My Town: Airport celebrates spring break with party for passengers

My Town: Airport celebrates spring break with party for passengers

CASCADE TOWNSHIP, Mich.—The Gerald R. Ford International Airport is preparing for its busiest time of year by bringing back a travel favorite.

Passenger Appreciation Days returns to the airport’s Grand Hall Thursday, April 2. Airport Executive Director Brian Ryks says the celebration serves as a way to thank the community for supporting the airport.  Travelers who pass through the area can pick up free refreshments, food and freebies and enter prize drawings and contests.  The bon voyage celebration will run from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day through Saturday, April 4.

Ryks reminds travelers passing through the airport during spring break to give themselves extra time.  More passengers mean fewer parking spots and longer lines at security checkpoints. The Transportation Security Administration is urging travelers to arrive at the airport at least two hours before their plane leaves.
