Passengers flying out of John Glenn International in Columbus between 10:45 a.m. and 1:30 p.m on Saturday need to arrive at least two hours before their flight.
Airport access will be limited during that time for safety reasons as a helicopter replaces two 6,000-pound air conditioning units on the roof of the terminal.
Areas of the airport that will be impacted are:
- International Gateway
- Parking garage
- Rental car return
- Ticket lobby
- Curbside arrivals and departures
Motorists dropping off or picking up passengers during a temporary closure of International Gateway will be redirected to a staging area in the Cell Phone Waiting Lot, where shuttles will be available to transport passengers to/from the terminal, airport officials said.
Airport staff will provide directions and assistance to passengers and others.
The work at the airport depends on the weather, officials said.
