SARASOTA- Picking someone up from Sarasota- Bradenton International Airport?

You can now wait for them at SRQ’s new cell phone lot. With a steady increase in airport traffic and more flights coming in, traffic was backing up at the curb. People can now wait for passengers arriving in the cell phone lot, and make the 2 minute drive over when they get to the curb. Chief Operating Officer Mark Stuckey says it will help people get in and out of the airport smoother.

 “We’ve seen a lot of growth over the last few months,” Stuckey said. “As more of you have seen, our traffic has been growing about 40 to 50% every month, we just started 2 new destinations this past Sunday, and we have 11 new destinations starting this November, so we have a lot of growth, and we’re going to need a place for people to park to free up all the congestion that we have at the curb.”

The lot is free to use, and you can check the SRQ airport webpage for flight updates.
