CT Holiday Travel Tips 2021

A Short Guide on Traveling Out of Connecticut in 2021.

Following such isolated times, many are itching to go on a trip. As the holidays near, visiting family and friends out of town this season might lead to some challenges due to the projected travel rush. 

 

Holiday travel can be tricky (and at times intimidating), but with these handy tips, your journey can run smoothly.

1. Prepare for Travel Regulations

Safety and security are still high concerns, particularly at major airports. Don’t be caught off-guard. Make sure to research any requirements or procedures that may affect your trip.

 

A few factors to be aware of when traveling through major airports:

 

  • • On-site COVID-19 testing availability
  • • Face mask requirements
  • • Additional sanitation
  • • Hand sanitizer allowance in carry-on baggage
  • • Physical distancing in restaurants and cafes
Read through some of the changes and requirements for the specific airport you are traveling through before you depart:
Bradley International Airport (BDL)
John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK)
LaGuardia, NY Airport (LGA)
Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR)

Contact your aviation company for any additional considerations that might need to be taken into account when flying out of CT’s smaller airports.
Danielson Airport (KLZD)
Groton-New London Airport, CT (KGON)
Hartford – Brainard Airport (KHFD)
Waterbury – Oxford Airport (KOXC)
Windham Airport (KIJD)

2. Prepare for Long Lines

The staffing shortage in the TSA may cause long lines at all airports so the best way to prepare is to have an extra amount of time for lining up at counters, terminals, and more. 

3. Check in Early and Be at the Airport On Time

Take advantage of online check-ins so you won’t have to spend extra time at counters, in case unexpected challenges cause delays. With travel expected to surge for the holidays, expect traffic to be terrible. Plan ahead considering traffic delays.

4. Arrange a Ride to the Airport Ahead of Time

It’s essential that you book a ride to the airport ahead of time. Many friends and family have their own plans, and cannot cater to your needs. If you’re going to be away for several days, then airport parking may not be an option as it can be too expensive per day. Book your departure and arrival ride by phone, online, or through the M7 Ride mobile app
