Eugene Airport Has Advice For Holiday Travelers

Chenue Her

The Eugene Airport anticipates thousands of passengers now through the Thanksgiving weekend.

With all the traffic, airport officials suggest travelers check-in online to avoid lines at the desk. They can also check the airport website in advance to make sure their flights are on schedule.

Airport services manager Casey Boatman says travelers tend to expect the usual short lines, but this time of year, that’s not the case.

Boatman: “Don’t be fooled by the quick lines through Eugene because during the holidays, it’s really important to arrive at the airport two hours before your flight, just in case you’re delayed by the increased number of passengers.”

Boatman also suggests travelers check TSA regulations to get through airport security quickly. Sunday is expected to be the busiest day with nearly 1,600 departing travelers.
