Holiday Travel Season is Underway

As we have been telling you, airports will be packed, especially Wednesday, and South Bend is no different.

South Bend Regional Airport is getting ready for their busiest day of the year.

It is also the busiest travel day period in the United States.

Major airports like Chicago O'Hare, LAX and New York will see a record number of travelers.

Approximately 45 flights will be going out of South Bend Wednesday and each flight will be packed full.

"The day will be busy. Every seat will be filled going out of here. That's about 3,200 seats a day that we normally have," explains Director John Schalliol of the South Bend Regional Airport.

Again, travel experts remind you to carry your liquids and gels that are less than three ounces in a quart size plastic bag.

Also, arrive at the airport at least two hours early.
