It’s beginning to look a lot like holiday travel season, and the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport is expecting the most travelers since the start of the pandemic.

Passenger volumes are now up 95% of 2019 levels throughout the Thanksgiving travel week.

With Monday being the first of the busiest travel days, the next one is on Nov. 27.

The busiest times for departures are between 5 a.m. and 7 a.m. and the busiest times for arrivals are between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m.

In order to avoid the chaos and travel more seamlessly this holiday season, CVG has a few suggestions:

Arriving two hours prior to your departure time is especially important this time of year and arriving three hours ahead of time is suggested for flights departing the country.

Through the CVG website, passengers can check parking, concession and security wait times.

It is also recommended that you download airline apps a few days prior to your flight date to track flight status and get real-time notifications. Through these apps, you can also access your boarding pass and check-in.

Family and friends are advised to wait for arriving travelers in the cell phone lot until the passenger is ready for pickup at the arrivals level.
