Summer 2021 Information for Travelers

If it's been a while since you've traveled by air, keep in mind things at the airport have changed since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Here are some tips to make your travel experience as safe and seamless as possible.


Tips for Travelers

Departing Passengers:

  • Arrive at least two hours prior to scheduled departure.
  • Parking in the Terminal 1 Long Term garage is in high demand. Consider using the Terminal 1 Economy Lot instead, allowing an extra 30 minutes for a shuttle to the terminal.
  • Check in online and use a mobile boarding pass to avoid lines at the airport.
  • Consider traveling with a carry-on only to save time at check-in.
  • Pack hand sanitizer; if you forget, hand sanitizer dispensers are located throughout the terminals.
  • Some shops and restaurants may be closed or have reduced hours. What's open?

Arriving Passengers:

  • Wait times for ground transportation may be longer than you've previously experienced. Know your options.
  • Across the nation rental cars are in high demand and supply is low. Make reservations in advance and expect to wait in line.
