OKLAHOMA CITY -- Officials at Will Rogers World Airport said Friday, November 19 is the busiest travel day of the year for the airport.

Traditionally, the Wednesday before Thanksgiving is the busiest travel day. But there's been a shift this year for people flying in and out of Oklahoma City.

One thing travelers will not have to worry about is going through the controversial full-body scan. The machines have not been installed yet.

Airport spokesperson Karen Carney said travelers may have to receive a full pat-down if there is a security concern.

"If you went through the metal detector and they couldn't identify why you're setting it off. Generally, they can resolve the issue, but if they can't you would have to have a pat-down," Carney said.
