SLC Int’l Airport officials expect spike in travelers today
SALT LAKE CITY — If you’re headed to the Salt Lake City International Airport on Sunday, officials ask that you come prepared to deal with extra people.
Airport spokeswoman Nancy Volmer says the Sunday after Thanksgiving is one of those very busy days at most airports.
Specifically, Volmer says they expect 13,000 to 14,000 people to pass through the airport doors today.
That number represents approximately 3,00o to 4,000 more people than normally use the airport on any particular day.
And that number doesn’t include travelers who are stopping at SLC International to make connections with other flights.
It’s been a little over a month since the new Concourse B debuted at the newly renovated SLC Int’l Airport. Salt Lake City is a Delta Airlines hub and occupies all of the gates in Concourse A-west, as well as a few fates in Concourse B.
Alaska, American, Frontier, JetBlue, Southwest, and United Airlines use the gates of Concourse B.
