Spring Travel Tips: Arrive Early & Be Prepared
Spring break has sprung! 🌷 Which means if you’re flying out of SBA during March/April, be prepared for some potentially busy travel days. By following these tips, you can ensure your trip is as smooth as possible:
🚙 Arrive early to park at one of SBA's three parking lots. During peak travel days, there is often limited parking available in the Long Term Parking Lot. The Economy Parking Lot (140 Frederick Lopez Road) is open 24/7 with a shuttle running every 15 minutes. Catching a ride to SBA is also highly recommended: recruit a friend, grab a taxi, carpool, or utilize a rideshare service!
🧴 You can still carry up to 12 oz of hand sanitizer in your carry-on.
🧳 Speaking of carry-ons, please only bring two carry-on items per person to help ensure the TSA security checkpoint runs smooth and quickly! Visit TSA's website for more travel tips.
💻 Check with your airline for updates on your flight status.
📲 Download and use a mobile boarding pass to help limit person-to-person contact; this also helps to keep the lines short and your travel easier!
⌚ Arrive 2 hours early, especially during a peak travel times. SBA is a beautiful place to relax and enjoy a meal and coffee from the restaurant, or a book and snack from the locally owned shop!
🚗 Picking up passengers? Remember you cannot park your vehicle at the curb for any duration of time or leave your vehicle unattended. There are two nearby cell phone lots available for those waiting to pick up their loved ones.
