Killeen-Fort Hood Regional Airport prepared for heavy holiday travel

Half a dozen flights expected today and tomorrow

KILLEEN, Texas (Nov. 23, 2022) – The Killeen-Fort Hood Regional Airport (GRK) is expecting heavy travel for the Thanksgiving holiday, with the busiest travel day being today and the Sunday after Thanksgiving.


There have been five to six flights scheduled each day this week and again on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. For Thanksgiving tomorrow, there is a holiday schedule of only two flights.


“The Killeen-Fort Hood Regional Airport is always happy to serve as your Central Texas hometown airport,” Michael Wilson, Executive Director of Aviation said. “We encourage locals not to start their trip with a road trip, and to fly local to save time, money and your sanity.”


Residents are asked to practice extreme patience as AAA reports 4.5 million Americans will be traveling by plane for the holiday— a nearly 8% increase over 2021 numbers. 


GRK has the advantage of non-stop flights to the Dallas-Fort Worth airport, a number one-ranked airport on-time performance of 85%, close parking just seconds from the terminal, quicker, shorter lines at the security checkpoint, and brand new food and beverage options.
