'Year of Travel' continues into Thanksgiving holiday.

At Eppley Airfield 173,000 passengers are expected to come through during the Thanksgiving weekend. That number is up 4% from last year and 0.5% from pre-pandemic levels. Travelers are ready to get out and about this Thanksgiving. Pam Phillips said she is ready to get someplace warm. "We’re here traveling to Hawaii to see our son for Thanksgiving," she said. "It was a birthday gift.” Phillips is not alone. AAA is expecting 54 million people to be traveling over the Thanksgiving holiday; 49 million of those are driving 50 miles or more away from home, and 4.5 million Americans plan to travel by plane.
