WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (WTNH)– While a majority of people will drive, according to AAA, more than three and a half million people will be flying this week. But there are concerns about the holiday travel rush and its impact on the lines at airport security checkpoints.
More than 3.6 million people will be taking to the skies across the country. Everything is running smoothly at the ticket counter. The same over at the security line.
As you may recall it was back in the spring when there were concerns over long lines through security check points across the country. All because of a shortage of TSA agents. That’s really not a concern anymore. TSA hired more than a thousand new agents across the country. So that should help especially at the larger and busier airports.
In addition to all of that, there’s been a 50-percent increase in the number of people who’ve signed up for the TSA pre check, which gets you through security even faster with less hassle.
It’s recommended that you get to the airport at least 90 minutes before your flight regardless of which airport you’re flying out of. That will give you time to check in and get through security.
But again, smooth sailing at Bradley Wednesday morning. Only one flight cancellation which is an Air Canada flight to Montreal. Otherwise everything else running on schedule.
