This small airport is so much easier to travel in and out of when compared to Orlando. Plus, very little traffic to fight to get to/from the airport. There's a convenient cell phone waiting lot, too. Even the airport traffic cops are friendlier! Two thumbs up!👍👍
Please know you will have to do a blind back to get into the doc. I didn't get his name however if you ask they are willing to help you back into the doc.
You will have to swing wide right then cut left to get out and miss the left side of their gate.
They have a great staff and they load very fast. 🤓
Small and stressless facility that supplements the larger, more hectic Orlando airport. Note that this is NOT in Orlando, but in a nearby town called Sanford. There are limited services here. There are few food options. Ample parking and no traffic, however. Minus one star for lack of masks from the majority of the people I observed. All workers had them, but didn't seem interested in enforcing the still standing regulations.
Beautiful airport, great long term parking lot, great shuttle service, extremely clean and organized, will use it again as many times as possible.
Only airport I've been using in Orlando/Sanford. Because of the smaller size it easy in and easy out. Avoid all the mess of Orlando. So it you have a chose, fly Orlando/Sanford Airport. In and out 5 times, best way to go. But remember it is a smaller airport with less amenities. Less food, less shops locations. Oh, by the way the photo is the airport on Thanksgiving Day, no crowd.
In an out plus contracted no Covids
I love Orlando Sanford Airport. It's really easy to check-in and go to the Gates. Just read all the signs to locate your Gates. Make sure you download the Allegiant App, if there's any Gate change, you will see the update on your App. If you have a screenshot you can't see any change.
Like any other airport, you have to be at least 2hrs prior the departure time and if it's HIGH SEASON 3HRS.
REMEMBER, the ticket counter closes 45 MINUTES PRIOR DEPARTURE TIME and GATES closes 15 MINUTES BEFORE your departure time. If your flight is scheduled for 6:00am/pm the ticket counter will close at 5:15am/pm and gates 5:45am/pm 👌🏾
Roads to the terminal area and signage are mostly adequate. I was there late at night to pick up an arriving passenger, therefore I was not inside any building, nor did I use the garage or the pay lots. I sat in the "cell phone lot," with about 7 or 8 other cars, waiting on a delayed incoming flight. SUGGESTION TO MGMT: Please illuminate the cell phone lot entrance with some kind of simple light at night. In the pitch black, two drivers overshot the entrance and actually backed their cars up (yes really!) instead of driving back around. Almost caused a wreck. The cell phone lot itself is difficult to navigate at night, too, since it is completely unlit. The car next to me unwittingly backed into the flimsy little wire/rope barrier. A couple of low wattage or solar powered lights would make a world of difference. While I realize many Florida airports give short shrift to cell phone lots because they are free (meaning no profit to the airport), it would be great if you'd step up and break that mold by making an effort to provide a modicum of safety to this area. You can do better.
Easily the best security experience of my life. 10/29/22 8 AM. All the staff is very professional but pleasant and kind. Got through security in minutes. They have a variety of food options and lots of seating. Considering how intense Orlando airports can be, this was a huge breath of fresh air. Highly recommend!
