Plan ahead: Here’s when travelers get to the airport

Exclusive data from Blacklane gives holiday flyers airport insights and reveals how the pandemic changed pre-flight behaviors.

Travelers don’t follow airline and airport advice about when to get to the airport. As peak holiday travel approaches, that could lead to high stress, especially for international departures. 

Pre-flight guidance typically says to arrive two hours before domestic flights and three hours before international flights. New data from Blacklane’s “How Early Do Travelers Get to the Airport?” white paper reveals, for the first time, flyers’ post-pandemic behavior across 35 countries.
