Airlines Encourage Early Arrival at Airport

Date:  December 16, 2011

Mid-Continent Airport anticipates a busy travel period between December 21 and 31 for the Christmas holiday.  To ensure a smooth visit to the airport, the airlines encourage passengers whose flights are scheduled to depart between 6:00 a.m. – 7:00 a.m. to arrive two hours prior to their flight. However, passengers who are not checking luggage and already have their boarding pass should arrive at least 1 ½ hours prior to departure.  Please allow enough time to park, check in at the ticket counter, and get through security.

Before coming to the Airport, passengers can review the latest travel tips and security requirements by visiting the airport’s website at

The airlines and airport staff wish everyone a Merry Christmas and safe travels!
