Airports expect to be busy due to spring break

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Officials at Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City and at Tulsa International Airport say airlines are expected to be busy through the weekend because of students who are out on spring break.

Passengers are advised to arrive at least 90 minutes before their flight – especially for flights scheduled to depart before 8 a.m.

Officials also note that many airlines now close flight check-in, both online and at the ticket counter, 25-30 minutes prior to departure to ensure on-time departures. This means that if you have not checked-in by that time you will not receive a boarding pass and rebooking can be difficult since flights are very full and available seats are at a premium.
