Air Travel and Security
Travel within the United States will require government-issued identification at all times as well as a paper or e-ticket itinerary with a receipt. Because a boarding pass can only be issued at the airport, passengers must check in at the ticket counter or gate in order to board their flight.
Today's airport security measures can result in delays and long lines and it's recommended that passengers arrive at least 90 minutes prior to departure for domestic flights and two hours for international flights. Upon arrival at the airport all passengers will be required to show their government-issued ID (driver's license or passport) in order to check in. Please note the airline carriers have imposed new luggage weight restrictions and we recommend checking with the airline to confirm their allowable luggage weight limits to avoid paying excess baggage fees.
It is recommended that non-U.S. residents traveling from abroad contact their local consulate for further instructions prior to departure.
