Pick Up/Drop Off and Park & Wait
Separate pick up and drop off areas are available for arriving and departing passengers at SLC. The elevated roadway (indicated in blue on the map below) is for passenger drop off for the third level of the terminal. To access this road, stay right on Terminal Drive when approaching the terminal.
The far left lane on the ground level (indicated in purple on the map below) is for pick up. There is a 13-foot height restriction to drive in front of the terminal to pick up passengers.
Anyone picking up arriving passengers inside of the airport are encouraged to wait in The Greeting Room, which is located on the second level of the Terminal adjacent to the baggage claim area (click here to see its location on the Airport Map). The Greeting Room features comfortable seating, a rendition of the World Map as well as a history and art exhibit. Passengers arriving on domestic flights exit the secure area of the airport and walk by The Greeting Room on their way to the baggage claim area.
Passengers arriving on international flights will exit on the ground level of the Terminal. A waiting area with seating is located at the bottom of the escalators (click here to see its location on the Airport Map).
Park and Wait Lot
The airport’s free Park and Wait Lot allows drivers to wait for arriving passengers until they are ready to be picked up. The lot is located west of Terminal Drive, just southeast of the Terminal.
Park and Wait offers an alternative to circling the terminal or parking in the hourly/daily parking lot, and provides large electronic flight information signs displaying flight arrival information. Once the flight has arrived and time is allowed for passengers to receive luggage, the sign indicates “ready for pick up.” However, the airport encourages drivers to wait for pick-up until passengers are at the curb, confirming with their arriving passenger via cell phone.
The airport has an idle-free policy and we encourage drivers to abide by this policy in the Park and Wait Lot.
