Arrive Early & Travel Tips

Please plan to be at the airport at least 2 hours prior to your flight departure time.
Busy season is here, and the travel experience will be different this year, so it may take extra time to check-in and get through security. 

  • Please wear a mask. A federal mask mandate requires wearing a mask at all times while inside the airport terminal buildings at SRQ. A June 10, 2021 update by the CDC no longer requires a mask to be worn in outdoor areas at SRQ. Failure to comply may result in removal and denial of re-entry. Refusing to wear a mask while inside the airport is a violation of federal law and individuals may be subject to penalties. 
  • Know what to expect before traveling. Airports, airlines, and TSA all have specific COVID-19 travel guidelines and tips on their websites.  SRQ has taken steps to fight the spread of COVID-19.  Click here for details.   What to Expect
  •  Roads are busier during the busy season in Southwest Florida, so allow extra time to get to the airport.
  • If inclement weather is forecasted at the destination or connecting airports, travelers should check with their air carrier to see if there are any changes to their flight schedules.   Airline links and phone numbers can be found here.  Airlines
