In light of recent incidents and concerns raised by Samsung about its Galaxy Note 7 devices, the Federal Aviation Administration strongly advises passengers not to turn on or charge these devices on board aircraft and not to stow them in any checked baggage. Visit FAA.gov for more information.


Lengthy TSA security wait times are expected through September.

Long security line wait times are expected at airports across the country that could have a serious impact on your travel. We strongly encourage you to arrive at the airport at least two hours before a trip within the US, and three hours before a trip that includes an international flight.

Also remember that busy travel times can mean heavy traffic, busy parking lots and airport shuttles, before you even make it into the airport. Check out our travel tips for expert advice on getting to and through the airport quickly and efficiently.
