SAN ANTONIO (April 2, 2018) – San Antonio International Airport (SAT) is preparing for the nearly 93,000 Final Four men’s basketball fans to leave town. Tomorrow is expected to be a busy day, so here’s a few tips to  expedite your travel experience:

Checked Baggage Tips:

If you purchased an Official NCAA Final Four Game Program, Transportation Security Administration (TSA) recommends that you travel with this item in your carry-on bag through the security checkpoint

All glossy magazines tend to require a secondary search when left in your checked baggage which could lead to delays when your bag is processed.

Checkpoint Tips:

  • Arrive at least 2 hours prior to your departure.
  • Do not bring bottles of water or soda to the checkpoint.  Limit liquids, gels and aerosols to 3.4 ounces or less and in a one quart zip lock bag. (TSA only allows one bag per person)
  • After you check in with the airline, start placing wallet, cell phone and other items from your pocket into a zippered compartment in your carry-on bag.

Security Enhancements:

  • Passengers may recognize a number of minor changes to routine airport procedures in and around the security checkpoint.
  • These procedures are designed to enhance security, while preserving safe and efficient operations, and may include modifying checkpoint cueing processes.
  • Although checkpoint screening lines may at times appear longer than normal, additional resources have been deployed to optimize screening so customers should not experience abnormal delays.
  • We encourage passengers to follow the instructions and recommendations of airport teammates who will be highly visible throughout the terminals.

Sample TSA Message:

The TSA Security Line will open at 3:00am tomorrow to process travelers through the checkpoint.
