RDM warns of longer lines, limited parking as holiday travel season begins

Redmond Airport officials are warning of longer lines and limited parking during the upcoming holiday travel season.

The airport released an advisory on Wednesday, offering reminders about parking, baggage restrictions and other information:

Passengers are encouraged to arrive at the airport two hours prior to their scheduled departure time.

TSA screening begins at 3:45 a.m. daily.

To avoid unnecessary delays, check all baggage for weapons, and other hazardous items and be ready to remove all snacks and electronic objects larger than a cell phone prior to travel.  All items must comply with TSA’s 3-1-1 liquids rule. Solid food items are acceptable.  Containers of jams, jellies and similar food items are not allowed in carry-on baggage.  If traveling with gifts, please leave them unwrapped.  Additional TSA travel tips and packing information can be found at https://www.tsa.gov/.

Parking availability in the main lot may be limited during the holidays.  Travelers are encouraged to check parking availability on the Airport website at http://www.flyrdm.com/?Airport-Parking-Lot-Camswhich features live parking lot web-cams, parking availability alerts and other important travel information.

Parking rates at all RDM parking lots are based on time of entry (not entry date) and run on a 24-hour period.

• $1.00 for the first 30 minutes and $2.00 for 31-60 minutes

• $2.00 for each additional hour (and any part thereof)

• $15.00 per day Maximum (over a 24-hour period)

Payments can be made with cash, debit card or credit card – checks are not accepted. To provide an additional parking option, RDM has recently opened a new credit card-only parking lot, located on the southwest side of the Airport near the main entrance (first lot entrance on the righthand side). Additional parking information can be found online at http://www.flyrdm.com/?Airport-Parking–Map

The Cell Phone Waiting area is located across the street from the Airport along SW Salmon Avenue. Be prepared to leave or arrive in winter weather that may present slippery or hazardous conditions. Allow extra time for driving and walking safely. Additional Airport, Airline, and flight information can be found online at www.flyrdm.com
