CHICAGO, Ill. – Los Angeles’ LAX, Chicago’s O’Hare (ORD) and Orlando International (MCO) will be the nation’s busiest airports this Thanksgiving, according to data released today.

CHICAGO, Ill. – Los Angeles’ LAX, Chicago’s O’Hare (ORD) and Orlando International (MCO) will be the nation’s busiest airports this Thanksgiving, according to data released today. Meanwhile, two other airports in California – Mineta San Jose International (SJC) and John Wayne Airport (SNA) in Orange County – as well as Kahului Airport on the Hawaiian island of Maui will be among the least crowded with holiday travelers. These are just a few of the helpful highlights from the Insider Index for Thanksgiving 2011, which also provides a host of tips and tricks to navigate the crowds and enjoy the journey to visit friends and family over the holiday.

"Während es selbstverständlich ist, dass Flughäfen in den Ferien mit ein wenig Vorausplanung stärker frequentiert werden als gewöhnlich, kann diese Heimreise zum Truthahntag tatsächlich eine unterhaltsame Erfahrung sein", sagte Jeanenne Tornatore, Senior Travel Editor bei Orbitz.com. „Darüber hinaus kann im Voraus so viel online erledigt werden - vom Einchecken und Einchecken von Gepäckstücken über die Auswahl von Sitzplätzen bis hin zur Kartierung von Umleitungen und Restaurants am Flughafen -, dass Stress minimiert und der Spaßfaktor für das, was schließlich ist, erhöht werden kann. Ein Familienurlaub für viele von uns. “

Die meisten / am wenigsten frequentierten Thanksgiving-Flughäfen

Der Insider-Index hat die 50 besten US-Flughäfen anhand von Flugbuchungen überprüft und diejenigen ermittelt, die zwischen dem 23. und 27. November 2011 am meisten und am wenigsten beschäftigt sind. Zu den Highlights des diesjährigen Index gehören:

Los Angeles International hat Chicago O'Hare in diesem Jahr von Platz 1 der am stärksten frequentierten Flughäfen verdrängt, wobei Orlando International die Top Drei abrundete
Ronald Reagan Washington National (DCA) und Atlantas Hartsfield International (ATL) fielen von der Liste der am stärksten frequentierten Flughäfen ab, während Orlando International zum ersten Mal in den letzten zwei Jahren unter die Top 10 kam.

Wie in den Vorjahren sind die drei Hauptflughäfen der Metropolregion New York (John F. Kennedy International (JFK), LaGuardia (LGA) und Newark Liberty International (EWR)) in den Top 10 der Flughäfen für den Erntedankfest aufgeführt.

Zwei Flughäfen in Nordkalifornien in der Bay-Region - Sacramento International (SMF) und Mineta San Jose International - landen auf der Liste der am wenigsten frequentierten Flughäfen und bieten eine praktikable Alternative für Reisende in der Region, die Menschenmassen vermeiden möchten.

5 Tipps für die Urlaubsreise

Airport amenities and recent rule changes by the TSA can make traveling over the holidays easier, faster and even fun. Tornatore suggests five tips to help you enjoy the journey, not just the destination during holiday travel.

Parents: Leave those laces tied!: A recent rule change by the TSA allows children 12 years old and younger to leave their shoes on when going through airport security—a welcome change and time-saver for parents. So be sure to have your children keep their shoes laced-up when waiting in the security line.

Delightful distractions: Another great perk for parents of young ones are airport play spaces and interactive exhibits. Several airports, such as Chicago O’Hare International and San Francisco International Airport have special areas designed with kids in mind. For example, at O’Hare, the Chicago Department of Aviation and the Chicago Children’s Museum have teamed up to develop Kids on the Fly. The interactive exhibit occupies children with airplane models, control towers and more. Meanwhile, adults looking to unwind and pass the time until their flight might want to consider purchasing a one-day airline club pass. Most clubs offer free Wi-Fi as well as beer, wine and cocktails as part of the entrance fee. Visit the Orbitz Blog for more delightful airport distractions while traveling over the holidays.

Do it ahead and online: Checking in and printing boarding passes at home (or downloading a virtual boarding pass to your smartphone) is a great way to skip past lines at the airport. Make sure to have a seat assignment, too. Baggage fees for some airlines are lower when paid in advance online, so consider that option as well. Finally, check the status of your flight before leaving for the airport. Orbitz customers can receive alerts on their smartphones, that can also be sent to up to six friends or family members meeting them at the airport.

Map out airport transportation and parking options: Some airport lots let you make advance reservations, while others provide real-time information on availability in each lot. Another option is to skip driving to the airport altogether by ordering a shuttle or sedan service, with reservations for many airports available on Orbitz.com or other online sites.

Choose alternate airports: If you haven’t booked your Thanksgiving travel yet – or if you’re looking ahead to Christmas or New Year’s – consider using alternative smaller airports. These are often easier to navigate and less crowded. For example, if you’re traveling to San Francisco, consider flying into San Jose or Sacramento, two of the least-busy airports serving the greater Bay Area. Chicago travelers might have better luck with Midway International (MDW), while those heading into or out of the Los Angeles area may save time by going through John Wayne Airport in Orange County.
