Advice On When To Arrive At NAS?

Tue Jun 07, 2011 3:38 pm

Hey guys,
On June 11, 2011 I will be coming back from NAS to FLL on B6. The flight leaves at 14:30 and I was wondering when should I arrive at the airport? Is NAS delay-prone? Does it have US pre-clearance? Any information would be greatly appreciated

Yes it does which makes arriving a bit earlier more important.

A bit, traffic can actually get a bit busy with its one runway operations and a decent amount of passenger and GA traffic mixed in. Also in the summer thunderstorms are always possible but usually wont last more then 20-30min.

Flight departs at 14:30 I would say 2 hours should be safe. Lines can get a bit long and sometimes pre-clearance can take a lot of time. But it all depends. There is not much to do in NAS just one big waiting area with a few shops, views are not great but there is some very interesting traffic there. 2 hours is what I would do especially if you are checking in bags.
