Predicting exactly when the lines will be long for #SummerVacation2016 is challenging. There are definitely known peak times, such as early morning, mid-morning and late afternoon. But, during the summer, it is not uncommon for lines to unexpectedly swell at any time of day. Even so, there will be times when passengers arrive early and get through quickly. So what can travelers do with the extra time? Here are a few suggestions.
- Jet Sets: WRWA and Delaware North, the airport’s food concessionaire, sponsor live music in the terminal every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Find out who’s playing at flyokc.com/jetsets.
- Public Art: The sculpture “Prayer” by world-renowned Oklahoma artist Allan Houser is one of several works of art travelers can enjoy. Other works by Dale Chihuly, Tomoaki Orikasa, and Jo Davidson are also on display. More info is at flyokc.com/gallery.
- Grab: Don’t want to stand in more lines? Mobile food ordering is now available at WRWA. The Grab Mobile App lets you pre-order your food wherever you are and receive a text when it is ready for pickup.
- H.A.L.O. Therapy Dogs: 12 volunteer dog teams roam the airport throughout the month providing comfort and stress relief to travelers and visitors.
- Get Your Steps: The WRWA concourse is nearly ¼ mile from end to end. Just two times down and back and you’ve got a mile in for the day. Don't be afraid to leave the gate, go for a walk!
