Don't Miss Your Flight:

When flying out of RSW, please remember to arrive at least two hours before domestic flights and three hours before an international departure. â€‹Start your Thanksgiving holiday travel stress free! 

    • We expect a very busy Thanksgiving holiday at Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) and don’t want you to miss your flight. Please arrive at least two hours prior to a domestic flight departure and three hours prior to an international flight.
    • Keep in mind, roads to and from the airport are busier during holidays and there is construction at the airport entrance road due to the I-75 Direct Connect project, so please allow extra time to get to the airport.
    • If there is inclement weather forecasted at your destination or connecting airport, travelers should check with their air carrier to see if there are any changes to flight schedules.
    • Pack smart. Make sure all straps and hanging pieces are inside your bag or firmly secured to the bag with tape. Also, have identification on the outside and inside of your baggage. Visit the Transportation Security Administration’s website at for tips about what you can and cannot bring through the security checkpoint and other procedures.
