Needed for Security
Passengers at Baltimore- Washington International Airport are required to have boarding passes before passing through security screening areas. Previously, a travel itinerary was acceptable.
When entering security screening areas, passengers must present their boarding passes along with a valid government-issued photo ID, such as a driver's license or passport.
Boarding passes can be obtained at ticket counters, through airline self-serve check-in kiosks and at curbside check-in. Some airlines also are offering boarding passes online.
For more information, visit www.tsa.gov.
American Airlines recently installed self-serve check-in kiosks near its ticket counters at BWI, joining America West, Continental, Delta, Northwest, Southwest and US Airways.
The kiosks will allow domestic travelers with electronic tickets to obtain their boarding passes, select seats, check baggage and fly standby. AAdvantage members can also use the kiosks to request upgrades.
Passengers must use a major credit card as a form of identification at the kiosks. AAdvantage members traveling domestically can check-in and print boarding passes at www.aa.com.
For more information, call 800-433-7300.
