Flying out of Dallas Love Field Airport? Officials say you should get there 3 hours early due to high traffic

DALLAS – Officials at Love Field Airport are asking travelers to arrive at least three hours early on Thursday.

Airport officials said baggage handling is running at full capacity and the “extremely high number of departing passengers checking in bags is causing congestion in the check-in process.”

CBS News Texas Chopper flew over the airport around 11:30 a.m. and showed a streak extending outside the airport.

Earlier that morning, the airport asked travelers to arrive at least two hours earlier, but this was later extended to three hours.

One traveler told CBS News Texas she waited in line for more than two hours and still wasn’t done.

The airport says additional measures are being taken to limit baggage loads.

This story is still in development.
