If you’re catching a flight this holiday season, Eric Everts with Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport says you’re in luck because flight delays are minimal in Phoenix and the recently opened extension of the Sky Train is making moving between terminals and the rental car center easier than ever.

“It saves a tremendous amount of time,” Everts said, “especially at those high-rush hours where there might be a lot of traffic or curb congestion," said Everts.

Everts says travelers can hop on at the 44th Street station, or the new 24th Street station that opened this week. Sky Train is free to ride, runs 24 hours a day, and now takes travelers through the full length of the airport.
