ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Orlando International Airport is bracing for its busiest weekend, ever.

Airport officials say the airport was expecting more passengers on Saturday than at any other time in its history.

More than 160,000 passengers were expected to go through the Orlando airport during the holiday weekend.

The previous record was set last weekend when about 159,000 passengers moved through Orlando International Airport.

Airport officials were recommending that passengers arrive two or three hours before their flights because of the expected crowds.
