday is one of the busiest travel days of the year. And combine busy airports with an incoming storm — we could be bracing for a nightmare at the airports.
Over 130,000 New Jerseyans are expected to fly this year for Thanksgiving, according to AAA. The organization also projects 1.4 million New Jerseyans are going to travel more than 50 miles – that is the most ever since 2000.
If you are catching a flight on Tuesday, try to get to the airport at least two to three hours before you are set to take off. And always check with your airline before for delays or cancellations before coming to the airport.
Due to the increase volume and incoming storm anticipate long TSA lines, avoid checking in a bag if possible and have flexibility in case you are delayed or need to be rescheduled.
AAA says for New Jersey, traveling by skies is up nearly 10% from last year. Nationally, 4.7 million Americans will fly to their Thanksgiving destinations this year.
