Travel Alert: Delays possible Friday during POTUS visit


Passengers scheduled to fly in and out of Charleston International Airport on Friday will experience brief delays adn or disruptions between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. when President Donald Trump is scheduled to be here.


The President is visiting Boeing, which is adjacent to the airport campus.


Flights will not be able to take off or land 30 minutes before the arrival of Air Force One at 11:30 a.m. and for 30 minutes after its departure around 1:30 p.m.

In addition the cell phone waiting lot and Dreamliner Drive, which is primarily an employee access road, will be closed Friday and won’t open until 2 p.m. or later.


Passengers are encouraged to arrive as usual for their flights – 90 minutes to two hours before scheduled departure to allow for time to park, check in and go through the security screening checkpoint.


Expect some minor departure and arrival delays, however, airlines typically will board as usual so flights can depart as soon as airspace restrictions are lifted.
