SPOKANE, wash--The Monday before Christmas is historically one of the busiest travel days of the year. Though travelers formed long lines at the Spokane International Airport Monday, the disruptions were minimal.
Airport spokesperson Todd Woodard said even though thousands of people were in and out of the airport, good weather made for smooth sailing.
Officials said they expected delays due to snowstorms in the Northeast, but the worst they saw occurred Monday afternoon and lasted only five minutes.
A couple of flights were cancelled out of Portland, but not because of the weather. Those passengers were able to depart on other flights.
Airport officials said people who are traveling for the holidays should plan to be in the ticket line 90 minutes before their scheduled departure.
