NCR travel expert offers tips for eliminating the stress of holiday air travel
DULUTH, Ga. – The holidays, when millions of people take to the skies to visit friends and family, are the busiest time of the year at the nation’s airports. But long lines of people carrying too many bags can turn anticipation to anxiety, leaving many travelers wishing they were anywhere or doing anything else.
A survey conducted for NCR Corporation asked potential holiday travelers what other challenging and unpleasant tasks they would rather do than wait in line*. Thirty-five percent of respondents said they would prefer to shop, 24% said wrap gifts and 22% said they would rather clean up after the holiday dinner. Other responses included: sleeping on a sleeper sofa (18%), spending time with in-laws (17%), wearing holiday themed sweaters/outfits (10%), braving the mall to return gifts (10%) and listening to “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer” again (9%).
For travelers heading to the nation’s airports this holiday season, NCR Travel Division Vice President and General Manager Tyler Craig offers several tips for making the experience easier and less stressful.
