GREEN, OH – Traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday? Be sure to prepare for one of the busiest times to fly, especially if you are departing Wednesday the 23rd or returning Sunday the 27th!

  1. Review the TSA travel checklist here; not only does the list include packing restrictions but also information on how security operates and what to expect. (Use @askTSA on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to ask specific questions about what can go through security.)
  2. Download your airline’s app. You can use the app to check-in, receive flight updates, access terminal maps and make flight itinerary changes.
  3. Bring charging cables to keep your phone charged for mobile boarding passes and on-flight entertainment.
  4. Pre-purchase luggage and know your carrier's baggage policies before you arrive at the airport to save money and time.
  5. Remember your ID. A federal or state issued ID is required for all passengers 18 and up. Find a full list of acceptable identification here.
  6. Passengers with a disability or medical condition may call ahead to the TSA Cares toll free helpline at (855) 787-2227. CAK also offers the Sunflower Program for individuals with hidden disabilities.
  7. Arrive 60-90 minutes before your scheduled departure time.

After splitting the wishbone, be sure to plan your upcoming travel with family and friends through CAK. Most airlines like Allegiant Air and Breeze Airways offer flight sales on Black Friday and Cyber-Monday.

Check CAK for flights aboard United Airlines, American Airlines, Allegiant Air, or Breeze Airways to 16 nonstop destinations, and one-stop access to the world.
