Labor Day travel means extra long lines so be sure to arrive at the airport early


YEAR. JENN BONEZA HAS MORE ON THE LONG LINES … AND WHAT TO REMEMBER IF YOU’RE PLANNING TO TRAVEL FOR LABOR DAY JENN: MANY TRAVELERS HAVE GROWN ACCUSTOMED TO LONG LINES AT WE ARRIVED AT THE DANIEL K INOUYE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT THIS AFTENROON, MANY WERE SHOCKED AT JUST HOW LONG THE LINES WERE TODAY. BRIAN ISHIDA, HONOLULU RESIDENT: HO, YEAH THIS LINE IS WRONG I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO THINK NOW I CAN TRY GO AROUND THE OTHER SIDE AND GET IN” RICKY SALES, HONOLULU RESIDENT: “I DIDN’T SEE IT LIKE THIS BEFORE IT’S REALLY BAD” LABOR DAY WEEKEND IS ONE OF THE BUSIEST WEEKENDS OF THE YEAR AT THE AIRPORT. ROUGHLY 60,000 WILL BE CATCHING FLIGHTS EVERY DAY THROUGH MONDAY. THERE ARE TWO PEAK TRAVEL TIMES. AROUND 7PM AND FROM 10AM-2PM. THIS AFTERNOON THE TSA SECURITY LINES SNAKED OUT FROM THE CENTER OF TERMINAL 1 ALL THE WAY TO TERMINAL 2. “KYLIE DUMERIC, AUSTRALIA RESIDENT: IT’S A BIT HECTIC SO WHERE WORRIED WE’RE GOING TO MISS OUR NEXT FLIGHT WE’VE BEEN TRAVELING FOR 24 HOURS NOW” ARMIN GASTERER, GERMANY RESIDENT: I DON’T KNOW LABOR DAY IN GERMANY. I DON’T KNOW FOR. I DON’T KNOW AND THE LINE WAS TOO LONG FOR US. WE DID NOT EXPECT TO WAIT SUCH A LONG TIME JUST TO GO TO MAUI” I MET WITH TIM SAKAHARA FROM DOT. TIM SAKAHARA, DEPT OF TRANSPORTATION: TSA EARLIER THIS SUMMER RECOMMENDED THAT PEOPLE SHOULD COME TO 3 HOURS EARLY AND WE AGREE WITH THAT JUST TO GIVE THEM SELVES EXTRA TIME TO GET FROM THE CURB ALL THE WAY TO THE GATE JENN: TALK TO ME ABOUT THIS WEEKEND ARE WE EXPECTED TO BE AS BUSY SATURDAY AND SUNDAY AS WE WERE TODAY? TIM SAKAHARA, DEPT OF TRANSPORTATION: WE’LL FRIDAY IS THE BUSIEST DAY FOR DEPARTURES OF THE WEEKEND. JENN: D-O-T OFFICIALS ALSO SUGGEST BEING DROPPED OFF AT THE AIRPORT AS A WAY TO AVOID HAVING TO DEAL WITH PARKING. BACK TO YOU. BRIG: HERE’S A SCAM TO KEEP AN EYE
