Located 7km (4 miles) north-west of downtown Sarasota and 6km (10 miles) south of Bradenton, Sarasota Bradenton International Airport (SRQ) is the gateway to the Gulf Coast of Florida, USA. It handles more than one million passengers per year.
The airport comprises one terminal building for both arrivals and departures, with limited facilities and services. However, the airport has a reputation for smooth check-ins, security and baggage claims; queues are mercifully rare. Staff members are generally friendly and amenities are neat and clean.
Perhaps the only downside is that, as a result of the small number of airlines serving the airport, flights to Sarasota Bradenton International Airport are expensive. Then again, one doesn’t have to endure the stresses associated with busier airports that offer cheaper rates.
