Thanksgiving Travel Back to Pre-Pandemic Levels

This will be one of the busiest weekends for travel all year, with people celebrating Thanksgiving with loved ones that they could not see last year because of COVID. Public health experts say as long as you are vaccinated there is no need to be concerned about gathering together.

If you are flying, you will be required to wear a mask at the airport and on board the plane. If you are not vaccinated, doctors advise that you get a Covid test before heading out.

At the Cincinnati Northern Kentucky International Airport, CVG estimates Thanksgiving travel volume to be 90-95 percent of 2019 levels. The busiest days will likely be Wednesday and Sunday. To check the wait time to get through security, CLICK HERE.

As travelers prepare for their trips, CVG says these are the changes this year and things to plan for:

  • Travelers should remember to pack a mask or two as they are required to be worn inside the airport and on the aircraft.
  • CVG’s Terminal Garage, ValuPark and Valet service will be open for travelers.
  • Ground transportation drop-off and pick-up locations have changed with the opening of the new rental car and ground transportation center. Travelers can view those changes and other updates to CVG’s facilities
