Early bird gets the worm when flying out of XNA


The early bird gets the worm, especially when you are flying out of XNA this weekend. 

Thousands of associates will be heading back home after shareholders week through the airport, but what does this mean for travelers not with Walmart?

The traffic at XNA can be a little hectic, between weather and Walmart, but Airport Director Kelly Johnson said they have things under control. 

“This afternoon will be a little organized chaos,” XNA Director Kelly Johnson said. 

Johnson said when the Walmart Shareholders come to town it is crazy, yet fun experience. 

“You get to see a lot of people from other places, other countries, and still make your flight,” she said.

But if you aren’t traveling with Walmart, making your flight can be a little challenging. 

“There is some bus traffic coming to the airport, you don’t want to get behind a bus and not be able to get around, so give yourself extra time,” Johnson said. 

Extra time means an hour and a half before your flight. 

“Just make sure you pack your patience, we will get you through, but don’t come out late,” she said. 

It’s also a good tip to come prepared. 

“Print your boarding pass before you come out so you don’t have to stay in line,” she said.
