Travel Tips

Check Flight Status

Call your airline’s toll-free number to re-confirm your flight schedule.

Allow Extra Time

With the increase in travelers during the holidays, it is advisable to arrive at the airport at least two hours prior to your flight.

Tag Every Bag

Make sure that all checked and carry-on bags are tagged with identification information.  Also include tags inside each bag in the event the outside tag falls off.  You can save time by filling out luggage tags before arriving at the airport.

Leave Gifts Unwrapped

Gifts may need to be opened for security inspection.

Limit Carry-Ons

Carry-on baggage is limited to one carry-on bag plus one personal item. Personal items include laptops, purses, backpacks, briefcases, or camera cases. Place valuables and prescriptions in your carry-on bag.

Keep Boarding Pass and Identification Accessible

You must have your boarding pass and a photo ID to gain access to the departure gate when accessing the security checkpoint. Your boarding pass can either be issued at the ticket counter or via an airline check-in kiosk.


Place all undeveloped film and cameras with film in your carry-on bag. The screening equipment for checked baggage may damage undeveloped film.

Plan to Relax

It is easier to enjoy your trip if you relax. Plan extra time before your flight to visit the Airport’s gift shops and restaurants.
