An expanded Transportation
Security Administration Security Checkpoint and a US Airways
priority queue line is now open at Ronald Reagan Washington National
Airport. Additionally, the full-service US Airways Shuttle ticket counter
has been relocated back to the Departure Level at Reagan National’s North
Pier, beginning this week. The TSA Security Checkpoint has expanded from four to six lanes, which
will assist in reducing wait times for customers during peak travel
periods. As with other airports with US Airways priority queue lines, the
queue is available during peak travel times for First Class and Envoy
Class customers, as well as Dividend Miles Preferred and Star Gold members.
Washington customers holding confirmed boarding passes for the next
available Shuttle departure to Boston or New York also may use the
priority queue line. This provides the same timesaving benefit for Shuttle
customers as in Boston and New York’s LaGuardia Airport.
The ticket counter, which was moved on Dec. 14, 2004, as part of a project
by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority to accommodate an
expansion of the North Pier security checkpoint, now is located one level
down from the main US Airways ticket counter, and adjacent to the Baggage
Claim Level escalators.
The full-service ticket counter for Shuttle customers departing Washington
includes full check-in, ticket purchase and flight change services. Kiosks
also are available at the Departure-Level Shuttle ticket counter for
customers without checked bags.
