Pre-Flight Preparations

As with all passengers, a smooth travel experience begins before coming to the airport. 

It starts when booking your flight. 
 
Let the airline know what special help you may need; such as assistance unloading at the departure curb, wheelchair assistance to your departure gate, wheelchair assistance at your destination, or checking bags.

Please contact your airline in advance if you are not a passenger, but need to assist a small child or person with disabilities to their departure gate.


Another great resource is TSA Cares. By either going to the TSA website, or calling their hotline, 1-855-787-2227, at least 72 hours before your flight, a TSA Passenger Support Specialist will meet you at the security checkpoint and accompany you through the screening. They will answer any questions and address any concerns you may have with the security process.


Parking Accommodations

Accessible parking spaces are located on all levels near the elevators in both the Hourly Garage and Daily Garage.

In the Daily Surface Lot, accessible parking spaces are located near the Daily Garage.

Economy Parking Lots 1 and 2 have accessible parking spaces near the bus stops.

If you need special assistance, please call the parking office at 904.741.2277.

Discounts: There are no discounts or reduced rates for disabled parking at JAX except for those who qualify as outlined in Florida Statute 316.1964.


Is Someone Meeting You?

If a friend, family member or business associate is meeting you upon your arrival at JAX, they will not be permitted to wait in their car at the arrivals curb. We recommend that the driver use JAX’s Courtesy Waiting Cell Phone Lot, located adjacent to the JAA Administration Building at 14201 Pecan Park Road. There the driver can comfortably wait for your call when you have all your luggage and are at the arrivals curb. The lot is about a two minute drive to the terminal.
