Tips When Flying During the Busy Holiday Season

Simone Gavros | posted Tuesday, Dec 24th, 2019

With the holiday season in full-swing, Toronto Pearson Airport is expected to be full of travellers ready to head home or escape the frigid temperatures Toronto has to offer. To keep your travel experience merry and bright, here are two key tips to keep in mind when travelling on the busiest day of the holiday season!

Leave Early

It goes without saying that you should be at the airport at least 2-3 hours before your flight to ensure optimal time for check-in, checking baggage and security check. Today and during the rest of the busy holiday season, be sure to stick to those early arrival times! Since it’s expected to be the busiest travel day of the holiday season with an estimate of 138,000 flyers, the lines may be longer than usual. No one wants to be stressed out before boarding their flight so making sure you’re on time and ready to go will guarantee an easy experience.

Keep Gifts Unwrapped

As convenient as it might be to get all the wrapping out of the way before heading on the place, that is a big no-no for the airport. Gifts that are wrapped prior to flying can be ripped open during security checks. It has nothing to do with them being Grinches! But, if a package looks suspicious, it’s for the safety of passengers and crew that it be double-checked. It will also make the security check go by much quicker, as well. So, make sure you have wrapping paper waiting for you at your destination!

Keeping these two key tips in mind when travelling during this busy holiday season will be sure to keep everyone jolly this season! Safe travels!
