Travelers should pack their patience and be prepared for long lines at airport checkpoints. The Transportation Security Administration expected to screen about 25 million people between Monday and next Monday, an increase of 5 percent over last year.
Nearly 250,000 travelers are expected through RDU this week! Peak travel days will be Tuesday, Wednesday, and Sunday. To avoid some of the long lines at TSA check point, travelers should arrive at least 2-hours before your flight departs.
