FLL Expects 400K Passengers This Memorial Weekend

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — More than 400,000 travelers are expected to fly in and out of the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport this Memorial Day weekend.

The statement from the Broward County Aviation Department says the airport is ready to accommodate the high volume of passengers during the holiday period that runs Thursday through May 30.

The department said it anticipates an average of 59,000 passengers a day during the seven-day travel period. Aviation Department officials expect the busiest travel days to be Thursday and Friday.

Spokesman Gregory Meyer says the airport averaged the same number of passengers last Memorial weekend.
