Travel Tips

General Tips

  • Arrive at the Brandon Municipal Airport a minimum of 90 minutes prior to departure to ensure adequate time to check-in and be processed through the single security checkpoint with your checked and carry-on luggage. WestJet adheres to a strict check-in cut off time of 45 minutes prior to departure.
  • Do not leave your vehicle unattended in front of the terminal doors as this is the designated space for picking up and dropping off passengers. Unattended vehicles will be ticketed and possibly towed. Take advantage of the FREE short term and long term parking lot located in a well-lit area.
  • Brandon Municipal Airport is a smoke-free facility with designated smoking areas outside the terminal.
