Advise to Passengers

To insure passenger safety, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)has imposed strict security procedures at our nation's airports. When traveling you are advised of the following:

  • Arrive at the airport at least two hours before flight time.
  • If someone is dropping you off at the airport, they must stay with the vehicle at all times. They should not leave it unattended, even for a moment.
  • You must have a picture I.D. such as a driver's license, passport, or government-issued identification. Insure that you make your reservation in the exact name that appears on the identification you plan on presenting at the airport. If your name has recently changed and the name on your ticket and your I.D. are different, bring documentation of the change (e.g., a marriage certificate or court order). If traveling with an e-ticket, you must produce a copy of your e-ticket receipt when you check-in.
  • Keep your identification handy, as you may be asked after entering the gate area to produce it for airport or airline personnel.
  • Only ticketed passengers will be allowed to proceed past airport screeners to catch their flights. If you have an e-ticket,  you must go to the check-in counters to receive a boarding pass and go through the airport screening procedures.
  • Keep your luggage and carry on luggage with you at all times Prior to arriving at the airport and while in the terminal. It is advisable to minimize your carry-on items as it may expedite the new security procedures.
  • Do not accept any packages or materials from strangers.
  • Do not carry any sharp instruments (i.e., letter openers, knives, box cutters, scissors, etc,) in carry on luggage. They will be confiscated at airport screening stations.
  • If you see any suspicious activity or see unattended bags, contact airline or airport personnel immediately.
  • Carry medications in your carry-on bags.
  • Hold onto their baggage claim check. Individual airports may elect to provide more security in the baggage claim area.
  • You may encounter long lines at check-in counters and airport screening stations.
