Getaway Friday and Labor Day Monday will be the busiest days at Los Angeles International Airport this holiday weekend when a record 835,000 fliers are expected.

Airport officials on Wednesday said they expect a 7% increase in LAX travelers over last year, which means more than 200,000 people a day will file through the airport over the four-day travel period.

Auto traffic, too, is expected to rise, with more than 310,600 vehicles predicted to drive through the airport's Central Terminal Area this weekend.

LAX suggests taking a shuttle van, bus, Metro Rail Green Line, taxis, limousines or the FlyAway bus, which provides service to and from Hollywood, Santa Monica, Union Station, Van Nuys and Westwood.
