Augusta Regional Airport busy during Christmas season

Posted: Updated:

It seems many people are traveling over the river and through the woods this holiday season, with many doing it by airplane.

Officials at Augusta Regional say the airport has seen fully booked flights on every airline over the Christmas season.

The high number of travelers is helping the airport to see their third straight year of a record breaking total of passengers this year.

Many passengers credit the airport for making their holiday travel easier.

"It's real simple," says Sandy Lloveras, who is flying home to Tampa with his wife, Pat, after visiting their son and grandchildren in Augusta.

"This airport is so easy," adds Pat. "People are so nice. It's just real easy."

The airport says Christmas is always one of their busiest seasons, next to Thanksgiving and Masters week.
