Holiday travel is in full swing across the country. To help make for a smooth journey, the Tri-Cities Airport is sharing valuable tips below for passengers planning to travel through PSC from now until the end of the year:
Arrive early. Aim to arrive at least two hours before your flight to give yourself ample time to find parking, walk to the terminal, check bags, go through security and get to your gate.
Pack your patience. Everyone is excited to travel near and far to spend the holidays with their loved ones. Lines to check bags and go through security will be longer than they typically are, so please pack your patience.
Consider checking your bags. Airlines will likely be checking passenger bags at the gate. Consider checking your bags to lighten your load and save time going through security and boarding the plane.
Think 3-1-1. When going through the security checkpoint, come prepared to follow the 3-1-1 rule for your liquids and gels: 3 ounces of liquid in a 1 quart bag, 1 bag per person. Higher quantities of breast milk, medicines, and hand sanitizer are permitted but may require further inspection.
Know which holiday items can travel in your carry-on and which should go in a checked bag. TSA has policies that affect holiday travel. Learn ahead of time which items you can bring on the plane or need to check in your luggage.
Greet passengers on the curb. When picking friends and family up from the airport, please use the cell phone lot and have the passenger call you when they arrive and have their bags. You can then pick them up on the curb.
Choose convenient parking. Our self-serve credit card lot is a short walk to the terminal, easy in and easy out.
