The government shutdown is affecting the travel industry.
In light of the recent and ongoing government shutdown, many groups traveling have experienced longer than usual wait times at airports across the country.
Although TSA is considered “essential personnel” and required to report to work during government shutdowns, we have received many reports that airports are understaff and wait times have increased significantly.
If you or your groups are traveling in the coming days, please give yourself extra time at the airport.
Be sure to check the airport’s website for up to date wait times, as many airports report wait times in real time.
