Passenger Drop-Off

Know Before You Go

Before leaving for the airport to pick up your party, make sure you know the following information:

Park and say goodbye in the Terminal

Take some extra time to say goodbye and see your family member or friend off inside the Airport. You may park in a terminal parking structure close to the terminal of the respective airline. The rate is an economical $2 per hour, and dedicated two-hour parking spaces are available on the lower level of Parking Structures A1, B2 and C near the terminal entrance. You may then accompany your party to the ticket counters and security checkpoints on the Departure (upper) Level and say goodbye. Only ticketed passengers are allowed beyond the security checkpoints.  (View terminal map | parking map)

Briefly stop at the white curb

Note: Curbside space is very limited due to construction. View construction alert for more information.

Vehicles may briefly stop at the white curb for dropping off passengers on the Departure (upper) Level roadway — be careful not to stop at a red curb or other restricted areas as citations will be issued. Allowing enough time and parking your car will help make your experience less stressful. Curbside parking is not allowed.

Do not leave your vehicle unattended at the curbside!

Call ahead for parking status

For more information on parking options or to get a parking status, call (949) 252-5200 - dial “0” after the initial recording to speak to a Customer Relations Assistant.
