**Parking advisory | Renovations at Long Beach Airport **

Please be advised, December 29, 2016 will be the last day to park in Lot A, the parking structure located nearest to the historic terminal at Long Beach Airport (LGB), in preparation for a renovation project beginning January 2017 and scheduled for completion Fall 2017.

Airport signage will be posted to direct customers around the construction.
Travel Tips:

  • Go green and take the bus. Long Beach Transit has a convenient stop at the airport on Barbara London Drive.

  • If you're staying at a local hotel, see if they have a shuttle to the airport.

Check in & gate information

Ticket counter hours and location

Our ticket counter is located in the Main Terminal and is open from 5:00 a.m. until 10:00 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 cutoff 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 5-11.

Identification requirements

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:

  • Confirmation code
  • Emailed itinerary with the bar code
  • Credit card with your name on it
  • TrueBlue number or email address and password if you're a TrueBlue member

In order to validate your boarding pass, you'll need to present it along with your photo ID at the gate.

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.
