Increased Traffic at XNA for Walmart Shareholders

Fox 24

If you’re traveling through XNA this week, don’t be alarmed when you see a lot more people than normal.

Hundreds have been coming through the airport for the Walmart Shareholders’ Meeting. 

Director of public safety for the airport, Gilbert Neil said safety is key with so many travelers coming through the airport. 

Neil said there will be more police and fire personnel on duty to make sure everything goes smoothly.

“We’ve just gotten the process better,” Neil said. “Trial and error and just have learned what needs to be done to get the people pushed through.”

Also, if you plan on traveling out of XNA over the weekend, Neil suggests getting to the airport a little earlier than normal. That’s when the shareholders will start to head home.
