« Airport GuideTSA Travel and Security Tips
Traveling, particularly air travel, is rated as one of the most stressful things we put ourselves through. To make your air travel experience as stress free as possible, we recommend the following:
Pack the bare minimum. don’t try to bring everything for every occasion. The more baggage you bring to the airport, the more likely you will run into complications.
Know What You Are Carrying
Too many times, travelers are delayed at security checkpoints because of disallowed items in their carry-on bags. Many times, the traveler isn’t even aware the items are in their bags. Make sure you go through your bags and that you are not carrying prohibited items. A current list of prohibited items can be found on the TSA Website.
Dress for Success!
In today’s aviation world, security is tops! Security screeners take a hard look at everything that could conceivably be used as a weapon. Unfortunately, that means the more metal you have on your person when you go through the security check points, the harder security will look at you. While there is no dress code to fly, what you wear can make a difference in your traveling experience.
Give Yourself Time
Please arrive at the Jackson Hole Airport in plenty of time to check in and get through screening. Most airlines recommend 2 hours prior to scheduled departure. At the Jackson Hole Airport, the person checking you in is the same person loading your bags and boarding you. If you arrive 20 minutes prior to your scheduled departure there is a good chance no one will be available to check you in because they are loading bags. Just because there is no line doesn’t mean you will be helped.
In addition to the above, contact your airline for recommendations they may have to facilitate your trip. Also, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has put together an informative web page to help get you through airport security. You visit the site at http://www.tsa.gov.
If you have missing or damaged items resulting from Security Screening at the Jackson Hole Airport, please fill out the Claims Form and mail it back to: Jackson Hole Airport Board, P.O. Box 159 Jackson, Wyoming 83001. Please be sure to also include proof of cost of the missing/damaged item(s).

« Airport GuideParking Information
Because the Jackson Hole Airport is located within the boundaries of Grand Teton National Park, we have a very limited amount of space. As a result, sometimes parking spaces are hard to come by. It is recommended that you take advantage of the taxi or shuttle services, or have someone drop you off at the airport two hours prior to your flight time. If you do plan on parking your car at the airport, rows 13 through 22 are available for long term parking. Rows 3 through 12 in the parking lot are designated for rental car return only.
Short term parking
If you’re just here for a couple hours, it’s free. Rows 1 and 2 in the parking lot are reserved for two hour and handicap parking.
Long term parking
If you plan to leave your car parked at the airport overnight, it’s $10.00 per night.
There are three yellow overnight parking pay stations on the west side of the public lot. These stations take credit cards or cash. Just follow directions on the display. Pay, then display your receipt and park. Thanks.
If your flight is cancelled, you can get a refund for your parking fee. Just bring your receipt to the administration office, complete the paperwork and your fees will be refunded.
The curbside area at the terminal is for loading and unloading of bags and passengers only. There is no parking at the terminal. Any vehicle left unattended at the curbside of the terminal will be ticketed and possibly towed. You don’t want that.
