You will need a boarding pass to get through security. Our flights depart out of Gates A-12 and A-14.

Boarding cut-off time
Each customer must be onboard the aircraft 15 minutes prior to departure. Standby customers may be cleared at 10 minutes to departure. Any customer not onboard, even if they have checked in and received a boarding pass, may be denied boarding and will not be entitled to denied boarding compensation.
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. Customers with no checked baggage may check in within 24 hours from their scheduled departure time. Kiosk check-in is not available 30 minutes or less before departure.
You can retrieve your information and check in at a kiosk using one of the following methods:
In order to validate your boarding pass, you'll need to present it along with your photo ID at the gate.
Curbside check-in and skycap
JetBlue will offer curbside check-in at Tampa International Airport.
Once you've checked in at curbside, your bags will be taken care of and you can head straight to security.
Please note there is a $2 fee per bag for curbside check in.
Only credit/debit cards are accepted (no cash).
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.
When dropping off the unaccompanied minor, the parent/guardian may NOT leave the airport until the following criteria are met:
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.
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, the pick up person should 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.
