REDMOND, OR -- About 10% more people are expected to travel through the Redmond Airport over the next several days, compared to last Memorial Day Weekend. Airport Director Zach Bass says it’s important to prepare for the crowds, "Making sure you’re out here early, especially for those early morning flights. Give yourself at least an hour and a half, two hours to get through security and make sure you’re ready for that flight to take off." He also suggests double checking carry-on luggage for hazardous items, including weapons or loose ammunition, and be ready to remove snacks and electronics larger than a cell phone, as you go through security.


In an effort to address well-known parking shortages during peak times, Bass says the airport has expanded its options, "We’ve opened up a credit card-only lot. It’s the first turn on your right, when you come into the airport loop, and there’s about a hundred extra spots in there. So, we have more availability this holiday season than we have in the past." He says it should be more efficient, "There’s no attendant there. You pull in, you receive your ticket and on your way out, you pay with a credit card and you’re free to leave."
