Hartsfield-Jackson Airport says it expects at least 2.5 million passengers over the Thanksgiving holiday week.

On Tuesday, Channel 2 Actions News stopped by the airport to see how things were looking.

The lines were moving slowly, as expected.


While travelers are dealing with longer wait times, they’re also seeing higher prices.

The most congested travel days will be Wednesday and Sunday.

There will be extra Atlanta police officers at the airport during those times.
