Cheap Flights to Sarasota - Bradenton
International Airport

Getting cheap flights to Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport may make more sense for you than Tampa International Airport from a convenience standpoint, even though flights into Tampa may be less pricey, dollar-wise.

Remember, if you have to drive from Tampa, "time is money." So it may be worth a few dollars more to you to fly into the Sarasota Bradenton Airport.

Plus, unless someone is picking you up in Tampa, gratis, then you'll have to reserve a rental vehicle, pay for it and drive it from Tampa.

Once you land in Sarasota, you simply get off the plane, walk through the exit hall ramp, take the escalator downstairs, pick up your luggage and walk out the door into the parking lot to a waiting ride. Or pick up your rental car if you’ve reserved one.

It’s pretty easy and convenient. Flights to Sarasota are easier, quicker and more convenient, but prices are usually higher and availability is tighter than air travel to Tampa. So this is where it pays to plan ahead if you're really looking for cheap flights to Sarasota.

Also, you may have to plan further ahead during ”off season” as some of the airlines only fly into Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport during high season and cut back on their flights during off-season.

The mantra remains: book early rather than late if you want to get those cheap Florida flights.

One of the airlines that serves SRQ is Jet Blue, which offers service to New York’s JFK airport.
