Tips For Smooth Traveling

Here are a few tips to make your time at the airport a little more of a relaxing and pleasant experience.
The Transportation Security Administration constantly updates its policies to make your travel safe. For a comprehensive list of travel tips, please visit the TSA web site at



Airlines allow one carry-on bag and one personal item per passenger, which may be a briefcase, purse, laptop, or items of similar size.
Usually, airlines allow two checked bags per passenger. They must weigh less than 50 lbs. and the height + width + length of each bag cannot exceed 62" total. Baggage allowances may vary by carrier or class. Check with your carrier before you pack.


Keep valuables, undeveloped film and medicine in your carry-on luggage.


Arrive Early

Sunday mid-day, Monday, Thursday and Friday mornings are the busiest times at Mobile Regional Airport: more traffic, longer lines at ticket counters & security check points. Plan accordingly.
Airlines ask passengers to be at the airport 90 minutes before a domestic flight and two hours before an international flight.

Bring Proper Documents

A government issued photo ID is required.
Boarding Passes maybe printed at home or can be obtained at your airline's ticket counter or kiosk.

There are a few ways to make waiting for an arriving passenger at our airport more enjoyable.

1. Before you leave, check current arrival times.
2. If you decide to wait in your vehicle curbside, stay with it at all times. TSA regulations prohibit unattended vehicles in front of the terminal.
3. Take advantage of 30-minute free long- or short-term parking.
4. The best place to wait for your party is in the upper lobby to the left of security screening.
5. Airlines should arrange for a passenger’s special accommodations, such as a wheelchair. You can confirm a wheelchair request at the Customer Service Center or the airline ticket counter.
6. A restaurant and bar are located in the upper lobby and at the end of the concourse.
7. Only passengers are allowed in the gate area. Airlines occasionally issue passes to non-passengers with reasonable requests, e.g. when picking up a child or an ill relative. It is strictly up to the airline to determine whether your request is reasonable and whether to issue you a pass.
