The TSA operates the airport's security checkpoints. Normally, access beyond the concourse checkpoint is limited to ticketed passengers only. Relatives or friends providing assistance to a person with a disability, but not flying with them, may obtain a pass from their respective airline that will allow them passage through security. TSA security personnel will work with disabled passengers to provide the most convenient and secure way of handling individual security screening. Passengers with disabilities, including those with pacemakers, should advise TSA security personnel of any special needs prior to screening.


Passengers with disabilities should advise their airline at the time of booking of any special needs or assistance required. This allows the airlines to pre-arrange for personnel or equipment to assist at the airport and onboard the aircraft.

All passengers, including those with disabilities, may be dropped off or picked up curbside at the terminal on both the upper and lower levels. No waiting or parking is allowed at curbside and vehicles should never be left unattended. Unattended vehicles will be cited and towed.


All levels of the Colorado Springs Airport are accessible by way of elevators. These elevators are located in the center of the airport, which are conveniently located near the security checkpoint on the upper level and baggage claim on the lower level. Additional elevators are located on the east and west ends of the terminal building.

Please advise TSA security personnel of any specific medical issues that could be an issue during the screening process. Examples would include a pacemaker or other implanted medical devices, diabetes supplies and injection equipment or any other special medical supplies or devices. Additional information about medical issues and security is available on the TSA Web Site, travelers with special needs pages. It is also important to advise your airline of any special medical concerns at the time of booking. For example, anyone needing supplemental oxygen during travel must order it ahead of time and purchase the oxygen from the airline. Be sure to ask your carrier, since not all airlines provide oxygen service.


All parking lots at the Colorado Springs Airport have handicapped spaces available. In addition, many airport shuttle buses are lift equipped.

Wheelchairs, and personnel to assist with them, are available at the airport.

This will allow the airline to be ready to meet your needs when you arrive at the Colorado Springs Airport for departure or when you deplane upon arrival into Colorado Springs. When arriving at the Colorado Springs Airport to depart on a flight, let a skycap or ticket agent know of your need for a wheelchair.
