Security Wait Times
TSA / Security Info / CLEAR / Real ID
The security checkpoint is normally open daily from 3:30am to 9:20pm. We recommend allowing up to at least 30 minutes for screening.
Open/Close times may change without notice. Airlines coordinate with TSA for departure times outside of these hours. We recommend that you arrive at the airport at least two (2) hours prior to your scheduled departure.
Flying is Easier with a REAL ID
Congress has enacted new security rules for state-issued driver’s licenses and other forms of IDs as part of the REAL ID Act of 2005. Beginning on May 7, 2025, every air traveler 18 years of age and older will need a REAL ID-compliant driver’s license or another acceptable form of ID to fly within the United States. Information regarding the rollout of Real ID for each state can be found here.
