Departing Jackson Hole

Please arrive at the Jackson Hole Airport in plenty of time to check in and get through screening. Most
airlines recommend 2 hours prior to scheduled departure. At the Jackson Hole Airport, the person checking
you in is the same person loading your bags and boarding you. If you arrive 20 minutes prior to your
scheduled departure there is a good chance no one will be available to check you in because they are loading
bags. Just because there is no line doesn't mean you will be helped.
