As the long-awaited Memorial Day weekend arrives, travelers should brace themselves for an increase in traffic, both on the roads and in the skies, as people eagerly embark on summer adventures.

Officials at the South Bend International Airport have revealed that they anticipate every flight to and from South Bend to be at full capacity. In light of this, the airport has advised passengers to arrive at least 90 minutes to 2 hours early to ensure they do not miss their flights.

Julie Curtis, spokesperson for SBN, emphasized the importance of preparedness, urging travelers to pack their patience, stay updated on flight statuses, and arrive early to navigate the expected surge in passenger volume.

For those opting to hit the road, it's important to anticipate delays as traffic levels are predicted to reach heights not seen in several years. AAA has reported that over 42 million travelers will be taking to the highways this holiday weekend.

Sgt. Ted Bohner of the Indiana State Police shared his optimism for a fantastic weekend filled with enjoyable activities and great weather. He advised travelers to make a few key choices at crucial moments to ensure a smooth journey and kick off the summer season on a positive note.

Based on expectations, Friday and Sunday are anticipated to be the busiest travel days of the weekend. To avoid traffic congestion, it is advisable to plan ahead and hit the road early, giving ample time to reach your destination without undue delays.

As travelers gear up for the holiday weekend, it is essential to remain mindful of road safety, practice patience, and be considerate of fellow travelers. Ensuring a smooth and enjoyable experience for everyone will contribute to a memorable start to the summer season.

So pack your bags, plan your routes, and get ready to kick off the summer with a memorable Memorial Day weekend adventure.
