PORTLAND, Maine — The Portland International Jetport is advising all passengers traveling between 3 and 8.30 p.m. Friday, March 30, to be at the jetport two hours before their departure time and to check with their airline for any updates in departure times.

Jetport Director Paul Bradbury said this was advisable in light of the jetport’s typical busy Friday flight schedule and the arrival of President Barack Obama late in the afternoon.

Obama is visiting Portland to attend fundraising and campaign events.

Bradbury said anyone picking up passengers from the jetport Friday afternoon also should check with airlines for arrival times.
