What time do I need to arrive at the airport for my flight?

Please be prepared and give yourself plenty of time for your upcoming trip. We recommend arriving at least two hours prior to your scheduled departure for domestic flights and at least three hours prior to a departure for an international flight.

 Also, the TSA screening requirements have recently changed and require that customers checking bags at the ticket counter or Bag Drop will need to do so at least 45 minutes before scheduled  departure ( 60 minutes for international and U.S.V.I. flights). 

Spirit may cancel a reservation or seat assignment for any customer without a boarding pass at least 45 minutes prior to a scheduled departure (60 minutes for international and U.S.V.I. flights). Please be available for boarding at the gate at least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled domestic departure and 30 minutes prior to your international departure or you may lose your reservation. In the event of a delay, we recommend that customers remain in the gate area for updates and possible early departures.
