Cell Phone Lot

If you are picking someone up at Southwest Florida International Airport, you can use our convenient cell phone lot. Drivers can wait - at no charge - until arriving passengers contact them via cell phone upon arriving at the terminal curb. Drivers using the cell phone lot must remain in their vehicles.




To reach the cell phone lot, take Terminal Access Road, the airport's main entrance road, and follow the directional signs. The drive from the cell phone lot to the terminal curb takes only a few minutes, so arriving passengers are encouraged to make the call only after they have retrieved baggage and are standing at the terminal curb. Passengers can tell their party exactly where they are standing. All terminal doors are marked with numbers 1-6. Pay telephones are located in the baggage claim area for those arriving who do not have cell phones.


Travelers are reminded that security requirements only allow for active loading and unloading at the terminal curb. Parking at the curb is prohibited and will result in ticketing or towing.


Please note, there are no restroom facilities available in the cell phone lot, as it is not intended to be used for extensive periods of time. Restrooms are available in the main terminal, accessible via the Parking Garage. The first 20 minutes in the Parking Garage are free of charge for your convenience.
