Security

  • The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is responsible for transitioning passengers through the airport's security checkpoints. Learn more about TSA procedures for people with special needs at: http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/airtravel/specialneeds/index.shtm or toll free at (855) 787-2227.
  • If you have any medical devices, such as syringes or special apparatus that might be questioned at the security checkpoint, you should check with your airline in advance of the flight to confirm requirements. Under FAA regulations, diabetics who need to fly with syringes or insulin delivery systems should carry a vial of insulin with a professional, pharmaceutical preprinted label which clearly identifies the medication. Because of the possibility of forgery, prescriptions and letters of medical necessity will not be accepted.
  • Only ticketed passengers are allowed past security checkpoints. However, many airlines are issuing special "companion passes" to non-travelers assisting travelers with disabilities or children traveling alone that allow them to accompany passengers with special needs to the gates. Travelers should check directly with the airlines they are traveling on to see what options are available.

The new indoor pet relief rooms provide service animals and pet-companions with a comfortable and welcoming area to take care of business before or after a flight.  The pet relief rooms are conveniently located post-security in the centers of concourses A, B and C. Also, there is a pre-security, outdoor pet relief area, located just outside door 200 on the west side of the Jeppesen Terminal. All pet relief areas are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.  Read more
