The entire airport is free of any architectural barriers to the handicapped. Handicap accessible routes throughout the facility can be found on our facility map.
Adult Changing Tables
Adult changing tables are available in the family/companion care restrooms located pre-security on Level 2 to the right of the screening checkpoint and post-security near Shake Shack.
Hidden Disabilities Program
The Hidden Disabilities program provides an extra layer for those coping with issues such as autism, anxiety disorders, dementia, Crohn’s disease, low vision, hearing loss, epilepsy, fibromyalgia, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, Asperger Syndrome, PTSD, learning disabilities or mobility issues.
This program allows our staff to identify those in need of an extra level of customer service by use of a sunflower lanyard or bracelet. While they do provide a discreet signal to employees, wearing a lanyard does not guarantee fast tracking through security or any preferential TSA treatment. Passengers are encouraged to arrange any special assistance needed with their Airline or TSA Cares.
The lanyards are available free of charge at the Customer Service Desk, located by Baggage Claim, on the 1st floor. Click here for more information.
These rooms are available for nursing mothers to utilize when traveling to and from the Airport. Each room has comfortable seating, an end table, a changing table, and appropriately placed electrical outlets. One Mother’s Room is provided on each concourse post-security. Please visit the facility map for specific locations.
Pet Relief Areas
A Pet Relief Area is located post-security near Shake Shack. There is an outside service animal/pet relief area located on Level 1 between the short term parking garage and the terminal. Exit door 5 on Level 1 and go to the right.
TSA Cares is a helpline that provides travelers with disabilities, medical conditions and other special circumstances additional assistance during the security screening process.
Contact TSA 72 hours prior to traveling with questions about screening policies, procedures and what to expect at the security checkpoint.
