Happy Thanksgiving from the Santa Barbara Airport

Arrive Early For Holiday Flights!

SBA offers the following holiday travel tips:

1.    Plan Ahead – arrive two (2) hours prior to your flight departure time to find parking, check-in with your airline, and go through security screening. Live Flight Schedule
2.    Pack Smart – know what items are accepted or prohibited through security and on the aircraft. As a reminder, gifts should not be wrapped as they are subject to search, even if placed in checked baggage. The TSA liquid restrictions remain in place; bottled water and liquids over 3 oz. are prohibited through security screening at the boarding gates. There are restrictions on transporting toner and ink cartridges on passenger airplanes.
3.    Parking – SBA offers long and short term parking options at the Terminal. During our construction period we suggest you take advantage of our Long Term Parking Lot 2 on Frederick Lopez Road, off Hollister Avenue near Fairview Avenue. A FREE Airport Parking Shuttle will take you directly to the Airline Terminal and is available 24 hours a day, 7 days per week.  Short & Long Term Parking is also available next to the Terminal. All parking lots are automated - accepting payment via cash or credit card.  Parking Rates and Locations
