    The holiday travel season has arrived, and this Friday — six days before Thanksgiving — is expected to be the busiest travel day of the holiday season at San Francisco International Airport, according to an airport spokesperson.

    The Friday before Thanksgiving week has been the busiest holiday travel day at SFO for at least five years or so, airport spokesperson Doug Yakel said.

    "We think it’s related to most schools giving the whole week off to kids nowadays," Yakel wrote in a statement.

    As for the Sunday after Thanksgiving, that's believed to be the second busiest day of travel at SFO during the Thanksgiving holiday period, Yakel said.

    The holiday travel season for SFO kicks off this Friday and ends on Jan. 2, 2018, according to Yakel.
