As at any airport, passengers must arrive at least one (1) hour prior to departure.

We want you to think of Columbia Regional as your hometown airport with friendly staff, shorter TSA lines, and personal customer service.

However, you must arrive at least one (1) hour prior to your flight departure time for domestic destinations and at least one and one-half (1.5) hours prior to your departure time for international destinations; just as you would at any other airport, large or small.

Our goal is for you to have an outstanding customer experience at COU. So please, arrive at least one hour before your flight to get all checked in and screened through TSA.  Then relax with us for few minutes and take advantage of the free Wi-Fi in the terminal or a light pre-flight snack or beverage before your flight.

Thanks for flying from COU where we get you there faster and home sooner.
