TSA Checkpoint Hours of Operation

Plan Ahead Holiday Travel

Arrive early. Allow extra time for parking. We will have ample parking available for travelers and will open a remote overflow lot located on Ida J Gadsden Dr. if needed, and will provide a shuttle service to/from the Terminal. When meeting arriving passengers, meeters and greeters are encouraged to use the Airport Cell Phone Lot. The Lot is free, but drivers must stay with their vehicles at all times.
Please allow extra time for parking and plan to arrive at least 2-3 hours prior to scheduled departure time.
