How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Albany
These practical hints and tips about airport security procedures will save you a lot of time on your way to Albany:

  • Airport security personnel will expect to see your passport and boarding pass at the checkpoint. Tuck them away in an accessible place, so they’re ready for inspection.
  • Take off your jewellery, belt and shoes before arriving at the airport security checkpoint. Items such as these are not allowed to pass through the body scanner.
  • Laptops, tablets and other electronic devices must be placed in a tray to be X-rayed.
  • When you approach the security checkpoint, you’ll be asked to place all liquids, gels and creams in a separate tub for inspection. Make sure they’re all stored in containers no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and sealed in a clear zip-lock bag.
  • Loosen your shoelaces as you approach the body scanner. Depending on the type of shoes you’ve got on, security may ask you to take them off.
  • Pack any multi-tools or other pointy items in your checked luggage. Security personnel don’t allow such things in carry-on baggage.

How to find cheap flights

What is the best day to buy a plane ticket?

Airfares offered on Friday tend to be the cheapest, according to flight demand on Travelocity.ca in 2021. Purchasing your airfares on a Thursday or Saturday can also provide better value, however our advice if you’re looking to save money is to avoid booking on a Wednesday or Sunday. Our data shows that those two days have the highest ticket values on average, so keep this in mind if you’re browsing flight deals.

 

What are the cheapest days to fly?

Frequent travellers may already know this, earlier in the week is often the cheapest time to fly. Flights departing on a Monday are the cheapest of the week. Since flights towards the middle of the week tend to be more popular, this causes the prices to rise. This is why, on average, airfares booked on Travelocity.ca in 2021 were most expensive for Wednesday departures.

 

How far in advance can you book a flight?

Here’s the deal: It is typically possible to start comparing international airfares on Travelocity.ca up to 12 months in advance. However, it does depend on the carrier as not all airlines release their prices that far out. According to our 2021 flight demand trends, last minute planners can still bag a bargain with some of the cheapest fares appearing 2-4 weeks prior to their travel dates.

*According to flight demand on Travelocity.ca from January to December 2021. Savings are subject to change and may vary depending on selections made.

And if you're staying downtown, you can rent a car from one of the rental companies near the luggage claim area. The Capital District Transportation Authority (CDTA) offers bus services to the city via route 737; the bus typically runs from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., but note that stops are infrequent for both (every 20 to 30 minutes in the morning and every hour or more later). Also, it's nice to know the airport is only 7 miles from the city, so if your Albany flights arrive early or late or you don't want to wait for the bus, you can hail a cab at an affordable price. Booking a limo is also an option.

  • The Desmond Hotel Albany – This Colonial-style property offers luxurious lodging in their 300+ guestrooms and suites. For a truly unique experience, reserve one of their the magnificent duplexes with king size four-post beds.

Before you head downtown to visit the many shops, restaurants, and museums on your Albany itinerary, there are a few things to do close to ALB airport that you may want to consider first. We recommend the following popular attractions:

  • Vischer Ferry Nature & Historic Preserve – Located along the Mohawk River, this nature sanctuary features hiking, birding, and nature trails—as well as cross-country skiing and even a few secret fishing holes.
  • Albany County Hockey Facility – While you could stretch your legs after your long flight on the trails at Vischer Ferry, why not put your body on ice, instead. Right next to the airport, the Albany County Hockey Facility has open-rink ice skating multiple times a week. We don’t recommend trying a Double Salchow without a proper warmup, though.
  • Lark Street – So your trip to the Empire State didn’t include any time in the Big Apple. No worries. You can experience the same Greenwich Village vibe in the bars, bistros, and boutiques along Lark Street.
