Airline Check-In/Passenger Screening Times

Passengers flying out on United Airlines need to be checked in for their flight no later than 45 minutes before flight time and 30 minutes before flight time for Delta passengers. Passengers who check in later will not be allowed to board their flight. The Airport STRONGLY encourages passengers to be checked in and in the Airport terminal AT LEAST one hour before flight time.

Passengers must be on board their departing aircraft 15 minutes before departure. The aircraft door will be closed 10 minutes before the flight.

Passenger screening opens each morning at 4:35 am. With the first United and Delta flights departing most days at the same time, passengers should be starting to go through screening at 4:35 am when screening opens. It is NOT POSSIBLE for TSA to screen all the passengers for the two early morning flights in enough time to get all the ticketed passengers on board unless passengers start the screening process when screening opens. The Airport STRONGLY encourages passengers on the first United and Delta flights (approximately 6 am departures) to arrive so that they can start the passenger screening process at 4:35 am.
