Smooth holiday travel at Sky Harbor Airport

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -

Things are running smoothly at Sky Harbor Airport.  Travelers were in a good mood as they raced off to join loved ones.

The weather, in most places, is cooperating -- not much in the way of delays.

Five to 10 Sky Harbor flights were delayed Wednesday morning because of heavy fog in Chicago, but other than that, the planes were on time and passengers were in a good mood.

"You know, I thought it would be crazy and I thought it seems pretty sweet now," said Dave Oman, who was flying to Minneapolis.  "I don't know maybe everyone was going to leave in the morning or at night, picking the middle of the day is the ticket."

You might think parking would be very difficult at Sky Harbor on a day like this, but we are on top of the Terminal 4 parking garage and it is wide open.

We checked out the cell phone parking lot and ran into people waiting for friends and family flying into Phoenix.

No complaints from these recent arrivals from Colorado.

"I thought today would be chaotic day at the airport, but I am not finding it," said Rich Sibrel.  "She said even in Denver, she flew through security in 10 minutes."

It's enough to make you downright thankful.

"Loving it here," said Lynn Brown of Phoenix.  "I am thankful living in this great weather.  Hope everyone has a good Thanksgiving, lots to eat."

As of 5 p.m. Wednesday, the airport was running smoothly, but it's still a holiday.  It's a good idea to allow a little extra time -- arrive extra early if you're flying out.
