Many airlines offer skycap check-in curbside on the departure (upper) level roadway during peak travel periods. However, please remember that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) requires vehicles to be attended at all times on the curbside check-in curbs for security reasons. Failure to do so may result in fines and towing.

In addition, valet parking is now available at Louisville International Airport. Passengers may conveniently drop-off and pick-up their vehicles on the upper-level (departure) roadway on the west end of the terminal. Reservations are not required, but are accepted via the internet at www.airvalet.com/Reservations Travelers with questions are welcome to call Air Valet at (502) 380-3723.
