USA: disruption expected over the weekend
In view of the numerous return flights after Thanksgiving
The numerous trips booked for Thanksgiving Day (November 23) are causing various disruptions in the air transport sector. This involves not only large airport hubs, but also smaller airports. Such as the Manchester-Boston regional airport, usually used by families and university students. Now a boom in transits returning from the holidays is expected over the week-end.
"There are a lot of people expected. So I recommend arriving at the airport a little earlier than normal just to make sure you check in smoothly. Remember to be understanding of potential flight disruptions or any delays. Please understand that it is not It's the airline workers' fault that the flight may be slightly postponed", said airport director Ted Kitchens.
This week's increased travel demand comes alongside an increase in domestic and regional flights, which recently outnumbered pre-pandemic flights. In view of the numerous return flights after Thanksgiving, the manager therefore warns that it is important that travelers arrive at the airport two hours before the scheduled departure.
