LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Los Angeles International Airport officials are forecasting a record-breaking July 4 travel period for the facility, with 2.86 million passengers expected over an 11-day period between Friday and July 9.
``Summer is here, and the holiday travel season is in full swing. With a little advance planning, a trip to the airport can be stress-free and set the tone for an amazing summer getaway'' Trevor Daley, deputy executive director for external affairs at Los Angeles World Airports, said Thursday.
``We wish all of our guests and employees a wonderful July 4th holiday -- just remember to give yourself a little extra time if you're traveling on our busiest days.''
The core of the holiday period, seven days between June 29 and July 5, is expected to show a 2.44 percent increase over a similar period in 2017, officials said, with 1.81 million passengers expected, versus 1.74 million for the 2017 holiday.
With July 4 falling on a Wednesday this year, the three busiest days are expected to be Friday, Sunday and Monday after the holiday.
