Holiday Travel Tip: Early Airport Arrival

Contact: Valerie Wise, Air Service & Business Development Manager |

Mid-Continent Airport anticipates a busy holiday travel period between Wednesday, Dec. 21 and Saturday, Dec. 31. To ensure a smooth visit to the airport during the holiday season, the airlines encourage passengers whose flights are scheduled to depart between 6 and 7 a.m. to arrive two hours prior to their flight.

However, passengers who are not checking luggage and already have their boarding pass should arrive at least an hour and a half before departure. Please allow enough time to park, check in at the ticket counter, and pass through security.

Before coming to the Airport, passengers can review the latest travel tips and security requirements by visiting
