3/14/2014
Valerie Wise, Air Service & Business Development Manager | 316-946-4700
With a busy spring break travel season approaching, Wichita Mid-Continent Airport officials are advising passengers to arrive at least an hour and a half to two hours before departure time, particularly if the flight is between 6 and 7 a.m.  The busiest days are expected to be Friday, March 14 through Monday, March 17, as well as next weekend when travelers return. Following are travel tips:

Arrive early; the checkpoint opens at 4 a.m.;

  • Check your flight online up to 24 hours before departure;
  • Use the Park & Ride lot; cost is just $6/day;
  • To pick up passengers, use the cell phone lot just south of the Park & Ride lot;
  • If you are a TSA Pre-Check passenger, proceed to the Pre-Check lane at Security Checkpoint.  
  • Do not remove shoes at the security checkpoint if you are 75 or older or 12 years and younger;   
  • Present your government-issued photo identification ready at Security Checkpoint;
  • Be ready to remove coats, take off shoes, hand over laptops and 3-1-1 bags (unless you are in pre-check)
  • Board at the gate at least 30 minutes before departure;  
  • Be aware that airline ticket counters close 30 minutes before departure; 
  • Visit your airlines’ websites for rules regarding carry-on luggage;
  • Report suspicious activity to airport or airline officials or local law enforcement;
  • Visit www.flywichita.com for helpful airport information and for updated flight status.
