Summer Travel Tips
With the busy summer travel season upon us, here are a few tips to help make planning your getaway a little easier.
Getting the Right Flight

The less you pack, the more money you may save as most airlines charge a fee for checked bags. Focus on the essentials when packing and consider purchasing items at your destination.

At Louisville International Airport, those peak periods are daily from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. For travelers' convenience, the TSA security checkpoint at Louisville International is open daily from 4:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. For additional TSA information, visit www.tsa.gov.
