Airport runs for passenger pickup have been improved at the Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport with the opening of a new cellphone lot at 1180 Rental Car Road.
Directly across from the previous temporary location, the lot offers convenient access from Old Bradenton Road or the main airport entrance off University Parkway.
The new cellphone lot has 124 paved parking spaces, five of them handicapped accessible, along with restrooms and vending machines. It is lit with LED lighting and secured with fencing. Two flight information screens are scheduled to be installed within six months to provide current information on flight arrival times.
In the interim, cellphone lot users can find flight information on the airport website or by downloading the AeroCloud app.
The new cellphone lot is a one-minute drive to the terminal building.
“The new cellphone lot will offer the amenities necessary to ease the process of waiting for arriving passengers at SRQ,” said Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport President and CEO Rick Piccolo in a release. “We encourage all airport patrons to use this new lot or park in our short-term parking lot when picking up passengers at the airport.”
