With an expected increase in travel during the busy 2018 Labor Day weekend, passengers at Redmond Municipal Airport (RDM) might experience longer wait times at the TSA Security Checkpoint and Airport paid parking may be limited.
“It is important for travelers to understand we may reach our parking capacity during Labor Day weekend, and we encourage them to seek alternative arrangements such as taxis, shuttles, ride-sharing or asking friends and family for help,” states Zachary Bass, Airport Director. “We also encourage passengers to arrive to the Airport at least two hours prior to departure time to clear through the TSA screening process. The airline ticket counters close at 40 minutes prior to departure and passengers will not be permitted to board a flight later than 15 minutes prior to departure.”
Mayor George Endicott stated, “We appreciate people choosing our Airport for their travel needs. Be safe, plan ahead and make room for plenty of time during one of our busiest weekends.”
RDM officials have updated the Airport Website to include parking lot web-cams, located at http://www.flyrdm.com/?Airport-Parking-Lot-Cams and scrolling parking availability banners across the top of the Airport website home page, that will update every half hour at www.flyrdm.com.
