FORT WORTH, Texas - American Airlines has resumed curbside check-in at most of the 80 domestic airports where it’s available. American is the only airline capable of checking in passengers at curbside with either paper or electronic tickets.
The FAA reinstated curbside check-in after security procedures were enhanced. American’s procedures are fully compliant with the new FAA requirements.
Most passengers traveling domestically and checking bags can take advantage of the curbside service to check in their luggage and get boarding passes. In some cases, passengers may be asked to check with a ticket counter agent.
Passengers are advised to arrive at the airport two hours prior to departure for domestic flights and three hours before departure for international flights.
American reminds customers that only ticketed passengers will be allowed beyond the security checkpoint. To clear a checkpoint, a passenger must have a paper ticket, a boarding pass or an e-ticket receipt, a printed confirmation or e-mail from American Airlines, or an official travel agency itinerary confirming an e-ticket.
