Nov. 19, 2015 — CVG is getting ready for the Holiday travel season offering passengers travel tips to get you to your destination faster. The Wednesday before Thanksgiving and the Sunday and Monday after Thanksgiving will be the busiest travel days. We recommend travelers get to the airport at least 90 minutes prior to departure. Passengers should check with their airlines for the most up to date flight information.
Candace McGraw, chief executive officer, Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, commented, “With increased flight options and more capacity, we expect passenger volumes to increase approximately 10% compared to 2014.” Wm. T. (Bill) Robinson III, Kenton County Airport Board Chairman added, “Customer service is a top priority for CVG. We encourage our passengers to visit our website, where travelers can check their flight status, weather and see up to the minute security wait times for both TSA Pre-Check and general screening.”
Passengers can also take advantage of our multiple parking amenities which include: valet parking, reserved premium parking and golf cart shuttles in the garage.
