“It is great to see the strong demand to use the Sarasota Bradenton International Airport continue each month. With the busy Thanksgiving holiday arriving next week, our airlines have scheduled additional flights to accommodate the increase in demand.    

To ensure a stress-free travel experience, we kindly request passengers arrive at least two hours prior to their flight’s scheduled departure time to allow for any unexpected delays. Additionally, we recommend checking the TSA website for the most up-to-date guidelines on packing luggage and processing through the screening checkpoint.

For those individuals picking up passengers at the airport, we ask that you utilize our newly constructed cell phone lot waiting area. This area is paved and equipped with restrooms and vending machines to ensure that customers have access to necessary amenities while waiting for passengers to inform them they are ready to be picked up at arrivals,” stated Rick Piccolo, President, CEO of the Sarasota Bradenton International Airport.
