Ventura and Santa Barbara County travelers planning to fly this Thanksgiving holiday weekend are being warned to allow lots of extra time to catch your flights.

Santa Barbara Airport officials say if you’re travelling on the two busiest travel days, today and Sunday, you should arrive two hours prior to your takeoff time to find parking, check in with your airline, and go through security.

If you’re headed to LAX, which is expected to be one of the busiest airports in the nation this weekend, officials are saying to give yourself three hours to get through parking, check-in, and security.

Officials at both airports remind you that if you are carrying gifts, make sure they are unwrapped, even if they are packed in baggage, because they are subject to search.
