The airport recommends all departing passengers to arrive at least one and a half hours before the scheduled flight for parking, check-in and passing through the security checkpoint. The second level of the terminal houses all of the ticketing counters. Air Canada, United, Frontier, American, and Sun County Airlines are on the left side while Delta, JetBlue, and Allegiant Airlines are on the right side.

TSA Security

Transportation Security Administration (TSA) handles most of the security screening procedures at the airport. They provide travel tips on the official website.

TSA allows Firearms only in checked baggage. They need to be placed in a locked, hard-sided container in an unloaded state and declared to the airline.

Fireworks and other explosive materials are strictly restricted on the plane in both carry-on and check-in baggage. If passengers are traveling with pets, they need to bring a leash for proper screening.

Before entering a standard screening lane, pockets should be checked for keys, cell phones, wallets, currency, and valuable items and placed separately in a carry-on bag. Laptop computes, e-readers, tablets, and game consoles will go through an X-ray screening belt, so they need to be removed from the carry-on bag beforehand.

Travel Tips

TSA recommends taping a card with a name, phone number, and contact information on electronics in case they get lost. They also advise packing items in layers, meaning clothes on one layer, shoes on another, and electronics on a different layer for the faster security screening process. Wearing readily removable shoes are also suggested.

The 3-1-1 liquids rule is applied here as in all other major airports around the world.
