Posted on 15/04/2019 | in 长沙桑拿按摩论坛 | by

EDMONTON — It’s the busiest time of year at the Edmonton International Airport, which traditionally sees a 10 to 20 per cent increase in travel around this time of year.

But this year is a little bit different according to EIA’s director of public affairs. Heather Hamilton says the busiest day of 2015 will be Christmas Eve, while in years past, it’s always been the Friday before the holiday when students begin their winter vacation.

Watch below: It’s the busiest time of the year for the Edmonton International Airport. As Kendra Slugoski reports, stalls at security could put everybody behind.

She offers one vital tip to improve your travel experience.

“The number one thing that people can do is get to the airport early,” Hamilton advises. “The planes are full so if you miss your plane you’re going to have a really hard time getting on another one,” she adds.

Here are a few other handy tips:

Look through your carry-on bag before you leave for the airport for items that aren’t permitted.Avoid wearing clothing which will set off the metal detector as you pass through security.Check your flight status before you leave for the airport.Don’t wrap Christmas gifts until after your flight.

To help with the rush additional airport staff are helping travelers with their bags, free gift wrapping is also available once you get through security.
