ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque International Sunport is seeing modest traffic as some travelers are getting a head start on holiday travel.

Blanca Vazquez left Albuquerque on Tuesday to begin her annual Thanksgiving vacation to Chicago early due to travel fears and the expected jump in people traveling.

Vazquez says she didn’t mind because the early jump allows her to visit family longer.

Meanwhile, 26-year-old Fanni Farago and her sister 30-year-old Flora Farago, came into Albuquerque from Tempe, Arizona on Tuesday for a family road trip to Red River, New Mexico.

Fanni Farago says low gas prices made a trip to the mountain hamlet attractive.

The motoring organization AAA says an estimated 46.9 million Americans are expected to take a car, plane, bus or train at least 50 miles from home over the long holiday weekend.
