Today is the second busiest travel day of the year, only following this Sunday.

We are monitoring departures and arrivals from our local airport, Corpus Christi International, all day long to be sure travelers are in the know.

As of 7 p.m., all scheduled arrivals and departures are on time.

One issue travelers may face at CCIA today is parking, according to Kim Bridger, spokesperson for CCIA.

Long-term and covered parking lots could possibly fill up today. Travelers may need to pay more to park in short-term parking. 

An overfill lot is on standby just in case it is needed, according to Bridger.

2.93 million people are forecast to fly today, the day before Thanksgiving, according to Airlines for America.
