Preparing for Holiday Travel

This year’s holidays are quite different from last year, but it will also be different from years’ past. While we’re able to celebrate with friends and family again, for many this will be the first time we’ve traveled in nearly two years.
Are you ready to travel? Here are some helpful tips to help get you back into the travel groove, whether by plane, train or automobile.

• Check your ID’s expiration and Global Entry/TSA Precheck status. Passports and driver’s licenses are the most popular ID forms used when traveling – confirm before you travel that they are up to date and haven’t expired. When traveling internationally, many countries require at least two blank passport pages so be sure to check for that as well.

• TSA Precheck and CLEAR offer expedited services through security. TSA Precheck is managed through TSA and travelers won’t need to remove their laptop and remove their shoes. CLEAR offers a touchless experience through security. It uses your biometrics to confirm your ID and you are able to access security without additional identification. CLEAR is available at over 50 airports, is a paid for service but does offer trial programs – a helpful option when lines are long.

In addition to CLEAR and TSA Precheck, LGA’s Terminal B offers BFast, a paid for service that allows travelers, for $15, to move to the front of the line. Air General Traveler Services has been updating our clientele on this new innovation.

• When you’re ready to pack, remember there are rules about what’s allowed – and not allowed – in your carry on bag. The TSA website provides all the information needed to make sure you can keep everything you packed. The previous rule of 3.4oz (100ml) containers in a one quart bag still applies but they’ve allowed hand sanitizer containers of up to 12oz for the time being.

• Whether by plane or train, make sure to check in online and opt for notifications for any changes to your itinerary. It’s also helpful to follow the airport and train station social media accounts for any updates, particular during the winter months.

• The mask mandate for airports is still in place until at least March 18, 2022.
Some airports offer wipes and sanitizing stations and have introduced cleaner security trays. Air General Traveler Services enhances this service and offers disposable bags and wipes down trays for extra cleanliness measures. More and more shops are opening up again for those last- minute purchases.

• If you’re staying at a hotel or resort, the pandemic has changed much of what you’ve long expected for your stay. Housekeeping and restaurant offerings have changed and it is debatable what services will return. Check with your hotel for any updates and offers.

• Cities all over the US have different policies and mandates. What you know about masks and social distancing in your city may be different in another town; friends, family and city accounts will keep you updated on the latest updates for where you’re traveling.

It’s wonderful to be able to visit friends and family again so let’s do our part to keep ourselves and our loved ones safe and secure. Have a great holiday season and we look forward to seeing you in 2022!


Air General Traveler Services has expanded its presence at New York’s LaGuardia Airport, now offering Meet & Greet concierge service at all terminals.

Air General first launched Meet and Greet service in early 2014 at Newark Liberty International Airport and expanded quickly to other airports around the country and to train stations including in Boston, Washington DC, Chicago and New York. In early 2020 Air General Traveler Services launched Meet and Greet service at LaGuardia Terminal B. Airlines operating in Terminal B include American Airlines, United Airlines, Southwest Airlines and Air Canada.

Other airlines operating at New York’s LaGuardia Airport include Delta, Frontier, JetBlue, Spirit and Westjet.

The Meet and Greet service supports travelers arriving at the airport via car, limo, etc. and helps them with baggage, check-in, lounge access, personal shopping, transfers, security and anything else they might require. It is tailored to individual needs. The highly skilled Greeters are discreet, flexible and easily adaptable to any situation. Our reservations team is always in the background to assist with rebookings if necessary. Passengers arriving on a flight are met at the arrival gate, escorted to their luggage, and remain in communications with ground transportation so that the journey from the aircraft to a waiting vehicle is easy.

LaGuardia Airport has been undergoing a $4 billion dollar transformation. The new Terminal B opened in June 2020, featuring a bright and airy Arrivals and Departures Hall, new restaurants and shops and beautiful artwork. Construction continues at the airport to create an upgraded, state of the art experience for travelers as evidenced by the newly renovated Delta Terminal D concourse, which is still a work in progress.

LaGuardia Airport is truly becoming a world class airport!
