Sarasota Bradenton International Airport, Airport Emergency Plan, Section 11, Pages 11-20 and 11-21

Background Discussion
  • Earlier this year, the Sarasota Manatee Airport Authority approached Manatee County and requested an agreement to provide buses when requested by the Airport Authority to transport passengers to the terminal from aircraft unable to park at an aircraft gate.
  • This procedure will help ensure that aircraft passengers are not stranded on the tarmac for an extended period of time, in accordance with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations.
  • If requested, the County could also assist with transportation of uninjured air passengers.
  • Transit Division staff will prepare for a potential "event", by working with Airport Authority staff on a drill exercise in the near future.
  • The Transit Division will be reimbursed according to a flat hourly rate for all service provided.
