Winter Weather Reminders
January 24, 2014
RICHMOND, Virginia (January 24, 2014) - In Richmond, winter months offer potential for snow, ice, and the ever fun "wintery mix." In the event of inclement weather, you can help to make your trip go as smooth as possible by checking with your airline regarding your flight status.
In addition, passengers should have the numbers to all airlines, hotels and rental car agencies they may be using in preparation for potential weather delays.
Also, the Transportation Security Administration has a downloadable app (called MyTSA) for mobile devices that tracks airport delays, offers travel tips and posts security checkpoint wait times.
