BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Logan Airport was hustling and bustling on Friday morning, as folks began to head out of town for Thanksgiving.
According to travel officials, Friday is the start of what is expected to be a busy holiday season.
The Transportation Security Administration says people can expect busy terminals and long lines at airports and that is exactly what travelers experienced on Friday morning at Logan.
"We think this will be the largest holiday travel period in nearly two years, what is different for many people is it will be their first time flying since the pandemic," said Massport CEO Lisa Weiland.
Joan Murdoch was on her way to Idaho Friday morning to see her grandkids. "I'm a little nervous but I got my mask and I've had my vaccines and the booster, so I think I'll be in good shape," said Murdoch.
"At Logan we are expecting between 800,000 and 900,000 passengers traveling through the airport in and out," said Massport Director of Aviation Ed Freni. These travel numbers are expected in the next ten days.
Logan is expected to stay busy through November 29. Travel officials encourage everyone to get to the airport early because lines will be long.
