Santa Barbara Airport Gearing Up for Busy Fourth of July Holiday

Passengers are urged to arrive early and take advantage of a free shuttle

The Santa Barbara Airport anticipates a busier-than-usual travel period this Fourth of July holiday.

To make it an easy and enjoyable experience, passengers are encouraged to plan ahead and give themselves 90 minutes to find parking, check their luggage and go through security to ensure that easy walk to the gate. As a reminder, fireworks are prohibited and should be left at home.

For easy access to the airline terminal, take advantage of Long Term Parking Lot 2 and the free shuttle that takes you directly to the terminal (located on Frederick Lopez Road near the corner of Hollister and Fairview avenues). Or park in Long Term Parking Lot 1 located adjacent to the terminal.

At the Santa Barbara Airport, it’s all about easy — five major airlines, six major hubs, and easy access to anywhere in the world. Need to be connected? Use the complimentary WiFi.

This summer enjoy SBA’s new seasonal service to Portland on Alaska Airlines through Aug. 25.

The cost for Long Term Parking Lot 1 is $12 a day, and Long Term Parking Lot 2 is $9 a day.

The Santa Barbara Airport is a self-supporting enterprise owned and operated by the City of Santa Barbara and serves nearly 725,000 passengers annually.

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
