Allow extra time if traveling during busy holiday season

If you're one of those people heading to the airport to catch a flight - a heads up - there is limited parking.

Schlueter said he didn't feel nervous about traveling on a busy day. The lightest travel days are expected to be December 25 and December 31, with between 212,000 and 214,000 travelers anticipated to pass through LAX.

Over the next two weeks, about 46 million people are expected to fly this holiday season, which is more than 5% from past year.

The Tulsa International Airport is anticipating a 3.5-percent increase in the number of travelers this year than last.

"We always fly out of this airport".

"Today we're at about 168,000 people going through the airport", said Perry Cooper spokesperson for Sea-Tac Airport.

"The line's getting a little longer, but it should be fine", Schlueter said. That's up 4.8 percent from a year ago and the highest number since the club began tracking travel estimates. The vast majority of those people - about 7.7 million - are expected to travel by vehicle, according to the Auto Club. Travelers should expect full flights over the holidays.

Cooper also says using the Link Light Rail can help avoid any traffic issues that might happen at peak travel times at the airport. Despite the large numbers, many have reason to remain jolly.

If you are traveling by air this holiday season, the TSA recommended arriving at the airport two hours before domestic flights and three hours before worldwide flights.
