We advise getting to FLL Airport 3 hours before an international flight and 2 if it's domestic. Like Miami, FLL has undergone a much faster recovery from the pandemic than all the other major airports in the US. The airport is busy and staffing levels a low. A problem not unique to the Florida airports but FLL and MIA has struggled to cope with large demand and staff recruitment. Flying on the weekend? Be sure to leave yourself plenty of time to get to the airport.
View above for today's estimated FLL TSA wait times and PreCheck locations and lane openings. TSA PreCheck membership can lead to much shorter wait times at FLL Airport. To find out more about joining or renewing TSA PreCheck membership visit https://www.tsa.gov/precheck. Please aware that CLEAR is also available at Fort Lauderdale International Airport.
We don't have much information to suggest what the security lines are like for immigrations at FLL, however, it is logical to expect longer than average security wait times at FLL for arriving non-nationals based on the lengthy wait times we know affect those departing from FLL. Obviously, those travelers who have already been screened at a connecting US airport can expect to collect their luggage and be on their way sooner than those arriving from overseas.
