Arrive early, depart on time!

EIA recommends that due to increased passenger volumes throughout the holiday season, customers arrive at the airport at least 15 minutes earlier than the usual airline-recommended time. Recommended times vary from one hour in advance of departure time for domestic flights, to three hours ahead of departure for some international flights. Check with your airline to see what they suggest.
 
Dropping off/picking up passengers
Curbside meters are also available; however, availability will be limited during the holiday season and the maximum time allowed is 20 minutes per vehicle. The hourly level of Parkade provides added flexibility and convenience for well-wishers.
