Holiday Travel Tips
Tips to Avoid Holiday Travel Chaos

Ahhh, the holidays are here again! Turkey, Mom's famous sweet potato pie...and chaos at the airport. To ensure your holiday travel experience is as enjoyable as possible, please consider these tips:

  • Allow for extra time at the airport. Domestic travelers should arrive at the airport 75 minutes prior to departure. International travelers should arrive two hours in advance.

  • Bring photo identification with you. All passengers age 18 and older must carry government-issued photo identification at all times and may be asked to show identification at check-in, security checkpoints and during boarding.

  • In cooperation with the Transportation Security Administration, a boarding pass is required to get through security checkpoints. An E-Ticket receipt or itinerary is no longer adequate. To eliminate uncertainty, all passengers should obtain a boarding pass prior to the security checkpoint.

  • Check-in online. Airlines offer check in 24 hours in advance on their websites. All you need is your reservation number.

  • Or, use an E-Service kiosk located at all major airports. U.S. Customers may also check-in curbside with a skycap when checking luggage.
