Busy Weekend Expected for Travelers at Tulsa International

A busy airport is expected beginning Friday morning for all those headed to their holiday destinations this weekend.

Travelers headed to Tulsa International Airport this weekend should arrive at least two hours before their flight. This is due to heavy holiday travel in and out of Tulsa.

According to a release from airport officials, "flights are expected to be 100 percent full" starting Friday morning. And for most flights departing during the morning times.

Airport authorities also want to remind travelers that those who arrive late may miss their flights due to the long lines at the check-in counters.

Here are a few travel tips from TIA:

- Passengers can reduce their time in line at the ticket counters by utilizing self-service check-in machines. Most of the airlines at TUL now offer this service at their ticket counters.

- When approaching the security checkpoint, passengers should have their government issued photo ID or passport available with their boarding pass.

- Because of TSA security restrictions regarding liquids, passengers should plan on purchasing their beverages after clearing security.
