Springfield-Branson National Airport officials say there are things you can do to make your travel easier as you head out of Springfield for the holidays.  They suggest using an airline app, which allows customers to make and change reservations.  The apps also offer real-time flight updates and downloadable boarding passes.  You should get to the airport at least 90 minutes before your flight is scheduled to leave, don't over pack and don't wrap presents--security screeners may unwrap them for inspection.
