Several hundred people are expected to fly out of Charlottesville-Albemarle airport today. Traveling with that many people is hard enough, but add kids to the equation and it will be a long day for many travelers.
For anyone traveling this Thanksgiving holiday, their sure to run into traffic and long lines. With all the stress of holiday travel, a younger group of travelers are taking it all in stride.
"I play video games," said one young traveler.
"I don't really care, except I do get kind of bored," explained another.
Although a long wait could bore anyone, several kids find ways to entertain themselves during their extended time at an airport.
"Traveling with a small kid is something that you've got to prepare for," said George Kiefer, traveling with his 1-year-old daughter. "It can be a lot of fun and it can also be very hectic, but she's willing to help carry the bags so she's a trooper."
While most of the kids traveling through the Charlottesville-Albemarle Airport will not have to wait in long lines, if they do somewhere else, they already have a game plan.
"[I will] sit with my dad and we'll fall a sleep," Alex Barham, 8-year-old traveler.
The Charlottesville-Albemarle Airport expects nearly 5,000 passengers to travel through the airport this week.
