It’s been a while since we’ve been able to travel freely and regularly but this weekend will change all of that.  People will be coming in and out of Charlotte for the holiday.

It’s shaping up to be a busy travel weekend at Charlotte Douglas International Airport.

More than 200,000 travelers are expected to pass through the airport during the Labor Day holiday weekend.

The biggest crowds of local customers traveling from Charlotte are expected Friday with around 27,000 people and Monday with more than 24,000 travelers.

CLT officials are reminding passengers of things they need to do and beware of while traveling.

First, get to the airport early. It’s busy and there are some changes to ticketing and baggage locations because of construction. Travelers should receive an email from their airline.

Second, face masks are a must. They are required at the airport and on board the flight. The Transportation Security Administration extended a federal requirement that travelers wear masks on commercial flights, buses and trains through January.

Third, passengers are asked to pack their politeness. The Federal Aviation Administration has reported a nearly 300% increase in investigations into unruly passengers so far this in 2021 compared to all of last year.
