Airport, roads extra busy this Thanksgiving week

Meghan Bunchman talks to officials from the Gerald R. Ford International Airport about what you can do to get through the airport without too much stress this holiday season.

WEST MICHIGAN - 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.
