Traveling for the holidays? Here are some tips

(Jackson, Wyo.) - Whether you are traveling somewhere else for the holidays or you have family or friends coming here, here are some tips to navigate the busy local and regional airports. *Parking* According to the Jackson Hole Airport, overnight parking will be extremely limited during the holidays. The airport asks that departing passengers use other means to get to the airport like the Ride2Fly shuttle or a taxi. If you do park at the airport, make sure to display the parking receipt or you will get towed. For Idaho Falls Regional Airport, parking for the first 30 minutes is free and then they offer hourly and long term parking at the airport. *When to Arrive* We know the drill, airports like Jackson Hole and Idaho Falls are smaller, so you don't think you need to show up early for flights, but that isn't true. Since they are smaller, these airports have less resources to serve the huge holiday crowds. If you want to get where you are going, it's wise to follow the guidance of the airport. At Jackson Hole Airport, all airlines are asking that departing passengers check-in two hours early to ensure an on-time departure. Idaho Falls Regional Airport asks that passengers arrive at least an hour and a half before your flight takes off. *Packing * According to the Idaho Falls Regional Airport, "it is advised that passengers carry medications, cash, jewelry and any other valuables with them on the plane. Include identification tags on each piece of luggage that provides the passenger’s name, address and phone number." Jackson Hole Airport advises to pack the bare minimum. The website states, "Don’t try to bring everything for every occasion. The more baggage you bring to the airport, the more likely you will run into complications." *Know the TSA Rules* We know you aren't a travel newbie, but brush up what you can and cannot have in your carry on.
