Airport Urges Travelers to Plan Ahead for Holiday Weekend

Passengers should allow extra time for parking and check-in through Tuesday

The Santa Barbara Airport anticipates a busier-than-usual travel weekend through Tuesday for Labor Day weekend.

Visitors should be aware of ongoing construction in and around the terminal.

Passengers are encouraged to plan ahead and allow 1.5 hours to find parking, check luggage and go through the security checkpoint.

Due to terminal construction, visitors may experience heavier traffic than normal on the terminal roadways. Please exercise caution when driving in these areas.

Parking Options

» Short Term Lot: adjacent to the terminal; rates are $2 for the first hour or less; $1 for every hour thereafter up to $20 per day maximum.

» Long Term Lot 1: adjacent to the terminal; rates are $2 for the first hour or less; $1 for every hour thereafter up to $9 per day maximum.

» Long Term Lot 2: on Frederic Lopez Road, just off Hollister Avenue near Fairview Avenue; a free shuttle transports visitors between Lot 2 and the terminal every 10 minutes. Parking rates are $2 for the first hour or less; $1 for every hour thereafter up to $9 per day maximum.

Call 805.967.4566 for parking availability. Click here for directions to the airport.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

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.

Thanks for asking!
