Passenger pick-up and drop-off

Passenger drop-off: For everyone's safety, the airport is currently closed to the general public, except for passengers with valid boarding tickets, persons accompanying or assisting such passengers, and airport personnel. Passengers may be dropped off at the terminals on the upper/departures level.

Passenger pick-up: Passengers may be picked up on the outside curbside of the lower/arrivals level, outside the baggage claim hall.

If you are picking up a passenger, use one of the two free Cell Phone Waiting Lots, where motorists can wait for up to 2 hours, until passengers call to say they are ready to be picked up in the central area. The original lot is located at the northwest corner of 96th Street and Vicksburg Avenue, and is available 24 hours a day. The secondary lot is located at the northwest corner of 96th Street and Alverstone Avenue and is open from 6:00 am to 2:00 am. Vehicles must remain attended throughout the entire stay.

Central Terminal Area (CTA)

Eight parking structures located directly across from the passenger terminals. Available for extended stays and overnight trips.

Note: All vehicles entering the central area are subject to random inspection.
