CORPUS CHRISTI (KIII NEWS) - The day before Thanksgiving is considered the busiest travel day of the year. Everyone wants to get to their destination before the turkey is on the table.

For some, that means taking to the skies.

Officials at the Corpus Christi International Airport said there was a noticeable increase in the amount of people traveling Wednesday, both coming and going.

If you plan on flying Wednesday night, or when you return Friday, always have your ID and ticket ready, and try getting to the airport a little earlier because you could be met with unexpected delays.

For those hitting the roads this Thanksgiving holiday, a new report shows Texas drivers are among the worst in the country.
