Love Field gives travel reminders this Thanksgiving week
Recent construction projects may change how you are dropped off or picked up.
DALLAS Travelers using Dallas Love Field Airport this Thanksgiving to fly out or pick up passengers should make note of recent changes to ensure a safe and pleasant experience.
Since some holiday travelers may not be familiar with the on-going Love Field Modernization Program and the reconfiguration of the airport, the airport would like to reiterate the following:
Terminal 1 accommodates all passenger activity for Delta and Continental/United Airlines. This includes a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) checkpoint, ticketing, baggage check in, and baggage claim area. Garage B is the most convenient parking for Terminal 1.
Terminal 2 will continue to serve Southwest Airlines passengers. This includes curbside check in, Transportation Security Administration (TSA) checkpoint, ticketing, baggage check in, and baggage claim area. Garages A and B are still convenient parking for Terminal 2.
To travel between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2, customers should follow signs and use the Garage Pedestrian Bridge.
The Cell Phone parking lot has been relocated to just south of its original location. This site holds 45 vehicles and is located on the east side of Cedar Springs Road, north of the long-term parking shuttle and the Hertz Rental Car Facility. Follow directional signs along Cedar Springs.
As you enter the Terminal 2, you will notice some changes. Signage is posted on the lobby wall describing the Love Field Modernization Program and the future design of the airport.
Travelers are encouraged to observe the following holiday travel tips:
Arrive at least 90 minutes before your flight to allow enough time for check-in, baggage check, security, and any unplanned event. Check with your airline for flight departure/arrival status.
Carry-on items are limited to one small bag and one personal item (ie: camera, laptop, briefcase, purse).
To minimize unnecessary congestion, do not park curbside to wait for arriving passengers. Use the Cell Phone parking lot or the parking garage. Garage parking is free if parked for less than 30 minutes.
LUV Helpers, volunteers in Red Vests, can direct you to your terminal and answer questions regarding construction and relocation.
When arriving to the airport, tune in to Love Radio 1580 AM for information on traffic and updates related to Love Field.
For information about security, more travel tips and currently prohibited travel items visit the Transportation Security Administration website.
Travelers are asked to visit the website at www.loveevolution.info for additional information on construction, directional maps, and frequently asked questions.
