Families made their way through Terminal 1 last year at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport for the MEA break.

Despite pricey airline tickets and packed flights, Minnesotans are expected to flock to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport this week during the annual fall break for teacher conferences.

The Minnesota Educator Academy (MEA) break means that school-age kids across the state have Thursday and Friday off - a long weekend that many families use for a mini-vacation before the holidays.

The result is that Wednesday and Thursday are expected to be the busiest days for airport travelers this week, according to the Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC), which operates MSP.
