  Check-in & Gate Information - RSW

ticket counter hours and location

Our ticket counter is located on the Upper Level, at the end of Concourse D of Fort Myers' Midfield Terminal Complex. It is located next to the United Express and US Airways counters and is open from 4:30 a.m. - 7:45 p.m.

We recommend you arrive at the airport at least 90 minutes prior to departure. Avoid delays by checking for traffic alerts, and allow enough time to go through TSA screening, particularly during holidays and peak travel days. Please note, JetBlue has cutoff times for baggage check in, and also for check in at the departure gate; JetBlue will not be responsible for expenses incurred due to late check in.

You will need a boarding pass to get through security. Our flights depart out of Gates D6 and D8.

check-in requirements for domestic travel

Government issued identification is required for all customers 18 years of age and over. Identification is not required for any person under the age of 18.

The name on the ID must match the name in the reservation.

Forms of valid identification for domestic flights are described below:

  • U.S. passport
  • State-issued driver's license
  • U.S. passport card
  • DHS "Trusted Traveler" cards (NEXUS, SENTRI, FAST)
  • U.S. Military ID

    Customers traveling with an infant as a lap child may be asked for proof of age, such as a passport, birth certificate (copies are acceptable for domestic travel) or an immunization record when the infant's age is questionable. Infants between three and 14 days old must also have, in the form of a letter, their doctor's approval to travel.

    Unaccompanied minors must check in at the ticket counter. An unaccompanied minor does not need photo ID. However, the adult dropping them off and picking them up will need photo ID. This adult must be named in the reservation.

    Your confirmation number or itinerary may be helpful, but are not necessary to check in.

    All reservations not paid for at least 30 minutes prior to departure are subject to cancellation.

    check-in cut-off time

    Checked baggage may not be accepted less than 30 minutes prior to the flight departure time. We will not be liable for any charges incurred for baggage that was checked late, nor will we be liable for delivery or compensation for late checked baggage.

    If you are not checking bags, you may check in up to 20 minutes prior to scheduled departure and must be in the gate area at least 15 minutes prior to scheduled departure.

    boarding cut-off time

    Each customer must be onboard the aircraft 15 minutes prior to departure.

    Standby customers may be cleared at 10 minutes to departure.

    Any customer not onboard, even if they have checked in and received a boarding pass, may be denied boarding and will not be entitled to denied boarding compensation.

    kiosk check in

    If you have a confirmed reservation, feel free to use a kiosk machine to check in. You may check in using the kiosk no more than six hours prior to departure if you are checking baggage. Customers with no checked baggage may check in within 24 hours from their scheduled departure time. Kiosk check in is not available 30 minutes or less before departure.

    You can retrieve your information and check in at a kiosk using one of the following methods:

    • Reservation number
    • Emailed itinerary with the bar code
    • Credit card with your name on it
    • TrueBlue number or email address and password if you're a TrueBlue member

    In order to validate your boarding pass, you'll need to present it along with your photo ID at the gate.

    Curbside Check In and Skycap

    JetBlue offers Curbside Check-in at Ft. Myers airport.

    Once you've checked in at curbside, your bags will be taken care of and you can head straight to security.

    Please note there is a $2 fee per bag for curbside check in.

    Only credit/debit cards are accepted (no cash).

      Check in & Pick Up Info for Unaccompanied Minors - RSW

    Photo identification is required for both parties who drop off and pick up an unaccompanied minor. Unaccompanied minors will not be accepted without the guardian's photo ID.

    When a gate pass is issued, it is the TSA's decision as to whether a young child, in addition to the unaccompanied minor, may pass through security with the adult.

    drop off information

    When dropping off the unaccompanied minor, the parent/guardian may NOT leave the airport until the following criteria are met:

    • the parent/guardian has a signed copy of the UMNR form
    • the UMNR is onboard the aircraft 
    • the parent/guardian's name, address and cell phone number are all documented on the minor's reservation.

    In the event of a gate return, a JetBlue Crewmember will contact the parent/guardian so that he/she can immediately return to the airport to meet their minor. Please note, the parent/guardian must request a gate pass at the airport ticket counter to pick up their minor at the departure gate.

    pick up information

    When picking up an unaccompanied minor, one person may receive a gate pass to proceed into the arrivals area to meet the minor. Please arrive at the airport no later than 30 minutes before the scheduled arrival.

    In cases where a flight arrives after the ticket counter is closed, the pick up person should proceed directly to baggage claim to meet the minor.

    The child will only be released to the person indicated on the unaccompanied minor form or on the reservation and that person must present their government issued photo ID.
