Destin–Fort Walton Beach Airport (VPS)

Get important information about airports in your city.

We have an agreement with Destin–Fort Walton Beach Airport (VPS). This agreement provides our partners and riders with clear instructions on how to make pickups at VPS as seamless as possible. Please read below for more information.


Uber decal required

The Uber decal ("trade dress") must always be displayed in your windshield.

You can order an Uber decal and we will ship it to you in 5-7 business days, at no charge. You can also print, cut, and display a temporary decal until the permanent one arrives.

Uber will not reimburse you if you are ticketed for not displaying your decal on airport property. 


HOW WILL REQUESTS WORK?

You must wait in the Cell Phone Waiting Area to receive ride requests. There are two spots in the Cell Phone Waiting Area for Uber partners. A first-in, first-out (FIFO) queue for airport pickups has been established. When you enter the Cell Phone Waiting Area, you will be placed in a virtual queue. When a rider requests a trip from the airport, the request will go to the vehicle within that area that has been waiting the longest, rather than the vehicle that is closest to the terminal. 

Example: If you’re the second partner to enter the area, you’ll be the second to receive a trip request. If you're the fifth to enter the area, you’ll be the fifth to receive a trip request.  

Pro Tip: You will lose your place in line if you cancel a trip on a rider, go offline, shut down your Uber app, switch vehicles, or leave the airport area. You will not lose your place in line if a rider cancels on you or if you drive around within the FIFO boundaries.


HOW WILL PICKUPS WORK?

A dedicated pickup location has been established. Riders will be directed to the TNC Pickup Area at the beginning of the terminal to make pickups quick and easy. Please note that idling curbside for long periods of time before or after the pickup is not permitted.
