To accommodate the volume, the Aviation Authority will open all parking facilities – including the West Park Place remote lot and add extra shuttles that will run every 10 to 15 minutes. Drivers are reminded to leave early enough to allow time to look for available spaces and if they pull into a full facility, they should follow instructions on how to proceed.

Passengers are also asked to follow TSA Top Travel Tips.
