San Antonio (March 8, 2021) – Spring Break begins this week for many local schools, so that typically means a busier travel season. San Antonio International Airport does not expect as many travelers as in years past since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and we continue to reinforce its health and safety measures.
 
“For individuals choosing to travel, we strongly encourage them to practice the health and safety protocols implemented at SAT by wearing the required facial covering, washing your hands, social distancing, using hand sanitizer and limiting contact with other passengers.”, said Jesus H. Saenz, Jr., Director of Airports, San Antonio Airport System.
 
The airport has installed the following to keep travelers safe: 

  • Acrylic barriers at counters and checkpoints
  • Hand sanitization stations
  • Personal protection equipment vending machines
  • Free masks for your convenience
  • Touchless technologyUV light germ-zapping robot

Here are a few tips to make your travel experience stress free:

  • Wear a face mask. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Emergency Order mandated face masks be worn on all public conveyances and at stations, ports, or similar transportation hubs.
  • Check updated flight status online – Passengers can check their flight status before they leave home at www.flysanantonio.com
  • Leave prohibited items at home. To reduce the likelihood of physical contact with TSA officers at the checkpoint, check for prohibited items by using the “What Can I Bring” page on www.TSA.gov
  • Arrive at least 2 hours before your flight which provides time for parking and the check-in process, especially for flights departing early morning. Passengers can check the real time availability of parking before leaving home by visiting www.flysanantonio.com
  • Prepare for security checkpoint-Have a valid ID card readily available. Follow the liquids rule of 3.4 ounces or less, with the exception of hand sanitizer, which has a temporary 12-ounces limit in carry-on baggage.
  • Parking-Take advantage of the $10.00 daily rate in long term parking and $25 daily rate in the short-term parking lot.
  • Pick Ups-Picking up someone for Spring Break? The free Cell Phone Lot is minutes away from both terminals and has free WIFI available while you wait for your arrival to call for a pick up.
