Capital Region International Airport Offers Travel Tips to Ensure Trouble-Free Holiday Trips

Thousands of travelers will fly in and out of the Lansing airport beginning this week for the Thanksgiving holiday and continuing through the start of the New Year. Here’s a quick list of travel tips recommended by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA).

The suggestions include:

– Plan ahead. Airport security screening lines are fast and efficient in Lansing, but during peak periods travelers should arrive at least 90 minutes before a domestic flight and 2 hours before an international flight.

– Have ID ready. Please have identification and boarding passes out when approaching the security checkpoint.

– Follow the 3-1-1 rule: 3-ounce bottles or less for all liquids, gels and aerosols, placed in a 1 quart-sized clear plastic zip-top bag to hold all small bottles; and 1 bag per passenger. Larger quantities of liquids may be packed in checked baggage.

– What to wear: Wear comfortable clothing and easy to slip on shoes. Take everything out of pockets before screening. Don’t wear clothes with a high metal content, and put heavy jewelry on after you go through security.

– Wrapped presents: The TSA also recommends that passengers not travel with wrapped packages in their carry-on bags.

Travelers are encouraged to visit TSA.gov for more security and travel tip information or FlyLansing.com to check other travel information from Lansing, including booking flight reservations and checking arrival and departure times of scheduled flights.
