Winter Flying Tips To Make Your Trip Less Troubled PDF Print E-mail

For passengers, current airport experiences are often much more difficult than in previous years. One glaring example is the government shut-down that forces security employees to work without pay. As a result, more are calling in sick, causing longer check-in lines and other airport challenges.

Adding to the problems, this year’s winter weather has been particularly cold, wet and snowy, causing additional delays and cancellations. When you plan to fly, try to make your trip less hectic by following some simple rules.

First, in the 24 hours before your flight, keep in constant internet touch with your airline and airport to be aware of any current and upcoming problems that will affect schedules. If the situation worsens, postpone your trip. Or set up alternative plans and reservations that can make your schedule as smooth as possible.
