Airport Expects More Than 25,000 Travelers for Holiday Weekend

The number of people flying in to town for the holiday weekend is down, but it's not low.
LITTLE ROCK, AR -- The number of people flying in to town for the holiday weekend is down, but it's not low.

There is a 4 percent decrease this year, compared to this time last year when the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport saw 26,280 passengers during the Labor Day Holiday Weekend.

Between Thursday and Monday, 25,198 passengers are scheduled to fly in to Arkansas' largest airport. 

Friday is expected to be the busiest with 6,900 people projected to fly in.

The airport recently concluded a $67 million construction project, which includes a modernized and expanded ticket lobby and curbside check-in now available for Southwest Airlines passengers.

A high-tech baggage screening system is also in place, allowing passengers to check luggage directly at an airline ticket counter.

Passengers are encouraged to arrive at the airport 90 minutes prior to their scheduled flight.
