There were a lot of extra people in Lexington for the Breeders' Cup, but the process of getting them flown out of town went smoothly, according to a spokeswoman for Blue Grass Airport.
The airport had planned for the big weekend for a year. There were extra workers at shops and restaurants, and extra screeners at security checkpoints, said Tiffany Hart, marketing coordinator.
In addition, the airlines flew bigger planes into Lexington Sunday to handle the increase in commercial traffic, Hart said.
The result was that there were no long delays or problems, she said. "It has been very smooth," Hart said.
Never miss a local story.
The airlines expected to serve 4,000 commercial passengers Sunday, up from about 2,700 on a normal Sunday, Hart said.
