Tulsa Airport Dropoff Info:
When you get to the Tulsa Airport, students and luggage will be dropped off at the ARRIVALS level center entrance (just beyond the “American” sign). Do NOT go to the American Airlines ticket counter on the Departures level. Once you arrive at the airport, all passengers must check in with their BUS CHAPERONE, get your pre-printed Luggage tag, and tag your luggage.

Each flight group will proceed as group through the TSA Security Checkpoint. All passengers must have their ID (students UNDER age 18 may use their BA School ID). As a reminder, no drinks or liquids may be taken through the security checkpoint and all shoes and coats must go through the Xray scanners.

As a reminder, you may only have 1 suitcase (to be checked under the plane) and 1 small carry on bag for this trip. Pack wisely and don’t forget any of your uniform parts and proper rehearsal attire.
