Upcoming Thanksgiving travel
According to AAA, those who plan to travel by air this holiday season will pay the cheapest, average airfare since 2013.
At $157, on average, that is a 23 percent fare drop year-over-year. That low airfare led to the largest growth in holiday travel with 3.95 million travelers.
To make the commute smoother, officials at Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport want to make local residents aware of a recent change. Teckie Hinkebein with Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport said, “TSA is now requiring any electronics larger than a cell phone to be pulled out of any bags, carry-on bags, and put into their separate bin before entering the security checkpoint. So, we want to make sure that passengers are aware of that prior to entering the security checkpoint.”
The Thanksgiving holiday travel period is defined as Wednesday, November 22nd to Sunday, November 26th.
