PHOENIX — Holiday travel is in full swing for Thanksgiving at Sky Harbor.

Sky Harbor says they recommend travelers get to the airport at least two hours prior to flight departure, and three hours if you're flying internationally as they deal with a very high number of travelers.

Traffic was at a standstill Tuesday night as drivers arrived at the airport, backed up onto the SR143 and Loop 202. Watch video from Tuesday night in the player above.
