YAKIMA, WA-- It is the time of year when a lot of people are heading to the airport for holiday travel, and the Yakima airport manager said there a few things to keep in mind as you head to your flight.

Airport administrators said the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas are the busiest time for travel and every year the airport sees an increase in travelers.

They said make sure you know what you can bring on the plane so everyone can get through the airport faster.

"Check with your airline and see what kind of items you need to check.  I know a lot of people are bringing gifts throughout the holiday and make sure you can check it accordingly," said Yakima airport manager, Robert Peterson.

Peterson also said that at smaller airports like in Yakima and the Tri-Cities, if a connecting flight is delayed or canceled because of winter weather, it will effect most of the flights for the day.

He said to call your airline before your flight to see if there are any delays or cancellations.
