Friday is expected to be the busiest day ahead of Independence Day. AAA predicts he will fly more than 4 million people this weekend, an 11% increase from last year.
JAX canceled dozens of flights earlier this week, but the situation appears to be improving. As of Friday morning, only three flights have been delayed, and three flights here have been canceled, according to FlightAware.
Things definitely look a lot better when it comes to flights and delays, but not this week. In fact, it has become a national problem.
Airlines have canceled 8,000 flights since Saturday, according to FlightAware. An additional 42,750 flights were delayed nationwide this week.
Even if your plane arrives on time, you don’t want any problems. Experts recommend getting to the airport in plenty of time.
More than 2.8 million people are expected to be tested by TSA, which could set a new record for holiday travel on Independence Day.
The agency said it was asking passengers to check for prohibited items on board in preparation for a surge in travelers.
The TSA also recommends downloading the MyTSA app to keep track of wait times and delays at airports nationwide.
The TSA also says it’s best to get to the airport early. That way, you can get ahead of potential problems. Also, always check the status of your flight through your airline.
