Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport, on Roger Miliken Field in South Carolina, is conveniently located between its two namesake towns, just off Interstate 85 in the city of Greer. The airport was constructed in 1961 and is continually updating its services to accomodate the rising numbers of clientele. Thirteen departure gates serve 16 airlines (including Continental and Delta) and 1.5 million passengers a year. It is highly recommended that passengers arrive at the airport at least 90 minutes before departure, though during holidays and busy travel times, this should be adjusted. With the recent terrorist threats, check-in times may be further delayed.
As of August 10, 2006, the transport of liquids and gels is restricted from carry-on luggage. The exceptions are formula, breast milk and juice for babies. Other exceptions are medicines such as insulin and pescription liquids. Passengers should be alert to their surroundings and report any suspicious activity to the proper authorities. Though the following does not apply specifically to this Inside Page's topic, it is a helpful resource to enhance readiness in the event of a terrorist threat.
Taxis, limousines, and rental cars are available to get you to Greenville in a minimal amount of time as it is only four miles south of the airport. Rental agencies at the airport include Alamo, Budget, and Hertz.
