Ticket counter hours and location

Our ticket counter is located on the Upper Level, at the end of Concourse D of Fort Myers' Midfield Terminal Complex. It's located next to the American Airlines counter and is open from 4:15 a.m. - 8:00 p.m.

We recommend you arrive at the airport at least 90 minutes prior to departure. Avoid delays by checking for traffic alerts, and allow enough time to go through TSA screening, particularly during holidays and peak travel days. Please note, JetBlue has cut-off times for baggage check in, and also for check in at the departure gate; JetBlue will not be responsible for expenses incurred due to late check in.

You'll need a boarding pass to get through security. Our flights depart out of Gates D6 and D8.

Kiosk check-in

If you have a confirmed reservation, feel free to use a kiosk to check in. You may check in using the kiosk no more than six (6) hours prior to departure if you are checking baggage.

Curbside Check-in and Skycap

Check in & pick up information for unaccompanied minors

Photo identification is required for both parties who drop off and pick up an unaccompanied minor. Unaccompanied minors will not be accepted without the guardian's photo ID.

When a gate pass is issued, it is the TSA's decision as to whether a young child, in addition to the unaccompanied minor, may pass through security with the adult.

Drop-off information

When dropping off the unaccompanied minor, the parent/guardian may NOT leave the airport until the following criteria are met:

  • The parent/guardian has a signed copy of the UMNR form
  • The UMNR is onboard the aircraft 
  • The parent/guardian's name, address and cell phone number are all documented on the minor's reservation

In the event of a gate return, a JetBlue crewmember will contact the parent/guardian so that he/she can immediately return to the airport to meet their minor. Please note, the parent/guardian must request a gate pass at the airport ticket counter to pick up their minor at the departure gate.

Pick-up information

When picking up an unaccompanied minor, one person may receive a gate pass to proceed into the arrivals area to meet the minor. Please arrive at the airport no later than 30 minutes before the scheduled arrival.

In cases where a flight arrives after the ticket counter is closed, proceed directly to baggage claim to meet the minor.

The child will only be released to the person indicated on the unaccompanied minor form or on the reservation and that person must present their government-issued photo ID.
