VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – It’s going to be crowded at Vancouver International Airport today.

Unless you hitch a ride on Santa’s sleigh, you’ll be stuck in the terminal with thousands of your closest friends.

If things go wrong, Brad Davies with Virtually There Travel says parents of young children need to be prepared for anything.

“This time of year is obviously complicated due to weather, you know we might be nice and clear at YVR. You’re inbound flight from Toronto or points east and such might be complicated or compromised.”

Davies says it is a fantastic time of year to travel but, unless you have things to keep the kids occupied, you may think otherwise.
