PALM SPRINGS INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT w/ Daniel Meier. Re: Deputy Director of Aviation, Marketing & Air Service @ Palm Springs International Airport.
– QUESTION from a “Joey Pal”.
1. Please have Daniel explain what hours the Airport is open? (It’s open 24/7. The airport is NEVER locked. Checkpoints open @ 4 AM (1st flight in the AM is 6 or 6:30 AM – Airline ticket counters open about 2 hours before that first departure) Checkpoints close @ 5:45 PM or once the last departing flight has left. Last arrival is 10:30 or 11 PM so rental cars stay open a while after that.)
– REPORT that we have an “airport stray cat” that is well taken care of.
– REPORT that AS OF TODAY you can do your TSA pre-check AT THE AIRPORT. Start on-line then do your interview @ the airport. When you get to the airport go to the CLEAR Stand and tell them you are there for your TSA interview. SO on the new check-in procedure, i.e. TSA. (www.tsa.gov) US Global Entry; Clear (www.clearme.com).
– DISCUSSION of PSP being a “spoke”, not a “hub”. A hub is where passengers connect to other flights.
– DISCUSSION of “Stay and Play” new visitor pass program.
– REPORT that there is a new website that will tell you what you can and cannot take and the immediate statis of your flight, the occupancy of the parking lots, etc..www.flypsp.com. Go to www.tsa.gov and go to the section “what can I bring”.
