“Gotta Get Away” Travel Tips from MSP International Airport

GET HERE EARLY. It’s busy at MSP Airport. Don’t miss your flight! Get to the airport at least 2.5 hours before your departure time – at BOTH terminals. This will allow time for check-in, security screening, and getting to your gate.

PACK SMART. Everyone has a part to play in keeping airport security lines moving. Learn what you can and cannot take through a security checkpoint by visiting the Transportation Security Administration’s website at www.tsa.gov/travelers/index.shtm.

You’ll save $6 per day over the Terminal 1 general parking rates. Learn all you need to know about parking at MSP, including real-time parking availability.
