Summer Travel Tips
With an anticipated increase in travel volume this summer, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is recommending that travelers incorporate additional time in their travel plans for traffic, parking, rental car returns, airline check-in and TSA screening.
At minimum, travelers should arrive up to two hours in advance of your flight departure time for domestic travel and three hours for international flights.
To help mitigate the crowds, airports throughout the Hawaiian Islands will open additional checkpoints during peak periods. Travelers are encourage to allocate extra time to pass through security checkpoints, especially if they are traveling between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Minimizing your carryon luggage will assist in the screening process. Travelers heading to the mainland also need to proceed to U.S.D.A. Baggage Inspection before continuing to your airline’s ticket counter.
The Hawaii Tourism Authority extends a sincere mahalo (thank you) to travelers for their patience during this summer travel season.
Please visit TSA’s Summer Travel Tips site for more information.
