With the holidays approaching, Los Angeles International Airport on Sunday is expected to record one of the busiest days of this year’s holiday travel season.

On Sunday, LAX officials are expected to 200,000 visitors for airport use.

The holiday season kicks off on Thursday, and airport officials have warned people to arrive early for a number of reasons.

As tourism returns to pre-pandemic levels this holiday season, Southern California Automobile Club previously said the year-end holidays would be the third-busiest on record in Southern California.

Up to 3.5 million visitors are expected to pass through LAX between December 17 and January 3.

While that is still lower than the 4.5 million passengers seen at LAX during the same period in 2019, it is much higher than the 1.85 million passengers who passed through the airport this time last year. .

“Friday was the busiest day for TSA at LAX since early 2020,” LAX officials tweeted on Saturday. “That trend will continue every Sunday for the next three weeks, with busy days alternating.”

After Sunday, peak travel days at LAX are expected to return on December 26 and January 2, when more than 200,000 passengers are expected each day.

People’s frenzy at LAX has some visitors vacationing using other local airports, such as Hollywood Burbank Airport, formerly known as Bob Hope Airport.

Meanwhile, nearly 8.8 million Southern Californians are expected to travel over the holidays, compared with 9.3 million in 2019, according to Car club.

The majority of Southern Californians plan to travel by car, and they will face year-to-date high gas prices, AAA said in a statement. New information posted.
