From Parking to Children Flying Solo: Here are our Spring Break Travel Tips

Feb 14, 2024 | Travel Tips

Spring Break is just around the corner. If your plans call for air travel, know before you go. We’ve got tips on everything from parking to sending the kids off on their own. 

Parking at the airport will be in high demand. Consider all your transportation options. If you do plan to park onsite, give yourself plenty of time to find a spot and possibly take a shuttle to the terminal. Off-site parking is available in the remote lot across from the Airport Rent-A-Car Center. You can check bags inside the car rental facility using the Curbside Concierge service then ride the shuttle to your terminal. 

Curbside Concierge is also available at Terminal 3 on the departures curb. 

If you’re picking up Spring Break visitors, remember that parking at the curb is prohibited. Wait for your party in the Cell Phone Lot, located off Kitty Hawk Way — just follow the posted signage. The lot is open from 6 a.m.-1 a.m. and is free to use. Once your visitors have arrived, head to Passenger Pickup and use the numbered columns to designate a meeting space. 

If your child is traveling solo, check your airline’s policies and procedures for unaccompanied minors — service is often available for a fee. 

Keep in mind that most airlines require unaccompanied minors to be escorted to their departure gate and met at their arrival gate by an adult guardian with the proper documentation. If you are dropping off a child, you will likely be required to wait with them at the gate until they board their flight. Get to the airport two to three hours early to allow time to fill out paperwork and go through TSA screening at the checkpoint.
