The Transportation Security Administration expects a record number of travelers at airports during the Thanksgiving travel period, which starts next week.
TSA expects more than 26.8 million passengers going through airport security checkpoints from Nov. 22 through Dec. 2.
The busiest days are expected to be Wednesday before Thanksgiving and Sunday after Thanksgiving.
TSA advises that travelers get to the airport early and allow enough time to park and get through traffic, check any bags and get through security. That means getting to the terminal at least two hours before domestic flights and at least three hours before international flights.
