Flying over the Holidays can be stressful, here is how to avoid the stress

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

flying over the holidays can be an extremely stressful time especially when you are making sure to reach your connecting flights in time.

Flying out of Montana is never usually a big problem. In fact the busiest months aren’t November and December they are July and August. This means making your connecting flights is where you will find the most trouble.

Normally when flying, you need at least a minimum of 45 minutes between flights, however, over the holidays you are looking at least 75 minutes. So, make sure you give yourself some time. Don’t set yourself up for failure by taking time in the airport or scheduling your incoming flight to close to the departing flight.

Make every second count! Pack food in your bag that way you don’t waste time in-between flights. Also, use the bathroom on the plane right before the descent so you don’t have to wait in any lines when you get off the plane.

Study the airport, download or print a map of the airport your connecting flight takes out of. That way you know where to go and what route to take before you even get there.
