There may be a few patches of ice and snow at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport but airport workers are ready for Spring Break.

The airport said it expects 3.2 million passengers during the Spring Break travel period from March 6 to March 23. That is an increase of 1.4 percent over Spring Break 2014.

“With the expected increase in spring break travelers, we have added extra help and support in the parking garages, at curbsides and in the terminals for the four busiest travel days, one of which is expected today,” said DFW Airport chief executive Sean Donohue in a statement.

The airport said it will have complimentary luggage porters at each terminal on its busiest days, March 6, 7, 14 and 15.

There are also new concessions that have recently opened in renovated sections of the airport including UFood Grill in Terminal B and Genghis Grill in Terminal E. Since much of Terminal E’s parking facility is under construction, the airport is encouraging travelers to park in the Express South Parking lot which is a five-minute bus ride from that terminal.
