Friday sluggish journey day at BIA after vacation uptick

BANGOR, Maine (WABI) – Black Friday is historically one of the slower travel times on the post-vacation route.

There was evidence of this at Bangor International Airport on Friday morning …

Airport officials said they had been much busier in the last few days leading up to Thanksgiving, but nowhere near as many as in years past.

Joshua Thomas, a student at the Maine Maritime Academy, was preparing to fly home after completing the semester in Castine.

He said he was a well-trained traveler, and flying in the pandemic requires just a little extra precaution.

“Yeah, it’s a little different,” said Thomas. “I do what I usually do, I just stay away from everyone as best I can and stay to myself. So it’s quiet, it’s quiet and something like that. Get a book and sit down and read and watch the planes soar in and out. “

The mask, sometimes you just want to pull it down, but just leaving it on doesn’t bother me too much. It all depends on the type of mask you are also wearing

According to the travel website Kayak, Sunday is one of the busiest travel days of the year.
