PBIA sees influx of travelers for Christmas celebrations

Its the most wonderful time of the year and also one of the busiest for travel.

WPTV reporter Victor Jorges was Palm Beach International Airport on Sunday morning chatting with travelers about their experience.

Many people said it was definitely busy, but things were moving smoothly for them.

Sammy Dratch, whos visiting her family here in South Florida, said she thought it would be way busier.

We got to the airport pretty early. We were expecting it to be crazy lines, a lot of waiting, pretty hectic but it wasnt like that at all, she said. It was fairly calm.

Another traveler from New Jersey, Allison Aquilino, said she had an extra early wake up time to give herself enough time to navigate this trip.

It was good, I did have to wake up at 3 a.m. to get to the airport, but other than that it wasnt too bad, she said. I have precheck, everyone should get that, especially for the holidays.
