LAX expects 215,000 travelers on Sunday, the busiest day of Thanksgiving weekend

LOS ANGELES (CNS) — Los Angeles International Airport expected Sunday to be the busiest day of a long Thanksgiving weekend, which already saw a record number of travelers from Southern California.

“Today is expected to be the busiest day of the Thanksgiving holiday travel season at LAX, with approximately 215,000 guests using the airport. Make sure to check your flight status and book parking in advance and arrive early for a smooth journey!” Airport officials tweeted Sunday morning.

Hollywood Burbank Airport issued a similar recommendation for travelers.

A record 4.5 million Southern California residents were expected to travel this holiday season, a 2.5% increase from last year and contributing to what the Automobile Club of Southern California ranks as the third busiest Thanksgiving travel season nationwide forecast.

“Despite inflation and high gas prices, consumers continue to prioritize quality and memorable time with family and friends by gathering together on the holidays,” said Heather Felix, Auto Club vice president of travel products and services, in a statement. “Our members want to make up for their delayed or missed travel opportunities during the pandemic.”

The most popular destinations for travelers from Southern California were likely to be Las Vegas, San Diego, the Grand Canyon/Sedona, Yosemite, and Mexico cruises.

Nationally, Anaheim was expected to be the second most popular travel destination after Orlando, Florida
