The official kickoff of summer travel season, Memorial Day, is fast approaching! Orbitz revealed the weekend`s busiest airports, based on customer bookings. Memorial Day weekend marks the beginning of the summer season with long weekend trips that make airports much busier that usual, said Heather Leisman, senior director of merchandising for Orbitz.



Travelers should prepare for longer lines and wait times. Simple steps like signing up for OrbitzTLC Alerts and using the airline kiosks to check-in can help ease the potential hassles and wait times.
