PHOENIX -- In order to reduce traffic congestion near Terminal 4, Sky Harbor is moving the East Cell Phone Lot to a new location. 

Beginning on Wednesday, Nov. 5, the cell phone lot directly east of Terminal 4 will close and a larger cell phone lot will open on the northeast side of the Airport.

Sky Harbor will provide a series of lighted signs guiding drivers to the new location, north of East Economy Parking.

For drivers entering from the west, Sky Harbor will continue to offer its cell phone lot located just west of Terminal 2.

Additionally, those picking up and dropping off Terminal 4 passengers can avoid traffic tie ups by using the PHX Sky Train Station at 44th Street and Washington.

From the East Valley, drivers have two options:

  • Take the 202 west to the 44th Street exit and proceed south
  • Drive north on State Route 143 to the Washington Street exit, drive west on Washington to 44th Street, then turn south.

The 44th Street PHX Sky Train station features a cell phone lot where drivers may wait, free of charge, while their friends or loved ones take the 5-minute ride on the train from Terminal 4.

Terminal 4 serves 80 percent of Sky Harbor's passengers on American, Air Canada, British Airways, Southwest, US Airways, Volaris and WestJet.
