During the busy winter and summer travel seasons, the Airport will be experiencing activity to and from our non-stop destination partners in Salt Lake City, Seattle, Los Angeles, Denver, Portland, Chicago and San Francisco. Along with the influx of visitors to the airport, comes a greater need for effective travel planning.

To that end and to insure your successful journeys, we are STRONGLY advising all travelers to arrive at the Airport at least 90 minutes prior to scheduled departure time in the summer or when the weather is good in the winter, but at least 2 hours is strongly encouraged, especially during bad weather.  In the event that Mother Nature intervenes in your travel plans, you will be contacted by your air carrier, who will provide you with information regarding alternative transportation to another airport, so that you will still arrive at your destination on time.

IT IS RECOMMENDED YOU ARRIVE 2 HOURS EARLY – BUT NO LESS THAN 90 MINUTES

It is recommended that passengers always check-in at least 2 hours before your scheduled departure time but no less than 90 minutes (the TSA Checkpoint is usually open 90 minutes before flight time). During the winter and when the weather is bad, please allow more time if you are traveling during the holidays or peak travel times and check the weather diversion page for more information about procedures during inclement weather for each airline.

SECURITY
