More from Northern Virginia

With millions of people expected to fly and travel to see family, Thanksgiving is the busiest travel time. According to AAA, this could be the busiest Thanksgiving since 2005.

Airport travelers in Virginia were most thankful for steady moving lines at Dulles International.

“It’s been very good. It was orderly and I had to wait a little bit but it was good,” said Lucretia Woodburn, who was visiting for the first time from South Carolina. 

This year, TSA expect more than 25 million travelers to pass through security screening checkpoints nationwide through November 26, that’s up about 5% from 2017.

College student Rebecca Merrill says she was pleasantly surprised when she arrived at the airport. 

“I flew out the first flight out of Greensboro because it’s a pretty small airport so they weren’t too bad at all,” Merrill said. 

If you made it through Wednesday holiday rush, officials say make sure you are prepared on Sunday as that will be the busiest travel day of the season when people are returning home.
