Summer air travel with the family can be stressful, but it doesn’t have to be. Palm Beach International Airport (PBI) makes flying easy and convenient with its close proximity to I-95 and the Treasure Coast, extremely short TSA wait times and affordable parking. PBI has a great mix of airline carriers, both legacy and low-cost, making it the perfect choice for everyone looking to fly this summer.

“In addition to offering numerous flight options, ensuring an enjoyable travel experience that fits within the family budget is important at PBI,” according to Palm Beach County Director of Airports Laura Beebe.

“I encourage everyone to fly PBI and experience why this Airport continues to be recognized as South Florida’s favorite airport.” said Beebe. “Over the past 12 months, many airports have seen a record number of people booking flights. That is true of PBI as well, with almost 8 million passengers passing through the Airport in 2023.”

PBI has also been recognized by U.S. Customs and Border Protection as having some of the shortest overall TSA wait times in the country. “Providing our passengers with an exceptional experience is our goal,” said Beebe. “We are currently renovating and expanding Concourse B to make the PBI experience even better.”

Phase One of the Concourse B project includes new restrooms and a brand new sit-down restaurant. The next phase will include the addition of two gates, expanded seating areas and a food hall. There will also be a sensory room to create a calming space for travelers with autism and other sensory sensitivities, as well as adult changing tables to accommodate the needs of disabled passengers and their caregivers.

Beebe said she expects PBI to have continued growth in the months to come.
