About Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport Wait Times

Security wait times at Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP) are not fixed and may fluctuate due to various factors, including severe weather, TSA staffing, and airport construction. GSP TSA wait time predictions are based on flight volume data and TSA staffing models, utilizing advanced data science techniques. These projections are accurate within a five-minute range, as validated by major US airlines, barring any unusual circumstances.

The TSA recommends that all travelers arrive at the airport well in advance of their scheduled flight departures and provides security checkpoint wait time information as a travel planning guide. It is essential to confirm ticket counter wait times and potential changes to flight schedules with your airline as these and other factors influence your decision on how early to arrive at GSP. Every airline has a recommended arrival time and even stricter required arrival times.

All airlines require that you arrive at the check-in counter, the flight's departure gate, and onboard in your assigned seat before the flight's scheduled departure time. The advance arrival time required varies depending on the airline you are flying with. Most airlines' conditions of carriage indicate that if you fail to arrive at the check-in counter, the flight's departure gate, and your assigned seat before the prescribed amount of time before the flight's scheduled departure time, you may be denied boarding and forfeit any refund or other compensation due for the unused ticket, even if you have advance seat assignments and advance boarding passes.
