POV: You’re about to head through security — did you forget anything? | Photo via Dane County Regional Airport
Traveling via plane is fun — jet-setting over beautiful blue waters or rolling hills, taking in cloud formations, and landing in a completely different location in a matter of hours is unlike anything else.
The whole navigating the airport part? Less exciting, and sometimes pretty stressful. To help make your time at Dane County Regional Airport as smooth as possible, we’ve created a guide that covers everything from parking and eating to details on the airport’s 18 nonstop flights.
What to know
TSA | Approximate wait times for security lines at Dane County Regional Airport can be found at each TSA checkpoint. Pro tip: Travelers with TSA PreCheck must enter through the south checkpoint area, inside door one.
Map it out | If you’re like us and need to completely visualize a place before you step foot inside, these maps will be your saving grace.
Reminder | By May 3, 2023, you will need a REAL ID to board commercial flights in the US.
Flight status | While we recommend staying updated via your respective airline, you can also check the airport’s dashboard for your flight status in a pinch.
Not everyone has a bestie who will drop everything to pick them up from the airport at 3 a.m. Each lot and garage offers 30 minutes of free parking + $2 hourly parking. Beyond that, the price per day is as listed:
Economy lot | $6/day
Surface lot | $8/day
Ramp | $10/day
Because Dane County Regional Airport only has one terminal, all of these parking options are within walking distance of TSA and your gate.
