Colonie, N.Y. - After everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving it was time to head back home. As holiday travel peaked Sunday it was smooth flying at the Albany International Airport. Airport officials anticipate more than 4,000 holiday travelers passing through. Many were delighted to experience a very easy trip back home on one of the busiest travel days of the year.
"It wasn't nearly as chaotic and hectic as I thought it would be which is a relief. Honestly it was pretty smooth. My flight was on time," said McKenna Powell.
"After 4th of July security has been wrapped around and everything so we came I think an hour and a half early and no security here today so it's not bad at all," said Jennifer Hulbert of Sprakers.
But some who decided to hit the highway this holiday weekend didn't have it as easy. The Burnell family says coming back from Ohio was a nightmare.
"Terrible weather, white out conditions, ice, multiple accidents. We're glad to be back so close to home," said Michelle Burnell of Lee, Massachusetts.
According to Triple A air travel is down this week with 90 percent of people choosing to drive.
"Probably about $300 in gas so it's a lot less than an airplane ticket," said Burnell.
Triple A anticipates another wave of travelers will head back home on Monday too.
