According to AAA of Michigan, more than 1.5 million Michiganders will travel this week, a 2 percent increase from last year, which means our roads and airports will be especially busy.
The airport is currently under construction and cautions lines could be longer than normal. Passengers are encouraged to arrive 90-120 minutes before their flight.
To help keep the line moving through security, stay up-to-date on the latest travel notices and information about what you can or cannot bring on your flight by visiting: www.tsa.gov.
Patriot Guard Riders will volunteer their time during the day Wednesday to welcome home West Michigan troops as part of Operation Handshake.
Volunteers will staff both airport concourses from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and airport staff will be passing out treats and trinkets to thank passengers for utilizing the airport during the busy time of year.
Other festivities are also planned at the airport during the week.
