Spring Break is coming to an end and more families are expected to travel home this weekend.

The busy time for the Tulsa International Airport is early in the morning until about 10 am and airport officials are still recommending people get here two hours before their flight because of the increase in traffic.

Along with the increase in people traveling this week at the airport, AAA says it's also seeing an increase in drivers out on the roads this month. They say more people are eager to travel after not traveling for the past couple of years because of the pandemic.

Andrew Pierini with Tulsa International Airport says they're seeing promising numbers when it comes to the increase in travelers.

"We've seen travel significantly increase from last year. We're about 35 percent compared to 2021 spring break. And compared to 2019 pre-pandemic we're about 85 to 90 percent. So still not quite back to pre-pandemic levels but compared to last year, significantly up." says Andrew Pierini with TIA

He says they're hoping this increase in air travel continues throughout the summer months.
