Valuable tips for Holiday travel:
1. Use the MyTSA App to check the average TSA security line times when traveling. Airlines recommend arriving at least 2 hours before your domestic flight departure, but airport traffic may be unusual during the holidays, so be prepared and arrive earlier.
2. Reserve airport parking in any of the four parking facilities at least 24 hours before your travel online at park.flymsy.com to guarantee parking in your preferred parking facility. Valet parking is also available and offers a premium option for those wanting a higher level of service.
3. Take advantage of the MSY Guest Pass, which is free and allows you to go through security and spend more time with family and friends traveling through the airport. To get the MSY Guest Pass, register online at flymsy.com/msy-guest-pass at least 24 hours in advance. You can pick up your MSY Guest Pass at the Customer Service desk on the first floor between doors 2 and 3, and you must present an official ID. The same travel rules apply to go through the TSA security line.
4. Consider the new nonstop flights with Air Canada and Breeze for your next trip. Air Canada recently announced its direct flight from New Orleans to Montreal, while Breeze Airlines added Ft. Myers as a direct flight destination to Florida.
