Flying in or Out of the Pensacola Airport
The Pensacola International Airport is considered a small airport by most standards. However, it is also one of the busiest airports in the state of Florida. And it is growing exponentially. There are no direct international flights as the name implies. The airport consists of one terminal, but there are plans to add a second one in the near future. There are currently 7 airlines that service the airport (American, Delta, Frontier, Silver, Southwest, Spirit and United). With our experience, it is recommended that you be at the airport at least an hour prior to the departure time.
Shuttle Types - Ride Share versus Direct
There are basically two types of shuttle services, ride share shuttle and direct shuttle. A ride share service will generally pick up multiple passengers going to separate addresses. Obviously, extra time must be considered whether needing a ride to or from the airport, since there would be multiple stops. A direct shuttle will generally provide door-to-door service with no stops, transporting an individual or group. Our service is for the most part a direct shuttle service. Occasionally there may be an extra stop if it is not a diversion that adds more than 5 minutes to the ride. For customers that do not want to travel with other customers, a private shuttle is an option for an additional charge. When a private shuttle is requested, there are absolutely no additional passengers added to your reservation.
