Airport officials said passengers should arrive two hours early for domestic flights and three hours early for international travel, particularly during peak hours of 6 to 9 a.m., 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. With winter storms affecting some portions of the country, travelers were urged to contact their airlines to check flight times. Things were proceeding relatively smoothly at Los Angeles International Airport this morning, with airport officials reporting no delays for inbound and departing flights. Nearly 2 million people are expected to pass through LAX between Dec. 21 and Jan. 2, up 3 percent over last year’s Christmas-New Year Holiday period. Tom Winfrey, a spokesman for Los Angeles World Airports, the Los Angeles city agency that operates LAX and LA/Ontario International Airport, credited an improvement in the weather for the absence of major delays for arriving flights this morning. To the extent that there was passenger congestion at LAX terminals, it was consistent with the pattern of heavier holiday traffic, he said. Mostly full flights are forecast for the remainder of the holiday travel period. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
