US Airways announces a new convenience at usairways.com that enables customers to check-in for domestic flights and obtain boarding passes online.
Customers can access their reservations at usairways.com by entering personal and flight departure information. A link to Web check-in will be available on the US Airways homepage. Once in the reservation, customers can view the itinerary, select seats, and print boarding passes. Passengers needing to check baggage can do so at curbside check-in or at the airport ticket counter. Web check-in will be available beginning 6 hours, and up to 90 minutes, prior to domestic departures.
“Web check-in capability comes at a key time for our customers, as both the Christmas travel season and new Transportation Security Administration (TSA) security checkpoint access procedures get underway,” said Al Crellin, US Airways executive vice president of operations. “This new online capability creates yet another check-in alternative, complementing e-ticket kiosks and ticket counters during this busy and transitional time.”
As a result of recent TSA directives, many major airports now require boarding passes to proceed through security checkpoints. Airports that have made the shift to boarding pass requirements include US Airways’ largest hub in Charlotte, New York LaGuardia, Boston, and nearly 30 others nationwide. A complete list is available at usairways.com. Previously, e-ticket itineraries or tickets, accompanied by valid government-issued identification, sufficed. Customers will continue to be required to present proper identification at security checkpoints and at the gate prior to boarding the aircraft. Visit usairways.com for more information.
US Airways has more than 240 Self-Service Check-In Kiosks at 46 airports across the U.S. and Puerto Rico. From the kiosks, customers can check-in for flights within the U.S., and between the U.S. and San Juan, St. Thomas and St. Croix. Customers can also select seat assignments and print boarding passes.
