Travel Tips

Plan to arrive at the airport at least 2 hours prior to departure time. The extra time is needed to clear the heighten security requirements. 

A government-issued ID (federal, state or local) is required. Be prepared to show this ID at various locations, such as the ticket counter, security checkpoint and gate. 

Passengers must obtain their boarding pass before proceeding to the security checkpoint. Airline boarding passes can be obtained at curbside check-in, ticket counters or automated kiosks located on the third level of the terminal if not printed during an online check-in. 

Refer to the TSA permitted and prohibited items checklist on the Website to ensure a smooth screening process. 

Travelers should clearly mark their bags. 

The number of carry-on bags is limited to one personal item such as a purse or briefcase and one bag (size to fit in overhead bin or under seat). 

Refrain from wrapping packages in checked and carry-on baggage. All wrapped packages are subject to opening by the TSA. 

Only ticketed passengers will be permitted in the concourses - those meeting and greeting travelers can do so by waiting areas located outside of, but near security checkpoints, on the 2nd level. Several restaurants and gift shops are available to those waiting on arriving passengers.  An additional meet and greet area is located on Level 1, Baggage Claim.  Please note, while there is a waiting area in baggage claim, you are not allowed to park curbside in the passenger pick up area outside of Baggage Claim and walk inside to meet your passengers.  Unattended cars will be towed as required by Federal Security regulations.  

Equipment used for screening checked baggage will damage your undeveloped film. Never place film in your checked baggage. Place film in your carry-on baggage or request a hand inspection. 

Parking is available in the Premium Lot, Short Term and Long Term Parking garages and the Economy Lot. The Economy Lot provides frequent shuttle service to and from the arrival and departure levels. 

Vehicles are strictly prohibited from stopping or being unattended at curbside departure and arrival areas.
