Check-in Information


The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requires airline gate check-in inside the airport to close 30 minutes prior to departure, however, if you’re checking bags it is recommended to arrive at least 1 hour prior to your scheduled departure. For your convenience, you can also check in online. To do so, please select the airline you’ll be traveling.
