(MIAMI, FLA) — Tomorrow is the first day of winter and a bomb cyclone could snarl holiday travel across the country. Miami International’s Greg Chin says they’re expecting 150-thousand passengers per day from now until January 6th.

Spokesman Greg Chin says they broke Thanksgiving travel records this year and they’re expecting to do the same this Christmas. Travelers should arrive at least three hours before a domestic flight and four ahead of international travel and get dropped off because parking is almost at capacity.

Chin says more people are traveling now post pandemic, but you can still get COVID testing at the airport. There are two rapid COVID testing sites still open in Concourses E and J.

Meanwhile, nationwide, airlines are issuing travel waivers ahead of a winter storm forecasters say could make a mess of holiday travel this week. United Airlines, with headquarters and a major hub in Chicago, is offering inclement weather waivers to travelers in the Midwest, Texas, and the East Coast. American Airlines, Delta, Southwest, Jet Blue and Alaska Airlines are also offering waivers for a number of flight paths and dates.
