Most of the outgoing travelers CBS4 interviewed at the airport on Friday reported smooth sailing.

“It was actually very easy, we came right in, went straight into parking. No wait, no nothing. Came in, checked right in,” said Kate Lamb.

Kristina Gragg, who is heading to Tuscon, arrived at the airport a full two hours before her flight.

“I think I’ve got a good amount of time,” she told CBS4. “I was a little nervous, especially with what just happened in Atlanta.”

Thousands more airline passengers will also be arriving in Denver for the holidays. Some of those folks with some extra time might wish to stop and enjoy the airport’s free ice skating rink, which is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. this month.
