Picking Up or Dropping Off

We’re all in a hurry these days. That’s why at SDF, we’ve made drop-offs and pickups as quick and convenient as possible.

Curbside Pickup

If you’re just swinging by for a quick pickup, enjoy any of our designated curbside areas.

Curbside passenger drop-offs and pick-ups are available at SDF, but vehicles must be occupied at all times. If you are waiting on a call from the person you are picking up from the Louisville airport, you can wait in the free, short-term cell phone waiting area.

Meet & Greet
