Thanksgiving week kicks off the winter holiday travel season, and passengers traveling through Burbank Bob Hope Airport between Friday, November 16 and Monday, November 26 will experience higher-than-normal passenger traffic due to the Thanksgiving holiday.

The Airport offers travel tips to help passengers prepare for a safe and enjoyable holiday. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has prepared the TSA Traveler’s Guide to help ensure passengers are familiar with what items are prohibited, including the 3-1-1 rule for liquids and gels in carry-ons, and traveling with gifts and food. Visit www.tsa.gov for more information.

Passengers are encouraged to give themselves 1-1/2 to 2 hours to find parking, check their luggage and go through the security checkpoint to ensure that they are at the gate in time for their flight.
