Sky Harbor Airport wiki imageEvery savvy business traveler preps for trips by examining their suitcase to make sure they have the proper attire, and their briefcase to make sure they have the proper presentation materials and are on schedule.

It is in this spirit that Phoenix Sky Harbor International – America’s Friendliest Airport® – offers this quick and easy travel checklist to enable business travelers to use all the great services and amenities offered to make getting through the facility and on to the correct flight a breeze.

First, take advantage of one of the airport’s best-kept secrets, the PHX Sky Train® Station at 44th Street and Washington. This amenity helps travelers avoid airport traffic and curb congestion by offering access to all three airport terminals via the 24-hour PHX Sky Train. The station is ideal for dropping off or picking up passengers.

You may have seen the station highlighted in a recently-launched “Locals Know Where To Go” campaign. It features the Arizona Diamondbacks mascot Baxter showing off the station’s numerous amenities, including:

  • Early Bag Check: A handy service for those flying American Airlines, Southwest, or United to check their bags before boarding the PHX Sky Train®. The service is free, but individual airline bag fees still apply.
  • Boarding Pass Kiosk: Print your boarding pass before arriving at the terminal
  • Cell Phone Waiting Lot (Free): Features approximately 100 parking spaces and restrooms.
