Both American Airlines and Delta Air Lines serve our airport. Which airline you use will depend on where you are traveling and your schedule. Some of the best airfares are available on their websites. Before your flight, visit your airline’s website and sign up for text alerts to check on your flight’s status and print out your boarding passes. Printing your boarding passes means that, if you aren’t checking luggage, you can bypass the ticket counter and go straight to security upon arrival at the airport.
Arriving early means you will have plenty of time to check in and pass through security at a leisurely pace, and even grab a bite to eat at the restaurant before boarding your flight. This is especially important during the holidays, when more people are traveling. Typically, we recommend arriving one hour in advance of a domestic flight and an hour and a half ahead of an international flight.
Delta Air Lines and American Airlines allow passengers to carry on one piece of carry-on sized luggage and a personal item for free. Check with your airline for specific details. Packing lightly avoids baggage fees and the inconvenience of toting heavy luggage through the airport.
The following tips will help you get through security faster:
Plan ahead for flight delays that may be caused by weather, technical difficulties or crowded flights. Bring along snacks and games for the kids, chargers for phones or other devices, and keep phone numbers for family, friends and airlines handy should you need to adjust travel plans. Most airlines have websites designed to work with mobile devices that contain useful information, should you be delayed.
